Emmerdale fans convinced THIS new romance is DOOMED from the start


Things are hotting up between Priya and Al...

Emmerdale fans have predicted that the new romance between Al Chapman and Priya Sharma is doomed from the start after things got heated between the pair tonight.

Fans watched Emmerdale's Priya and Al almost kiss earlier in the week, however the moment was ruined when they were interrupted by someone at work.

However, as things got steamy between the pair, Jai returned to the office just at the wrong time, killing the moment.

But while Jai was oblivious to what he had interrupted, fans will know that he wouldn't be happy if he knew what his sister had been up to.

After working together for so long, there is no love lost between enemies Al and Jai, especially after Al tried to blame the zip wire accident at Hawksford Outdoor Pursuits on Jai while he was in the midst of his drug relapse.

But, it seems Emmerdale fans agree with Jai, because they're not convinced that Priya and Al make a good couple, either...
