As we head into summer the sun is shining, the weather is gorgeous and it’s a time for fun, frolics and freedom…

However, in Emmerdale there is deception, revenge and betrayal across the village with more secrets around the corner.

A series of gripping storylines will be at the forefront of the much loved Yorkshire based soap as four of Emmerdale’s female characters take centre stage. 

Kim is still the victim of mind games and as her paranoia continues she sets another trap for her nearest and dearest. Played magnificently by Claire King, Kim feels utterly betrayed by recent events, but will her detective work pay off and will she catch her culprit. Or is Kim in mortal danger?

Manipulative Meena, played by Paige Sandhu, continues to meddle in Jacob and David’s lives. When Jacob, played by Joe Warren Plant, scuppers her plans to move in with David (Matthew Wolfenden), how far will she go to get what she wants?

One of life’s true survivors, Faith, played by Sally Dexter, fears her cancer may have returned. We see her try to bury these concerns rather than face them head on and when a situation is misconstrued how far will she go to keep this secret from her family?

Besotted with her first child Frankie, Tracy, played by Amy Walsh, takes her concerns for the child’s safety too far. Those feelings are taking control of her and she risks alienating those closest to her. Will she seek the help she so desperately needs before things get any worse?

Throughout the Euros football tournament, Emmerdale viewers will be in for an extra treat, as whilst the drama continues to air on ITV, they can binge watch episodes weekly on the ITV Hub. For four weeks during the tournament from Monday 14 June, the episodes airing that week will be available each Monday via the ITV Hub to enable viewers to have the choice of watching as a box set ahead of the ITV transmission.

In amongst this drama also airing across the summer, there is wedding day confusion when Leyla, played by Roxy Shahidi sees Liam’s (Johnny McPhearson) former fiance Bernice, played by Samantha Giles, dressed in her old wedding dress on her actual wedding day. What is Bernice thinking? Surely Liam’s not going to have a change of heart at the last minute?
