DEALING with her mother Faith’s cancer has pushed Chas Dingle to find comfort in Al Chapman.
But things come to a head for Emmerdale‘s illicit lovers as they’re caught during a secret meet-up.
Chas and AL continue their affair
The pair have bonded after Chas found out her mother was battling cancer
But Kerry is on to them
After announcing she’s been diagnosed with cancer, Faith Dingle revealed she would not be carrying on her chemotherapy, thus accepting her fate.
The village veteran is set to die from her illness as actress Sally Dexter confirmed she’s quitting the Yorkshire-based soap.
For her on-screen daughter Chas (played by Lucy Pargeter), the pressure’s too much to handle.
The Woolpack manager has received support from scheming businessman Al Chapman (Michael Wildman).
However, the bond got out of hand and the pair have embarked on a shock affair despite their past feud for the local pub and Chas’ marriage to Paddy Dingle (Dominic Brunt).
Next week, Chas is excited when she gets a message from her lover announcing his return to the eponymous village after a short trip.
As he arrives, both are unaware that his own oblivious partner, Kerry Wyatt (Laura Norton) is right behind him.
The situation becomes awkward when Kerry tells her cheating boyfriend she’d like to spend time with him and he deflects to go and meet with his mistress.
Paddy is keeping a close eye on his wife in the pub but Chas and Al still manage to organise a secret meeting.
But they don’t just have to stay wary of their respective significant others.
Unbeknownst to them, Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) overheard their conversation and runs to Kerry to tell her all about it.
Kerry takes matters into her own hands and, all glammed up, awaits Al in a hotel reception, where a post-coital Chas and Al revel in their affair in their bedroom.
The pair leave and the businessman panics when he clocks Kerry in the reception.
He ushers Chas, unaware of the situation, away – but Kerry smells a rat when the receptionist tells her that no Al Chapman has booked a room at the hotel.
Kerry has no other choice but to turn heel and leave.
Later on, still glammed up in the village, Kerry mulls over everything and confronts Al.
Will Al, who is no stranger to infidelity, be honest with her?
