Emmerdale has hinted that Debbie Dingle could be spending Christmas in prison.
Debbie will soon have to face trial for her role in Ross Barton’s acid attack, following her recent decision to confess everything to the police.
Thursday night’s episodes confirmed that Debbie’s trial will begin on December 14, just days before the festive season begins.
In a bittersweet twist, Debbie’s daughter Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill) has been told that she should be allowed home from hospital for Christmas as she’s recovering well after her heart transplant.
With so much at stake and Debbie potentially facing a tough sentence, could she end up spending Christmas away from her daughter?
Last month, Debbie told the police that she set Ross’s attack in motion by paying Simon McManus to beat up Joe Tate. Simon threw acid at Ross in a case of mistaken identity.
As Debbie didn’t ask Simon to use acid, she’s hoping for leniency in court – but whether she’ll get it is another matter altogether.
Charley Webb, who plays Debbie, recently explained: “That story has been a bit muddled and confused. Debbie never ordered the acid, it was just something that Simon did. Even though Debbie did want Joe to get beaten up for what he’d done, that’s a very Dingle thing to do.
“The Dingles get people beaten up all the time. Her dad is Cain and he’s a villain, so it’s natural territory for her for that to happen. But obviously it did go really wrong with the acid.”
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
