Emmerdale's siege has the villagers up in arms in Monday's episode (ITV, 7.00pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

In the wake of the siege at the HOP last week, the villagers are all over the place. Russ, who had been introduced to the locals as Wendy's friendly ex-husband who was down on his luck, showed his true evil colours when he drew a gun on Victoria demanding she hand over the inheritance his late mum had passed on to Vic's son Harry.

She and Wendy were trapped inside the HOP and as a scary situation unravelled, police were called and onlookers Bob, Jacob and Dan were at the scene when a shot was fired.

Who will get in there first and pitch the idea to HOP owner Kim? And will the Tate give the idea the green light?
