Fly­ing visit

TV Times - - Soaps -

Hang on to your hats: Re­becca’s en­trance is sheer heli for the vil­lagers new mem­ber of the White fam­ily shows up in Emmerdale this week, but her cho­sen mode of trans­port doesn’t go down well with the lo­cals – and es­pe­cially not with big sis­ter Chrissie, who caused the he­li­copter ac­ci­dent last year that killed Val and Ruby.

Re­becca flies in when the vil­lage fete is in full swing. The event is rais­ing money for de­men­tia re­search, and Chrissie hopes it will be good pub­lic­ity for the ad­ven­ture park. Ash­ley gives an in­ter­view about the fund-raiser to the lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion, but his speech is in­ter­rupted by the sound of Re­becca’s chop­per ap­proach­ing.

‘Her en­trance is rather dra­matic,’ re­veals Dales new­comer Emily Head, who played Carli in The

AIn­be­tween­ers and is the daugh­ter of Mer­lin star An­thony Head. ‘It’s not the most well thought-through, given the vil­lage’s past ex­pe­ri­ence, and ev­ery­one is stood there gaz­ing at Re­becca as she steps off in a glam­orous dress and red hat.’

The first thing Re­becca does is to walk up to Robert and slap him on Chrissie’s be­half. Chrissie’s pleased to have some­one fight­ing her cor­ner, but it turns out that Re­becca isn’t quite as loyal as she seems. Robert gets on bet­ter with her than she’s mak­ing out, and he tells Aaron that he plans to use her as a spy. He also urges Re­becca to get a DNA test done, to see if she’s Lawrence’s blood daugh­ter – if she is, that could give him am­mu­ni­tion against Chrissie, who isn’t.

Re­becca later tells her former brother-in-law that she has sent off a DNA sam­ple.

Mean­while, she’s thrown to see how close he and Aaron are, and tries to se­duce him by of­fer­ing him half of ev­ery­thing at Home Farm if she gets it. Robert isn’t in­ter­ested, as he has other plans up his sleeve. What could they be?
