As fans of Emmerdale will know, vet Rhona Kirk (Zoe Henry) is battling with her addiction to painkillers, but so far, the only person who knows the truth about her plight is her friend and colleague Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick), but she keeps pestering Rhona to tell her husband Paddy the truth…

And after a weekend away becomes a disaster thanks to Rhona, she’s forced to do just that, but at the last moment, she claims she’s an alcoholic rather than a prescription drug addict!

The drama begins on Monday, June 3 when a withdrawing Rhona spots Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) taking Sandy (Freddie Jones) his prescription…

Later, under the pretence that she wants to check on Tootsie, Rhona calls in to Woodbine Cottage and while there, she rummages frantically for Sandy’s meds.

Then, in an hour long episode that airs on Tuesday, June 4, while on a weekend away with Paddy (Dominic Brunt) Marlon (Mark Charnock) and Laurel, while the others go on a walk, Rhona volunteers to stay behind to cook dinner…

In the double-bill of episodes that air on Thursday, June 6, Vanessa has sussed that it was Rhona who stole Sandy’s med, and so she confronts her, saying once again that Rhona has to tell Paddy. She threatens to stop helping Rhona cover up what’s going on, adding that if Rhona doesn’t clue Paddy in, then she will.

Desperate to keep Vanessa on side, Rhona later tells Paddy she has an alcohol problem, but she assures him she will get herself sorted. She pours a bottle of wine down the sink to prove it, and Paddy looks relieved.

Although worried Rhona hasn’t told Paddy the truth, Vanessa’s somewhat appeased when she hands Rhona a leaflet for a support group, and her friend reassures her she has contacted them already.

But of course, she hasn’t…

Don’t miss that drama next week, but for now, here’s a sneak peek at what’s ahead this week…
