Emmerdale next week: Charity in danger, Laurel heartache and Marlon stroke nightmare

The villagers of Emmerdale are in for a big next week on the soap, as the community reels from Marlon Dingle’s shock health battle and grieving families prepare for Meena Jutla’s trial.

Fan favourite Marlon suffered a stroke in devastating scenes on the ITV soap, which left his daughter April and fiancée Rhona fearing the worst.

Next week on Emmerdale, both he and partner Rhona find it difficult to navigate the world after the incident, with his best friend Paddy also clearly not coping.

Meanwhile, Emmerdale's Charity Dingle might want to watch out next week on the ITV soap, as Moira Dingle takes revenge.

Elsewhere, a tough decision looms for Emmerdale’s Laurel Thomas as she faces further heartache in her relationship with Jai Sharma.
