Emmerdale's Charity Dingle is wracked with guilt in Thursday's hour-long episode (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

When Charity shopped Noah to the police for stalking Chloe it wasn't a decision she made lightly.

Not only did the move put her at odds with Cain – who couldn't believe she'd gone against the Dingle code and shopped one of their own – she wasn't sure if her son would ever forgive her.

But Charity knew she had to do right by Noah, for once, and to show him right from wrong.

Noah doesn't see it like that at all, however. He can't believe his mum has done something which could land him in prison.

With the plea hearing about to happen, Charity's panicking about the consequences as Noah's said he's not going to plead guilty despite the huge amount of evidence stacked against him.

But things get even more stressful for the mum when Noah has a clash with Amy and announces he's not going to court – he's going on the run!

To Charity's relief, Sarah gets through to Noah and makes him see sense.
