Emmerdale's David Metcalfe has marriage on his mind in Tuesday's episode (ITV, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Emmerdale shopkeeper David Metcalfe just can't help himself where women are concerned. He's had almost as many flings as he's sold pints of semi-skimmed!

His lady-loving past has caused real problems with his son Jacob who's witnessed a long line of lovers troop in – and out – of their home.

But David reckons he's really cracked it this time round with Victoria Sugden.

But will the shopkeeper listen to what his dad's got to say?

To Leyla's horror, Suzy reiterates her plan to keep her nose clean and backs it up by tipping the last of her coke stash down the sink! 

Will Leyla listen when Suzy urges her to quit getting high while she's ahead? Is it even possible for secret drug taker Leyla to stop?
