Emmerdale reveals full details of shock attack storyline
We now know who the victim is.

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

News emerged recently that one Emmerdale character was going to be subjected to a shocking attack by a gang – and now we know who the unfortunate resident of the Dales will be.

It turns out that it will be Nicola King who will be left in a bad way following the attack, as the soap has shared how the distressing scenes are set to play out.

The drama unfolds when Laurel, Nicola, and Bernice all head out to a bar in an attempt to quash the feud that has developed between the sisters about their rivalry over the council.

Nicola, however, decides that she doesn’t want to stay out all night and chooses to leave the others early.

But that soon proves to be an unwise choice as she is approached by a gang of teenage girls while making her way back to her car.

The situation quickly deteriorates and before Nicola realises, she is being mugged, beaten, and left for dead on the floor.

Waking up in the hospital, Nicola is horrified to remember what happened to her, and she feels worse that it was a group of teenagers that did it to her.

When Jimmy quizzes her, she pretends that she has no idea who it was, only for him to learn that Gabby has found a video of the attack that shows exactly what happened.

Nicola does confide in Harriet and reveals she is terrified that the gang might decide to target her again – especially as they now have her home address after taking her driver’s licence.

Worried that they will hurt her family, Nicola is clearly in a bad way and after she opens up to Jimmy that she thought she was going to die, Jimmy is devastated to see his wife struggling so much.

Will Nicola be able to put the attack behind her, and will the gang target her home next?

Emmerdale airs at the earlier time of 7pm this week on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
