Emmerdale's Rodney Blackstock wants more in Friday's episode (ITV, 7.00pm see our TV Guide for listings).

Lady-loving Rodney Blackstock's been single for a quite while now and he's really missing being in a relationship. 

Recently he's seen a glimmer of hope of the potential for romance but as it stands things aren't looking promising and he's gutted to realise he may have jumped the gun.

Can Rodney's daughters, Bernice and Nicola, cheer up their lovelorn dad who's taken a pasting of the emotional kind? Will his girls ease Rodney's emotional pain… or will they stay out of it?
