There's a huge surprise on the cards for Emmerdale's Lydia Hart...
Next week’s Emmerdale sees Lydia Hart’s world turned upside down when she comes face-to-face with Agatha Finn… the mother she had been told was dead.
After Lydia managed to track down her sister, Beth, last week, it seemed that she would finally get some answers about the large sum of money that has been put into her bank account.
But instead of getting the chance to thank her estranged mother, Lydia was heartbroken when Beth cruelly told her that she was too late because their mum died three weeks earlier.
However, viewers will know that Agatha is in fact alive and well… something that Lydia is about to find out herself next week.
Mandy Dingle is still righting her wrongs after she tried stealing the cash from Lydia’s bank account, and next week goes back to Beth’s house to get some more answers.
Once there, she barges her way into the house where she is stunned to find Lydia’s mum alive and kicking.
As the truth about Beth’s lies are revealed, Agatha begs Mandy to take her to Emmerdale so she can see Lydia for herself. But once there, it soon becomes clear that Agatha has got some explaining to do.
As Lydia braces herself as she faces delving back into her past, but nothing can prepare her for the bombshell her mum is about to drop.
Lydia is stunned when Agatha reveals Lydia’s dad died from Huntington’s Disease and that she could well have inherited the same thing.
Shellshocked at the thought she could have been living with this illness and not even realised, Lydia prepares herself to tell the news to the rest of the Dingles.
But will Lydia have the tests to find out if she has Huntington’s? Or will she decide to remain oblivious to her fate?
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
