Faith forced to deal with breast cancer diagnosis alone in Emmerdale

How long can she keep lying for?


Dreading her treatment, a daunted Faith arrives at her chemotherapy appointment and the gulf between her and an absent Cain appears all the more painful when she sees another patient’s relationship with their son.



Painting a picture of familial harmony to another patient at the hospital, Faith lies about Chas and Cain’s whereabouts, unaware that a hovering Wendy has heard everything.



Although embarrassed to have been caught out, Wendy reassures her that she finds herself doing the same with Lee.



When Chas finds a half-naked Nate chatting to Moira, she's suspicious and doesn't buy Moira’s innocent explanation, becoming convinced that she’s walked in on the resumption of their affair.


As Moira continues to cover for Faith, Chas overhears her on the phone arranging to meet someone in her empty house and her suspicions increase. Convinced that her mum’s helping Moira rekindle her relationship with Nate, Chas resolves to catch the pair in the act.


The next day, when Chas discovers Moira dressed in her robe, she bursts into the bedroom but is stunned to find Faith inside as opposed to Nate.



Desperately hiding her illness, Faith stuns both Moira and Chas when she flounders and explains Moira’s state of undress.


Uncomfortable to see how much her lies have escalated, Faith’s awkward as she hides her symptoms from her family and is forced to deal with the emotional implications of her diagnosis alone.


Emmerdale continues Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV
