Poor Rachel is still waiting in the wings for Jai to tell his wife Charity about the baby they are expecting together in Emmerdale, but will he confess all, is he trying to have his cake and eat it?
The answer, it seems, is the latter, as in tonight’s episode of the hit ITV soap, viewers will be shocked to see him trying to buy the mother of his unborn child off!
Fans of the show will know how a few weeks ago Jai (Chris Bisson) and Rachel (Gemma Oaten) had a drunken one night stand which resulted in an unplanned pregnancy.
Rachel decided to have a termination to Jai’s relief, but a change of heart from Jai at the last minute left her issuing an ultimatum, tell Charity (Emma Atkins) about the baby and be in its life, or never be involved.
Jai, who has been given a baby ban by Charity, was left between a rock and a hard place, deciding who to choose between his wife and the unborn child he so desperately wants, and reluctantly agreed to tell Charity everything.
That was a fee weeks ago, and Rachel’s patience is quickly running out, but tonight she is in for the shock of her life when Jai tries to pay her off with a posh flat in Leeds to hide her and the baby away in.
The situation arises when Rachel is furious to learn that jai still hasn’t told Charity about the baby. Jai apologises but admits he is terrified of losing his wife and so offers her the flat in a bid to keep her quiet, leaving Rachel stunned!
Rachel’s reaction is to tear strips out of him verbally, telling him he can’t buy her off, but will her next move be?
Emmerdale can be seen week nights on ITV1 / ITV1 HD.
