TENSIONS arise in Home Farm as Will Taylor becomes determined to find out who has been stealing from him.

But his accusations leave his wife Kim Tate without a friend in Emmerdale.

Sam and Lydia Dingle are accused of stealing in Home Farm

The situation escalates

And Will’s actions have horrible consequences

Lydia and Sam Dingle (respectively portrayed by Karen Blick and James Hooton) have worked at Home Farm for several years.

Over time, the cleaner even formed a bond with Kim (Claire King), despite her long-running feud with the Dingle clan.

However, in recent scenes, Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) is convinced the couple may be responsible for several thefts.

Coming up on ITV, Will confronts Sam about his missing watch and things quickly get heated to the point where Caleb Milligan (Will Ash) steps in to separate the pair.

Sam is stunned by Caleb coming to his defence, particularly due to his proximity to Cain Dingle, who has been actively rejecting the newcomer.

Later on, Will is thrown when Nicky the nanny reveals baby Thomas Tate was playing with his watch.

This leaves Kim frustrated as she realises she fell out with Lydia for nothing.

The following day, Kim apologises and offers Sam and Lydia their jobs back.

A hurt Lydia agrees but she lets Kim know that she will no longer be considered a friend, just her boss.

However, this creates more tension between Kim and her husband.

Will is shocked when he learns that both Lydia and Sam have been reinstated and feels unsupported by Kim.

Unfortunately for him, Kim has no time on her schedule to dwell on his hard feelings as Caleb Milligan arrives to sign off on the stud farm and officially become her business partner.

This only makes matters worse for Will who thinks Caleb is a shyster.

Kim doesn’t want to hear it, prompting Will to assert his position as her husband in front of Caleb.

And as witnessed by Emmerdale viewers, he isn’t the only one to be wary of the newcomer.

But should Will and Kim really be worried about potential danger within the Home Farm walls?

Can Kim and Lydia sort things out?

Emmerdale airs from Monday to Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
