The festive season will be a tough one for Emmerdale's Belle Dingle, who spots her dad kissing Joanie on Christmas eve.
The youngster will then be faced with a difficult choice, as she weighs up whether to tell her mum about Zak’s affair.
While bosses are yet to reveal how things will develop, executive producer Kate Oates has admitted that the village won’t exactly be a hotspot of festive cheer.
“It’s going to be a very emotional Christmas,” she told Radio Times last month. “There won’t be whistles and bangs. It will all be very heartfelt.
“I think that’s right for us because we’ve had such a stunt-led summer and it’s good to bring it down to grassroots.”
Other storylines set to keep viewers on the edge of their seats include Eric and David Pollard’s troublesome relationship, and Debbie and Ross’s first Christmas together.
There’s also an appearance from ‘Corrie’ legend Liz Dawn to look forward to.
Watch ‘Emmerdale’ tonight (24 December) at 7pm to see what happens next. Catch up on all the latest soap news and spoilers here.
