Massive shock for Charity, Arthur kiss confusion and Kim's fury in Emmerdale

Lives are thrown into turmoil in Emmerdale, with a stressful time for many next week.

Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) is facing new strain following some shock news via a mysterious call.

As she ends up swiping Caleb’s (Will Ash) car, she takes Cain (Jeff Hordley) along for the ride, and he soon discovers what is at the root of her behaviour.

Meanwhile, Arthur Thomas (Alfie Clarke), ends up in a confusing situation, when there is pushback against his LGBTQ+ assembly – and he doesn’t know which side Jai (Chris Bisson) is on.

He is also unsure where he stands with schoolfriend Marshall – especially when the pair almost share a kiss.

Here’s what’s to come next week.

Monday January 30

Will confronts Sam about his missing watch. As things get heated, Caleb warns Will and steps in to separate him from Sam. Sam is awestruck by Caleb coming to his defence.

Later at Home Farm, Will is thrown when Nicky reveals baby Thomas was playing with his watch and Kim is left frustrated knowing that she’s fallen out with Lydia for nothing.

When Marshall stands up for Arthur to a bully in front of Nicola and April there is a moment between the two boys as Arthur realises Marshall really is on his side.

Tuesday January 31

Kim apologises and offers Sam and Lydia their jobs back. Hurt Lydia agrees but wants Kim to understand that she is no longer a friend, just her boss.

Later, Will is shocked to learn Lydia and Sam have been reinstated and feels unsupported by Kim, but she doesn’t have time to dwell on this as Caleb arrives to sign off on the stud farm.

Frustrated Will doesn’t trust Caleb but Kim doesn’t want to hear it. Will is keen to assert his position as Kim’s husband in front of Caleb.

Bob tries desperately to get Nicola to buy his shares in the cafe but she’s having none of it. Later, Bob learns from Eric that they’ve got three days to pay the deposit.

Bernice and Bob are disappointed when their plan to get Jimmy drunk to convince Nicola to buy the shares, fails. When no one’s watching, scheming Nicola pulls out her phone and calls Eric.

Laurel makes a call to the school when Arthur tells her his LGBTQ History assembly has been cancelled. After her call, Laurel discloses that one parent complained.

After an insensitive comment from Jai, bewildered Arthur confronts Jai accusing him of being the one that called to cancel the assembly.

A hurt Arthur feels as though Jai is encouraging him to suppress his sexuality and go back in the closet.

Later, Marshall comes to check on Arthur, who warns him that if he’s not being honest then he needs to leave. Marshall’s bravado is stripped away and they almost share a kiss but Marshall’s dad calls and the moment is broken. Marshall panics and rushes off.

Noah learns his aunt Zoe set up a trust fund for him in his dad’s name.
