There's drama in tonight's Emmerdale when a shock twist leaves Kerry Wyatt fighting for her life...

Tonight's Emmerdale promises to have viewers on the edge of their seats as Kerry fights for her life in hospital following her fight with Tracy Metcalfe last week.

The pair were arguing after Tracy discovered Kerry and Amy were the ones responsible for the fire that killed her dad, Frank Clayton, but the fight took a sinister turn when Kerry tried to stop Tracy from going to the police and she fell, hitting her head on a pile of bricks.

Kerry has been in hospital since her fall, but tonight's Emmerdale (7pm, see our TV Guide for full listings) sees her take a turn for the worst, leaving her life hanging in the balance.

Tracy is still reeling from what happened with Kerry, and while she starts to blame herself for what has happened to Kerry, Vanessa and Charity try to reassure her that she isn't to blame for Kerry being in hospital.

However, when Amy comes to the house to get some of Kerry's belongings, she lashes out at Tracy, blaming her for what has happened and tells her that she will make sure the police know that she is guilty.

Tracy is left terrified, and despite Vanessa's reassurances that Amy can't go to the police because then they will start asking questions about why they were arguing in the first place, Tracy is convinced she is going to find herself in big trouble.

Meanwhile, Dan, Amelia and Amy are at the hospital waiting for an update on Kerry, and at first it seems that she is going to be okay when Amy is allowed in to see her mum and the pair have a chat.

However, by the end of the episode, things take a sudden turn when the doctor calls a crash team into Kerry's room and they fight to revive her.

When Kerry doesn't respond on their first attempt, Amy is left devastated that this is the end for her mum.

Will Kerry pull through, or has the drama surrounding Frank's untimely death just got a whole lot more complicated?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
