Coming up next week on Emmerdale, things go from bad to worse for Alicia Gallagher as not only is she struggling to cope with her angry son Jacob – he is of course devastated that his mum and David Metcalfe have split up – but she’s also having trouble containing her jealousy towards Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) who is of course dating David.
So it’s little surprise then that Alicia (Natalie Anderson) decides it would be best if she and Jacob moved out of David’s (Matthew Wolfenden) and into a place of their own, but in the episode that airs on January 17th, she’s set to find that it’s not that easy to find somewhere to rent on her wages from The Woolpack.
And in fact, she could find herself out of a job too when Rishi (Bhasker Patel) has to intervene in a row between Alicia and Priya as they antagonize each other behind the bar!
So is it really over for Alicia and David? Well of course, David only married Alicia so he could get custody of Jacob while she was in prison, but Alicia admitted she was in love with him at the time, and still is, bless her.
However, in a recent interview, Matthew Wolfenden hinted that we shouldn’t rule out the possibility that David and Alicia may in fact get together, so watch this space! For now, here’s a sneak peek from the episode that airs on January 17…
Also coming up next week, Robbie Lawson just can’t resist stirring things between his uncle Declan Macey (Jason Merrells) and his wife Katie, who of course, Robbie can’t stand…
As we’ll see on January 14, Robbie tells Declan that he saw Katie and her former husband Andy Sudgen (Kelvin Fletcher) getting “cosy” together in the pub, which is newsworthy to Declan because Katie had told him she was spending the evening with Chas (Lucy Pargeter).
However, Robbie may find that Declan is inclined to shoot the messenger as his gossiping does not go down well.
Here’s a clip…
Would you like to see Alicia and David together? And do you think Declan and Katie will call time on their brief marriage?
