Emmerdale lining up shock attack storyline for one villager

It follows on from the recent attacks on Billy and Ethan.

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale has confirmed that one villager will sadly become the victim of a shocking attack, as they get cornered by a gang and mugged.

The villager in question is being kept a secret for now, but Inside Soap reports that the storyline is less about the attack itself, although it will leave them bloodied and bruised, and more about the potential long-term psychological damage that might do to the person in question, and how their friends and family support them.

You won’t have to wait long to find out who the villager that gets attacked is, as these scenes will air next week on ITV.

It’s important to note that this storyline isn’t connected to the racially-motivated attacks on Ethan Anderson and Billy Fletcher that happened recently.

Ethan took on the violent Jordan Greenlow as a client after he was arrested for attacking Billy, but things took a dark turn when Jordan’s wife called him out for his racism, and in retaliation, he cornered Ethan in a subway and shouted more racist abuse while knocking him to the floor.

Thankfully, he was caught in the act by Billy and arrested again, but he’s still hanging around and could cause more trouble in the future.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
