AFTER ending her relationship with Jai Sharma, Laurel Thomas took time before moving on.
And as her romance with Kit is underway, her stepdaughter Gabby is looking forward to meet her own match in Emmerdale.
Laurel Thomas is moving on from Jai Sharma
She shares a budding romance with physiotherapist Kit – but Jai feels awkward
He finds it hard to watch his former partner move on
The Hide café manager played by Charlotte Bellamy found cocaine in her former boyfriend Jai Sharma’s (portrayed by Chris Bisson) in previous scenes of the ITV soap.
Believing he had relapsed into his addiction to drugs, Laurel found it best to end the relationship altogether.
For several weeks, Laurel was happy to remain single but she eventually caught the attention of Marlon Dingle’s physical therapist, Kit (played by Thoren Ferguson).
The pair are enjoying a budding romance but Jai finds it awkward to see his former partner dating Kit.
However, one villager is pleased to see Laurel moving on and is even inspired by her decision.
Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) admits she too has been thinking about meeting someone.
The former troublesome teen became a mother for the first time in October, 2021, when she gave birth to a son named Thomas.
Since then, the youngster has focused on motherhood and hasn’t had the time to pay attention to anything but the well-being of her baby.
Her most recent love interest was none other than Jamie Tate, the father of her son Thomas – but he left the village by making everybody (including his mother Kim) believe he was dead.
Gabby has been rightly convinced for several weeks that Jamie is actually alive and has tried to find him.
She has been scared that Jamie could come to the eponymous village with the intention of taking Thomas away from her.
While she may not be interested in anybody, Gabby has been in Noah Dingle’s target line in the past.
Noah developed a crush on Gabby when Jamie asked him to keep an eye on her for him.
More recently, Noah tried to get Gabby to come visit him in prison – but she refused.
This prompted Amelia Spencer from taking the visiting request, stealing Gabby’s ID and paying Noah a visit herself.
But could Gabby find love in the Dales?
Emmerdale airs from Monday to Friday on ITV.
