CHAS Dingle was left heartbroken when her illicit lover Al Chapman was shot during a struggle with her brother Cain.

But the Emmerdale pub manager is unable to attend the businessman’s funeral as their affair comes to light.

Chas Dingle is mourning for Al Chapman

But she’s not the only one

Kerry Wyatt finds support in the Woolpack bar manager

Kerry Wyatt and Chas (played respectively by Laura Norton and Lucy Pargeter) are mourning for the same man.

But while the first is able to do it publicly, the Woolpack manager has to keep her pain hidden from everyone in the eponymous village.

Next week on ITV, Chas is thrown when Kerry reveals Al’s funeral is the following day and asks if she’ll consider accompanying her.

The next day, however, Chas explains she needs to attend Liv’s send off and miss out on Al’s funeral, which Kerry understands.

While Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson) shakily opens Liv’s urn to spread her ashes, Chas is unable to contain her grief.

She pushes her husband Paddy (Dominic Brunt) away and decides to leave a sobbing mess.

Back behind the bar, Chas is distracted when Chloe Harris, Dawn and Billy Fletcher all return from Al’s funeral.

She desperately tries to cover her emotions but is thrown to find out there was a poor turnout.

Kerry later breaks down in front of Chas outside Keepers and the latter is awash with the same grief.

She slips the order of service into her coat and leaves.

While at home, Paddy is thrown when Chas lets out her upset and rage after secretly reading Al’s order of service.

He begins to question if there’s more to Chas’ escalating grief after opening up to Lydia – and it’s only a matter of time before he finds out the truth.

When Kerry expresses the need to talk to Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) about the loan Al took out in her name, Chloe offers to do it for her.

The young woman becomes increasingly convinced Al was cheating on Kerry (which Belle knew about) as she goes through his credit card statements with Victoria Sugden.

Her suspicions are only confirmed when Al’s estate agent calls and lets slip he was buying a house for his partner and her child – a future he had planned with Chas ahead of Faith and Liv’s funeral.

Chloe tells a devastated Kerry everything and, reeling from the betrayal, the shop worker finds comfort in Chas of all people, still unaware she was the other woman in Al’s life all along.

With a guilty conscience, Chas encourages Kerry to make a huge decision.

Will she be exposed as the businessman’s lover?

Emmerdale airs weeknights, from Monday to Friday, at 7.30pm.
