Al's past came back to haunt him as a newcomer in Emmerdale delivered some home truths.

Over the past week, Al has been bragging to Priya and Jai about his new award.

Al also revealed he had secured a major contract for the HOP and had invited the CEO of a drink's company for a meeting.

But prior to the presentation Charity met the CEO, Chloe, in the village and informed her of Al's indiscretions.

Arriving at the offices, Chloe informed Al she wouldn't be working with the company - saying her ex-husband cheated on her and then tried to destroy her business.

A furious Al then fired Priya, wrongly assuming she was the one who dished the dirt on him.

Fans loved Chloe's feisty nature, with many wondering if she was here to stay.

Gavin tweeted: "Chloe", followed by three clapping emojis.

Kevin said: "Brilliant Chloe", followed by cry-laughing signs.

And Brad wrote: "Wow Chloe."

Meanwhile, Charity broke into the HOP office in an attempt to steal Chloe's contact information to get back into Chas’ good books.

Al however caught Charity red-handed and in an attempt to distract him, she threw the trophy from his business award in the air and ran for it.

As Al leapt to catch his trophy, he fell, banging his head, and dropped to the floor.
