Ashley Thomas’s dementia is set to make for more heartbreaking ‘Emmerdale’ scenes, specifically on Christmas Day.
The morning will get off to a shaky start, and viewers will see Laurel and Sandy taking the children to church, telling their friends that Ashley is not having a good day.
However, he will then stun everybody, by stumbling in midway through the service. But is it a sign that things are looking up? Or will Ashley fail to comprehend what’s happening?
So far, the storyline has led to a number of incredibly tough scenes, and on Tuesday (20 December), there will be an episode dedicated to it.
Viewers will see everything from Ashley’s point of view, getting a unique look at what it is like to struggle with the illness.
It’s not just the Thomases who are set for a difficult time over the festive season though, as there will also be drama at the former Dingle household.
When Joanie and Zak spend the day with Lisa and Belle, a thoughtful gift ends up revealing a little bit too much. Think Max Branning and Stacey Branning (though not quite so graphic).
These scenes air on Christmas Day. Catch up on all the latest soap news and spoilers here.
