Bob Hope’s hurt when Marlon Dingle takes his business elsewhere in Friday’s episode of Emmerdale (ITV, 7.00pm. See our TV Guide for full listings).

Bob Hope helped out Marlon Dingle earlier this week when he offered him the use of his cafe to set up a pop-up restaurant in the evenings.

Marlon has just been re-hired as The Woolpack’s chef and he’s been busy putting together a new menu for when the village pub finally reopens. 

It’s a bit of step down for Marlon because he used to own the pub with his cousin Chas until they were forced to sell it at the beginning of the year. 

The Woollie was bought by Chas and Marlon’s cousin Charity, who’s taken Marlon back on but isn’t 100 per cent convinced by his ideas for the new menu…

There's still another week to go before the pub’s doors to open again and Marlon’s hit on the idea of setting up a pop-up restaurant, which is the perfect way to get back into the swing of things and try out his new new ideas on the locals…

Turns out that the pop-up restaurant at the cafe has been a success so Marlon suggests moving it to a bigger venue…

Given that Bob gave Marlon the opportunity to have a pop-up event, he can’t help but feel hurt by Marlon wanting to take his business elsewhere!

Emmerdale continues weeknights from 7.00pm on ITV.
