Charity Dingle is left devastated after Tracy Metcalfe drops a bombshell revelation about her sister Vanessa Woodfield on Emmerdale next week.

The Woolpack owner, played by Emma Atkins, has become more paranoid over recent weeks as estranged partner Vanessa appears reluctant to see her.

Earlier this year, Vanessa was diagnosed with bowel cancer and has been making plans in the tragic event that she were to die, including leaving Charity with son Johnny.

But Charity has become increasingly upset as the months go on without Vanessa at her side.

This week, Charity ends up smooching a man - but instantly regrets it.

Yet the damage is done and their relationship in tatters, though Charity is desperate to fix things as she's full of self-loathing.

Charity hits the bottle in a bid to cope next week, though Tracy isn't too sympathetic towards her and tells her that she's brought it all on herself.

But Charity presses on, asking if she can take Johnny to see Vanessa to remind her of their family.

However, she's not ready for Tracy's bombshell which ends up decimating all her hopes of of a reconciliation.

Is it all over for Charity and Vanessa?
