Emmerdale – Soap

ITV - Weekdays

The bombshell of Faith’s terminal illness leaves the Dingles in turmoil this week. Predictably, Cain deals with the upsetting news the only way he knows how – by lashing out. But Chas is suffering in silence, and when her mum announces she doesn’t want to carry on with her chemotherapy, she urges her to reconsider. As a result, Faith finds herself railroaded into agreeing to more treatment.

With Chas clearly struggling, Paddy feels useless as he tries, and fails, to find a way to help his wife – and ironically, it’s Al she opens up to when they run into each other on Main Street. After listening to his good advice, Chas apologises to Faith for pushing her into more chemotherapy, and both women’s tough facades crumble as they finally put their differences aside and embrace.

Unfortunately, Paddy’s best efforts to offer practical help only enrage Chas when he arrives home with flyers for various hospices in the area, and once again, she vents to a sympathetic Al. Despite everything that’s happened between them, he tells her he wants to be her friend, and as he too starts to open up, the old attraction between them is clearly rekindled.
