Gail is forced to come clean about her lies (Picture: ITV)
Gail (Rachael Gill-Davis) has been harbouring a secret and it’s about to blow a hole in her relationship with Ryan (James Moore) in Emmerdale – many moons ago she had a secret baby, his baby.
She did not raise said baby, and thus far Ryan has been unaware of his offspring. But that all changes when a woman called Sophie comes and asks Gail to help save young Oscar’s life.
Gail has no choice but to reveal her lies to her beloved boyfriend in order to help the child, and understandably he does not take this news particularly well, having learned he’s been a dad all this time.
It drives a huge wedge between them as Ryan finds himself struggling to look Gail in the eye over her betrayal and he has no desire to interact with their son.
But Gail appeals to his better nature – they need to help Oscar and Ryan can’t argue with wanting to help an innocent little boy.
