Emma seems ready to confess at James’s inquest in tonight’s first Emmerdale

05-thursday-emmerdale-01

It’s another difficult day for Emma as she has to attend James’s inquest. Things start off well when a pathologist explains that the drugs in James’s system are consistent with his broken leg.

When Emma takes to the stand, she admits that James’s death was her fault. As everyone – including the Barton boys – watches on, will they realise the significance of Emma’s words?

Meanwhile, Belle is upset when Zak and Joanie reveal that they’ve decided to move away from the village. However, there are already signs that Zak doesn’t really want to go.

Elsewhere, when David gets wind of the skydive plan, he tells his loved ones that he’d rather fundraise for his cancer ward. Frank gets involved by dressing up as an elf and making a sign which invites people to throw foam pies at him for charity. But will the fun afternoon take a turn when Bobby arrives?

Also, Brenda and Carly could be in trouble when Marlon uses some face cream and gets a rash.
