Emmerdale lines up a number of shocks and surprises for audiences next week, with a big death on the cards too.
The grand opening of the B&B arrives but Bernice Blackstock’s (Samantha Giles) attention is elsewhere, given that she fancies the harpist she’s booked for the big day.
Things, however, take a harrowing turn when, during the opening, Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) informs her that the harpist is dead in bed!
Arthur Thomas (Alfie Clarke), manwhile, is left feeling rejected once more when Marshall Hamston (Max Fletcher) reiterates that they can’t be friends, while Sam Dingle (James Hooton) injures Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) during a scuffle.
Elsewhere, Nicky (Lewis Cope) brushes off Gabby Thomas’ (Rosie Bentham) advances, so she asks him to zip her up in her dress.
For an in-depth look at what next week’s (February 20 to 24) Emmerdale has to offer, you’ve come to the right place, as Metro.co.uk serves up your weekly episode guide, revealing all-things Dales-related.

Sam, meanwhile, is determined to support Esther, but he’s struggling to make ends meet as it is. The long serving mainstay distracts Eric in the shop, before fleeing with some baby stuff. Eric, however, gives chase, and ends up tripping over, hitting his head off the pavement.
