Emmerdale's Bernice Blackstock goes into hiding in Monday's episode (ITV, 7.30pm, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Recently, Bernice had been acting shifty by taking sneaky phone calls and spending a fortune on the struggling B&B, despite having no customers to pay for it all.

Her business partner Bob Hope was frustrated at Bernice's non-stop spending, with no idea on how she was finding the cash.

However, Bernice's suspicious behaviour has a devastating outcome when her furious brother-in-law Jimmy King discovers enforcement agents have seized their belongings due to a fraudulent twenty grand debt.  

And even worse, the culprit Bernice is on the run!

Meanwhile, Bob is horrified to learn that Bernice has failed to pay suppliers and her daughter Gabby Thomas is disappointed by her mum's abandonment once again.

Jimmy confronts his wife Nicola over her reluctance to report her sister's deception, but she's soon suspicious over Cathy Hope's casual attitude as she tries to find Bernice.

With all the drama going on, Bernice hides out in Brook Cottage, terrified that she will go to prison if Nicola reports her.

However, at the last moment, Bernice stays and admits the reason behind her fraud, but Nicola is adamant that Bernice must make a decision — it's the police or accept her deal.

What will Bernice choose?
