Emmerdale hints at grave danger for Cain next week...

Emmerdale has revealed there is a shocking twist heading for Cain Dingle next week when he is kidnapped and held to ransom.

While it is usually Cain (Jeff Hordley) who is causing the trouble, this time it seems Mr Dingle is the one on the receiving end of someone's wrath.

A spoiler tweet from Emmerdale has revealed that Cain is tied up and gagged while being held hostage in a barn.

It is left up to Cain's ex, Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) to find £5000 of ransom money to save Cain's life.

But will she be able to raise the cash in time?

It's no secret that Moira and Cain still have feelings for one another, so it is likely Moira will be racing against the clock to get her hands on the money.

Or could Cain's mystery kidnapper be the same mysterious stranger that Charity bumps into next week?

The plot thickens 

Charity is set to cheat on Vanessa after sharing a shock kiss with a mystery man who crashes into her car.

But after the speaks fly between the pair, Charity is surprised to hear a noise coming from the stranger's car boot.
