The new year has got off to a terrible start for furious Cain Dingle.
He is absolutely livid when he finds out his son Nate has been kicked out of home by his betrayed fiancée Tracy.
Nate swore blind to Cain, and the rest of the Dingles, that he hadn’t cheated on his fiancee Tracy during his lads’ night out in Hotten when he ‘stayed over’ at flirty stranger Fiona’s house. But he was lying, and Tracy now knows.
Cain’s so angry with his son for his lies and despicable behaviour, he refuses to let him stay at Butler’s Farm!
As the father and son talk, Cain is so enraged that he almost loses it with Nate.
But there’s another reason behind Cain’s white-hot fury.
His little boy Kyle is in hospital and in a critical condition.
The Dingle dad is desperately worried about his lad and wants someone to blame.
That someone is Ellis Chapman who was meant to be looking out for the little boy when he took him out with Belle.
Wanting revenge on Al’s son, Cain starts by insisting his cousin Marlon boots Ellis out of his rented room Tall Trees! How will Al react as Cain wages war on his son Ellis?
Elsewhere, with Vanessa back in the village, Charity is a hot spin which isn’t doing her relationship with Mack much good.
Vanessa had planned a flying visit to see her sister Tracy and little niece Frankie, but given the cheating saga, things have changed.
When Nate comes calling at Tug Ghyll, wanting to see his daughter Frankie and to pick up some stuff, protective Vanessa refuses to let him in!
How will Charity handle it when she hears Vanessa’s decided she’s sticking around indefinitely to help her distraught sibling?
Can the exes find a way to co-exist?
Emmerdale continues on weeknights on ITV from 7.00pm.
