Ethan is arrested after coming clean to Charles about causing Nicky's accident in Emmerdale

Will Charles regret his decision to report his son to the police?


At the hospital, Nicky continues to fight for his life as Caleb keeps vigil by his bedside whilst Ruby struggles with stress.

Meanwhile, Ethan feels guilty as his family praises him ahead of his new job and Charles notices his son's discomfort and worries.

When Ruby confides in Moira about Nicky's condition, they bond despite family tension and Ruby seeks revenge for Nicky's accident, wanting to know who was driving Nicky’s car.

At the hospital, Caleb reconciles with Cain and vows to find the driver.

Seeing that Ethan is struggling with something, Charles guides him into the church for a frank conversation and is blindsided when Ethan admits that he was driving the car when Nicky had his accident. And he's stunned when Ethan reveals that he intends to lie to the police and asks him to give an alibi for his whereabouts the night of the accident.

Later, Ethan’s arrested for Nicky’s accident, devastated to realise that his own father reported him to the police.

Having seen Ethan’s arrest, raging Ruby realises he must have been driving Nicky’s car and Charles begins to regret his decision as he watches his family’s devastation to see Ethan taken away by the police.

Emmerdale continues Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV1
