Airs Monday 14th March 2022 at 7.30pm on ITV.

Emmerdale’s newlywed Dawn Fletcher has a reason to be cheerful in Monday’s episode (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

Given the wedding day horror they suffered at the hands of now-jailed serial killer Meena – who kidnapped the couple hoping to kill one of them – Billy and Dawn Fletcher are rock solid. Having been through such an awful ordeal and survived it, still together, they feel invincible.

Dawn’s on cloud nine when Billy asks if he can adopt her son Lucas. It’s a happy moment for the little family – but Dawn’s mind soon starts whirring.

Though she desperately wants the adoption to happen, it’s going to mean getting in touch with Lucas’ dad, her volatile ex Alex. And encounters with Alex never go well.

Messy, much?
