Emmerdale fans moan soap has 'gone full Hollyoaks' after flash-forward glimpse
Emmerdale viewers were left feeling rather confused on Friday evening after they got a glimpse at flash-forward week.
ITV have been teasing for a while now that the week beginning May 9 will be full of drama and have even hinted that someone may die.
At the end of Friday's episode, the flash-forward scenes began as soap fans got a taster of what is to come.
As well as Cain Dingle saying something threatening to a mystery person, who could be Al Chapman, his mother Faith was seen receiving what appeared to be an urgent phone call.
In the flash-forward scene, Faith is heard saying: "You don't just get to rock up and tell me what to do because I won't do it, I can't do it okay? Just leave me alone," but fans have no idea who she is speaking to.
Another glimpse sees Gabby Thomas looking panicked as she shouts: "If you're here Jamie, I'm not scared!" referring to Jamie Tate.
The future scenes were accompanied by some very dramatic music, but some viewers tuning in at home were not overly impressed and took to Twitter to comment.
"What on earth was that all about # Emmerdale," one viewer asked.
Another tweeted: "Okay what was with the dramatic music and everything there? #Emmerdale."
A third viewer posted: "Gone full Hollyoaks #Emmerdale," while another said: "God this is embarrassing #emmerdale."
Someone else added: "After the sort of previews at the end of tonight next week better be spectacular and not a let down #Emmerdale."
One more person joked: "What in the ITV 9pm drama is going on here? #Emmerdale."
But other viewers were really excited about next week's episode, with one person writing: "Liking these future glimpses, good angle #emmerdale."
Another tweeted: "I'm so excited for the flash forward scenes next week #Emmerdale."
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode on Thursdays.
