A happy couple in Emmerdale, nope, not when the mother is Sandra who far from actually being a caring mother seems hell bent on causing trouble next week.

Sandra’s mind whirs when she sees Vinny and Gabby acting playfully together. Later that day, Sandra plants seeds of doubt in Liv’s head as she questions her asexuality and the issues it might cause in her marriage.

Sandra raises doubts over Gabby and Vinny’s relationship.

With Sandra getting in her head, Liv eyes Vinny and Gabby as they talk. Sandra’s pleased when the interaction seems to fuel Liv’s doubts.

The next day, Gabby’s surprised when Sandra mentions that Liv and Vinny are having issues. Sandra’s thrilled her plan’s working when Gabby offers to speak to Vinny.

Back at Mill Cottage, Liv’s thrown when Gabby comes over to speak to Vinny. Sandra uses the opportunity to drip poison and questions Gabby’s true intentions with Vinny.

She’s pleased when she sees a flicker of unease from Liv.
