Alex Moore shows his true colours next week (ITV)

Alex's true intentions exposed

Alex Moore shows his true colours next week, as his secret and twisted plan for the village is exposed.

Spoilers for next week's episode reveal that his big secret is unveiled, and his true and twisted plan for new girlfriend Naomi and the village comes to light.

Alex is actually targeting the village surgery, with he and the mystery woman, Clare, wanting to rob the place.

He's still up to no good it seems as he's on the hunt for the drugs in the surgery, and soon plots his big moment.

Making it clear to Clare that he is using Naomi and isn't really with her, it seems Alex will tamper with the building's electrics as they are vandalised.

Naomi's stepmother is Manpreet Sharma, a doctor at the surgery - so it appears Alex has chosen to target his girlfriend as a means of getting his hands on access to the building.

Stealing Manpreet's keys, he lets himself in armed with a crowbar and is ready to locate the drugs.

But Manpreet soon arrives and notices the door is open, unaware Alex is waiting for her in her office with the crowbar raised ready to attack - so will he hurt her to get what he wants?

Paddy struggles

Paddy will continue to struggle (ITV)

Paddy will continue to struggle on Emmerdale next week, despite making up with Marlon.

Marlon is keen to shelf his birthday celebration plans after the pair fell out, but with a little encouragement from Mandy, Paddy manages to make things right with his friend and rushes over to tell him what he means to him.

The pair soon see the error of their ways, and quickly restore their friendship to normal. Paddy holds Marlon as if he'll never let him go, whilst he is sure that their friendship is the best birthday gift he could ever have after a tough few weeks.

The next day, Paddy is grateful to return to work after Rhona expresses her trust in him, whilst Paddy makes plans to move out. He and Chas have a civil conversation about how they could break the news to Eve that Paddy is moving out.

Liam, clearly worried about how it might affect Paddy if he leaves the village, offers that he can move in with him. Paddy is thrilled by it all but when Bear moves in too unannounced, does Liam regret his offer?

Paddy's struggles continue and his friends are all there to support him through it.
