Lit­tle shop of HOR­RORS

David’s STORE IS UN­DER SIEGE WHEN Ja­cob’s VI­CIOUS FRIENDS ROB IT, LEAV­ING POL­LARD’S LIFE IN JEOP­ARDY AND Dan SUB­JECTED TO A TER­ROR CAM­PAIGN!

Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

Wor­ried about a teenage Ja­cob’s wel­fare, David is quick to ban­ish his adop­tive son’s trou­ble­mak­ing friends Josh and Jamie from the shop when they show up unan­nounced, and is grate­ful when cus­tomer Dan (Liam Fox) backs him up. How­ever, both are un­aware that the boys have stolen a copy of Tracy’s erotic novel and are taunt­ing Ja­cob (JoeWar­ren Plant) with his step­mother’s racy lit­er­ary ef­forts. Push­ing Ja­cob to lose his tem­per, Josh and Jamie shove him in a bin near the shop be­fore don­ning bal­a­clavas and burst­ing in­side with base­ball bats to force a trem­bling Pol­lard (Chris Chit­tell) to empty the cash reg­is­ter!

Un­aware that Dan is cow­er­ing in the shad­ows paral­ysed with fear, the teens force Pol­lard to open the safe. In­stead, Pol­lard bravely pushes one of the boys, only to be beaten with the bat! Dur­ing the scuf­fle, Pol­lard un­masks Josh and Dan sees his face as he and Jamie es­cape! Rush­ing to Pol­lard’s aid, Dan calls an am­bu­lance when he slumps to the floor against the shop counter.

With Pol­lard treated and rushed to hos­pi­tal, Dan’s guilt at not be­ing able to help him is for­got­ten when Josh and Jamie threaten him not to re­veal their iden­ti­ties to the po­lice. Poor Dan is con­flicted as he’s pres­sured from all sides with the teens slash­ing his camper­van tyres, de­fac­ing his house with graf­fiti and men­ac­ing his daugh­ter Amelia, be­fore hold­ing Dan at knife­point! He frets that if he isn’t hon­est with the po­lice, his and Pol­lard’s lives won’t be worth liv­ing.

Ban­dits at­tack Pol­lard (Chris Chit­tell)! EM­MERDALE DOU­BLE EPISODES WEEK­NIGHTS AT 6.20PM & 6.50PM ON UKTV
