Emmerdale’s Ashley Thomas is, once again, going to be at the centre of the action in the coming weeks, but he won’t be the only village resident facing drama.

In recent episodes, viewers have seen Ashley’s health go from bad to worse, and to top it all off, he’ll go missing this week.

We can now reveal that while Ashley is found safe, the closing days of the month will bring more drama for the Thomas family, while elsewhere in the Dales, Harriet Finch, Jai Sharma and Faith Dingle will also be forced to face up to a number of issues.
