EMMERDALE fans spotted a huge blunder as Dan Spencer was charged with GBH after he punched Amelia’s stalker Lloyd.

In a bid to protect his daughter Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell), Dan (Liam Fox) confronted her online stalker Lloyd (Matt Sutton) and punched him, which resulted in him being rushed to hospital.

Fans pointed out a major blunder with the police

Things took an unexpected turn when Dan headed to the hospital to confront Lloyd over what he did and ended up meeting Lloyd’s wife, Julie.

Last night’s episode of the ITV soap saw Dan being charged with grievous bodily harm.

After being released on bail, he returned home and he refused to tell Amelia what had really happened.

However, viewers pointed out a huge blunder in the police proceedings.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “They’ve not even questioned or gone through Amelia’s phone ffs. #Emmerdale.”

Another wrote: “Wait a minute. Have the police not talked to Amelia… and searched every nook & cranny for the teenage pest’s mobile and laptop devices #Emmerdale.”

A third penned: “How did they not find his messages to Amelia?! my guess is he used a burner phone or something? #Emmerdale.”

Emmerdale boss Laura Shaw has teased a dark new storyline for Dan as he is sent to prison.

She said: “We want to show the stark reality and devastating impact one punch can have. In a moment of madness, Dan’s world will be turned upside down.

“His actions could cost him his freedom and more tragically could cost Lloyd his life.

“As the story unfolds, we’ll see Dan battle with the guilt of what he’s done and the impact this one violent act has on his family, friends and the wider community.”

Dan actor Liam Fox added: “This storyline is the best I’ve been a part of in all my time in Emmerdale. When it was first discussed with me, I just knew it was going to be something special.

“The producers have absolutely come up trumps with a story that really does mean something. So many of us have been in a situation where we could be put in the same position as Dan.

“Who wouldn’t want to protect their daughter from unwanted attention? Every day of the week somebody somewhere may strike out to hit someone not knowing what that punch could lead to.”

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7:30pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
