Emmerdale viewers have been engulfed in Maya Stepney (played by Louisa Clein) grooming Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) for months, as well as the newer storyline of Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) being raped. 

But in upcoming weeks, their attention is going to be turned to Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) and her husband Jimmy King (Nick Miles). 

During today’s This Morning with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, soap expert Sharon Marshall crossed over to a few of the Emmerdale cast who were live on set for an interview. 

And one person who was sitting around the Barton farm’s kitchen table was actress Nicola Wheeler, who plays the newly elected MP for Hotton. 

Those watching at home saw Phillip ask her: “She’s always had her faithful husband by her side Jimmy, so is there happiness for those two?” 

“Ah Jimmy; nice but dim!” Nicola jokingly replied. “Yes, future happiness? We’ve actually just done a story meeting so there is a little bit of shade coming to their relationship. 

“I’m not saying what! [But she’s] not as shady as Cain [Dingle (Jeff Hordley)].” 

Whilst she is hinting at her character not being as corrupt or dangerous as the bad-boy mechanic, Nicola is teasing trouble ahead for the pair. 

Elsewhere in Emmerdale, Lisa Dingle’s (Jane Cox) death is set to divide the Dingle family. 

Fans of the soap recently learnt how the matriarch is dying from a terminal illness and the actress has spoken out about leaving the soap after 23 years. 

Jane said: “I don’t think Lisa has thought about passing on the mantel but I think Lydia (Karen Blick) is a prime person for that.  

“I can see her and Sam (James Hooten) in that role. Lydia has a similar maternal feeling to her character as Lisa, and the actress is wonderful, her and Jim Hooten together are fantastic.” 

She added to Metro.co.uk: “I’d like to see Lydia and Sam more prominent and little Samson is so good, I’ve thought that when I’ve watched it. Lydia has that kind of empathy as a character.” 

Lisa has been thinking about how her family’s lives are going to change once she passes away. 

In particular, viewers are going to see her suggest to her son Cain how he should become the legal guardian of Kyle (Huey Quinn). 

Meanwhile, fans are hoping to see Maya dragged away in handcuffs this week. 

After grooming the school boy for over a year, his family have finally found out about what’s being going on. 

In official spoiler pictures, Maya and David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) are seen having a tense conversation. 

Confronting her, it seems he gets extremely angry, will he do something he regrets? 

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV.
