EMMERDALE fans could not contain their emotions at tonight’s devastating episode as Faith Dingle passed away in the arms of her son Cain.

The ITV soap aired the heartbreaking scenes as she individually spent time with each of her loved ones before she made the decision to end her own life following her cancer battle. 

Faith Dingle passed away during tonight’s Emmerdale

Cain discovers a dying Faith

Throughout the episode, Faith (Sally Dexter) spent quality time with loved ones including daughter Chas, (Lucy Pargeter) daughter-in-law Moira Barton (Natalie J. Robb), friends Diane Sugden (Elisabeth Estensen) and Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) , grandson Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) and great-granddaughter Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill), who she supported during her own health battle years earlier. 

Faith was reflective throughout the episode as it appeared she had made her decision that it was her last day after a fun-filled ‘seaside’ day the day previous, particularly after referring it to her as ‘send-off’. 

Faith calls over Nate for a chat and to ask if he will assist her up the stairs and into bed. 

The pair enjoy a loving chat before Nate draws the curtains and says his goodbyes. 

Faith reaches over to her handbag and begins to unpack a variety of tablets and medicine bottles.

She also pulls out Sarah’s photos of the seaside day as she looks through them.

During a chat with Sarah, Moria notices she is wearing a locket that Faith said she would give to her ‘when she was in her box’ leading Moria to have her suspicions aroused. 

As Moira and Cain head to the pub in a panic, they discover an extremely poorly Faith in bed. 

Having seemingly taken an overdose, Faith initially whispers to the pair: “Go… please.”

A worried Cain insists on calling an ambulance but an extremely ill Faith tells him not to, asking him to ‘let her go’. 

Cain comforts a dying Faith in bed as they recount the happy memories of the previous day. 

Faith slips further and further away as she remains in her son’s arms as she takes her final breath. 

Fans’ eyes were watering at the heart-wrenching scenes as they were left balling at their screens. 

Taking to Twitter in their droves, broken fans expressed their pain at watching the hard-hitting scenes. 

One fan said: “My heart is breaking watching #Emmerdale. I’m sobbing. Cain telling Faith he loves her.”

Another added: “OMG I’m balling at Cain coming through for Faith in their most hearbreaking moment. #Emmerdale”

A third wrote: “This is just too much. Goodbye Faith. #Emmerdale”

While a fourth sobbed: “OMG, no! Cain’s speech to Faith is actually making me cry. #Emmerdale”

Emmerdale airs Monday-Friday at 7:30pm and this Sunday at 7pm on ITV.
