BRENDA Walker is in for a shock next week in Emmerdale when she returns only to realise that Nicola King has taken over the cafe.

Brenda left out of shame after an awful incident involving Dan Spencer.

Disaster struck when the cafe owner accidentally poisoned him with almonds, causing Dan to suffer a seizure and damage his back. 

To make matters worse, Brenda tried to cover up her part in the incident.

But it all backfired when Mandy did some fishing in the bin behind the cafe and dug out incriminating evidence.

With Dan partially paralysed and unable to work, Brenda then offered him £10,000 compensation money for the accident to try and make amends. 

But with Dan still struggling to cope and his daughter Amelia seeking revenge, Brenda was shunned by the village and eventually pushed out.
