It looks like there is trouble brewing for the Dingles on tonight's episode of Emmerdale (7.00pm - see our TV Guide for listings)...

It certainly hasn't been a good week for Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick), who has been struggling with the dilemma of whether to reveal what happened when she encountered a drunk Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) outside Hawksford Outdoor Pursuits on last week's episodes of the ITV soap.

Struggling alcoholic Liv is supposed to have cleaned-up her act.

But she was driven back to the demon drink after a BIG fallout with her brother Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller), after it was discovered that Liv had deliberately tried to sabotage Aaron's boyfriend Ben Tucker's (Simon Lennon) search for a new job in Cornwall.

But now there is a serious rift forming within the Dingle clan after the recent SHOCK turn of events in the village...

Lydia's husband, Sam (James Hooton) and family member, Mandy (Lisa Riley) certainly do NOT look happy in this picture!

WHAT is going on?

WHO has fallen out with who?

And could this just be the start of a whole lot of family strife for the Dingles?

One thing is for sure, if there's any argy-bargy business going down at Dingle HQ, Lydia can most certainly hold her own.

Remember when she took infamous family member, Cain (Jeff Hordley) to task for getting Sam involved in his shady business!

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters. Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave? Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy. He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
