In next week’s visits to Emmerdale, Alicia Gallagher (Natalie Anderson) is troubled when her sister Leyla sends a toy for little Jacob…
Jacob is of course – unbeknownst to him – Leyla’s, not Alicia’s son, but as Leyla didn’t want to keep the baby, and her sister Alicia was desperate for a child, the decision about Jacob’s future was an easy one and he’s always believed Leyla was simply his aunt.
David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) is one of only a handful of people who know that Jacob isn’t Alicia’s biological son, so given that he was formerly engaged to Leyla, when the toy arrives in the post, David is Alicia’s first port of call… Read more & comment »

And of course, in his absence, his wife Charity (Emma Atkins) had a one-night-stand with Jai’s best mate Declan Macey (Jason Merrells) who, as you can see in the first clip after the jump, is keen to ensure that Jai (Chris Bisson) never gets to know about the betrayal.

In next week’s episodes of Emmerdale, there’s not much Valentine’s love around for poor Alicia Gallagher or for Cain Dingle, both of whom are trying to come to terms with the end of their romances…
For Alicia that of course means having to move on from the fact that she’s still in love with David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) who’s set to marry his girlfriend Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) later this year.
But there’s yet another blow to the heart for Alicia (Natalie Anderson) next week when she learns that she’ll have to plan and oversee David and Priya’s wedding, given that they’ve chosen Home Farm as the venue for their nuptials… Read more & comment »
There’s romantic drama in the lives of some of our Dales residents next week, which begins when Katie Macey (Sammy Winward) moves out of Home Farm, telling hubby Declan that their marriage is over, while Alicia Gallagher learns that as the new wedding events manager, she has to play David and Priya’s big day!

However, not unreasonably, Declan (Jason Merrells) isn’t chuffed about the arrangement, and neither is Andy’s girlfriend Kerry (Laura Norton) but when Andy goes to Home Farm to pick up some of Katie’s things, Declan’s anger reaches new levels… Read more & comment »
Emmerdale couple David Metcalfe and Priya Sharma have of course been an item for months now, however, because David (Matthew Wolfenden) was in a sham marriage to Alicia Gallagher (Natalie Anderson) they had to keep their relationship a secret…
But as Alicia and her son Jacob now know about David and Priya – as will the rest of the village shortly – the couple can now be open about their romance, however, there’s to be an unexpected twist because while assuring Priya that it’s her he loves and not Alicia, shopkeeper David will accidentally propose!
Fiona Wade, who of course plays gorgeous barmaid Priya, has explained to Soaplife how her character gets the wrong end of the proposal stick.
She explained, “Priya’s excited about the engagement and she’s all wedding-obsessed!” Read more & comment »
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! Read more & comment »
As we reported yesterday, little Jacob Gallagher is going to be left distraught when he realizes that his step-dad David Metcalfe is in a relationship with barmaid Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) because of course, even since his mum Alicia told him that she and David were over, Jacob’s been hoping they’d get back together…
But when he spots David and Priya kissing, he knows that’s unlikely to happen, and David has to face up to what he’s been dreading most; telling Jacob the truth that in fact, he was never in love with Alicia (Natalie Anderson) and that they only married so that he could have custody of the little boy while his mum was in prison.
However, Alicia does of course have feelings for David, and has had for months, so despite wishing him and Priya well, she was devastated to learn that they were an item… Read more & comment »
Fans of Emmerdale will of course know that over Christmas, ex-con Alicia Gallagher (Natalie Anderson) learned that her husband David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) was in a relationship with gorgeous barmaid, Priya Sharma…
She and David had of course married so that David could have custody of Alicia’s son Jacob while she was in prison, and while that was the only reason he married Alicia, for her, things were less straightforward because she was, and still is, in love with him.
However, as mentioned, he’s in love with Priya (Fiona Wade) but had kept their romance a secret for Jacob’s sake, but when the little lad spots the pair kissing, he of course immediately assumes that the fact his mum and David have parted is all Priya’s doing…
A furious Jacob weeps as he yells as David and at his mother, prompting Alicia to decide that it might be best for her and her son if they move away from the village. Read more & comment »
