Emmerdale's Bernice Blackstock confronts Rishi about their failed date in the second of Friday's episode (see our TV Guide for full listings).

Bernice Blackstock hasn't been the luckiest in love and is currently single.

So the idea of a lowkey lunch date with fellow singleton Rishi Sharma appealed to the flirty beautician.

But Bernice was mortified when the Sharma granddad bailed on her leaving her high and dry without explanation.

Will Rishi explain when Bernice confronts him about his vanishing act?
