Emmerdale's Moira Dingle puts her marriage on the line on New Year's Eve (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

Moira Dingle is going out of her mind with worry and stress.

Her jailed hubby has insisted she's not to talk to his estranged sibling Caleb who's offering to help out with the Kyle situation, which is getting more intense by the minute.

But with Cain stuck in jail — having taken the rap for his son Kyle's hushed-up accidental murder of Al Chapman — there's not much the Dingle can do if people want to defy him.

And his very own wife Moira is about to do just that.
