Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) surprises herself in Emmerdale next week, as she admits that she is ready to find love once more.
The long-serving mainstay was in a long-term relationship with Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson), but the couple went their separate ways after the truth about Jai’s scheming was exposed.
Jai promised he’d turned over a new leaf, and subsequently went out of his way to make amends with Laurel. Laurel made note of the lengths he went too, and soon enough passion ensued between the two.
The pair were ready to give things another go, but a series of unfortunate events led to them separating once more.
Drugs were found in Take A Vow, where Jai had been sitting previously. He was adamant that the drugs were not his.
Laurel, however, refused to believe him, and the two exchanged some harsh words, resulting in their relationship coming to an end.
Next week, she resolves to move on, and even surprises herself as she admits to her loved ones that she’s ready for a new relationship.
The question is: will love blossom?
Only time will tell, we guess.
In the meantime, Laurel does her best to reunite Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) and Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles), who are currently at each other’s throats.
One to watch: Tuesday June 14 at 7:30pm on ITV.
