EMMERDALE fans are in shock after Marlon Dingle begged to be taken back to hospital after choking on water tonight.
The chef – who is played by actor Mark Charnock in the ITV soap – was given water by his daughter April tonight after they were left alone together but it went horrendously wrong.
Marlon began to choke on the water and April panicked, screaming for help from Rhona.
She rushed in and saved Marlon by getting the water out of his throat, but April was still terrified.
“I thought he was having another stroke,” she said.
Rhona reassured her telling her: “He was thirsty, and you gave him a drink.”

“We just have to be careful just until he gets better.”
At dinner April was still struggling with what happened with Rhona telling her: “I know that today’s little setback has shaken you but you’re going to be OK.
“These things happen. The hospital taught me what to do when it happens and they are always there to support us.”
As April panicked about what happened, Marlon told her: “It wasn’t your fault.”
April told them: “But you can’t be with him all the time, and what if it happens again or something worse and I’m on my own?
“How are we supposed to live like this?”
She stormed out and Marlon became upset, trying to explain to Rhona that he wanted to go back to hospital until he was better.
The upsetting scenes left fans feeling emotional.
