We return to Emmerdale on Monday 20 January to see that even though Rachel’s still AWOL, Sam refuses to accept that she’s gone for good.

Jai, however, thinks her disappearance is a sign of her guilt, and he worries that Rachel’s gone for good with Archie, and Ali struggles to hold it together as people start demanding answers from her, given that she’s Rachel’s sister. Will the truth come out?

Later, when DS Reed admits to Sam they have new evidence that backs up Rachel’s confession, Sam comes to his own conclusion, which is that Declan has set Rachel up in order to get his insurance money…

So when Debbie observes a heated exchange between Sam and Declan, she grows suspicious of Charity and Declan’s behaviour. Is Sam on to something? And will Debbie be the one to piece it together? One thing’s for sure, Charity is suddenly very unnerved.

Elsewhere, at a department store, Brenda’s eyeing up MP3 players as sales assistant Neil appears, offering advice, but she’s quick to distract him as she slips the MP3 player in her bag. Flustered and panicking about getting caught, Brenda rummages in her bag to pay for her batteries.

When she returns to the café, Brenda seems pleased and shows no sign of guilt. But when Neil arrives in Connelton, Brenda panics. Has she been rumbled?

Meanwhile, Priya deflects attention from anyone who’s spotted that she’s not eating, and elsewhere, Rhona thinks Vanessa may be short of friends and so suggests she and Vanessa go out, but she manages to offend Vanessa in doing so.

Here’s a look at what’s coming up…
