In the episode of Emmerdale that airs on Thursday 1st May, Val Pollard (Charlie Hardwick) is still determined to move on from what she sees – though he doesn’t necessarily agree – as her failed marriage to Eric (Chris Chittell) and to that end, she arranges another date…
As fans of the show will know, Val recently ditched Ian (Robert Cavanah) after realising that there was no hope of them having a lasting relationship.
Val initially turned to Ian because he too is HIV positive – of course, it was actually Ian who passed the illness on to Val – so she figured they’d have more chance of making a future together than she and Eric do. Read more & comment »

Young Emmerdale resident Belle Dingle is determined to plead guilty to the manslaughter of Gemma Andrews, who of course died following a blow to the head which she sustained in a fall…
