Fans of Emmerdale will know that Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) has become ruthless in her pursuit of money, and as we’ve seen in previous episodes, she even slept with courier rider Dom (Wil Johnson) so that she could facilitate the downfall of the company he worked for with the express intention of taking all their business for herself…

That company were of course secretly running drugs, and in order to finish their business off – so that she could take it over – Debbie planted drugs in the firm’s offices then tipped off police in an anonymous call.

She then had her mum Charity (Emma Atkins) steal the company’s client list, and in the episode that airs on February 7th, we’ll see Debbie meeting up with one of those clients; a man named Pete…

However, when Debbie and Charity meet up with Pete, a normal business lunch turns sinister when – after Charity leaves to take a call – Pete suggests to Debbie that she could make a fortune is she takes over the shady side of the courier company and agrees to have her employees deliver “special packages.”

Ambitious Debbie doesn’t seem shocked by the proposal, and she arranges to meet up with Pete later to discuss it further, however, in the meantime, Dom’s daughter Gemma has spotted Pete, and it’s clear she’s afraid of him…

So when she tells her dad about seeing him with Debbie, Dom immediately goes to see Cain (Jeff Hordley) to tell him that Pete’s a nasty piece of work and that Debbie needs to stay well away from him.

However, Debbie refuses to be put off, prompting Cain to decide that he’ll have to tackle the problem differently, so, having enlisted Dom’s help, he goes to visit Pete and – baseball bat in hand – warns him to leave Debbie out of his shady dealings.

But Pete clearly hasn’t taken heed of Cain’s threat, and in the episode that airs on February 8th, we’ll see Debbie secretly meeting him on a deserted stretch of road. But when he tries to get her to get into his car, she refuses.
