Emmerdale’s Al exit twist, Harriet breakdown, and Manpreet’s secret past exposed

Emmerdale fans are set to see some major climaxes in a few storylines next week, with plenty of drama pouring out of the Yorkshire village.

Since Christmas, viewers have been waiting for Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) to get some comeuppance, after it was revealed he was cheating on Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) with Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb).

Meanwhile, Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) has been spiralling ever since Malone's death.

And it seems Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) has a huge secret life that nobody in the village knows about.

But new Emmerdale spoilers suggest new vicar Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) could blow her cover.

Al caught out

Debbie and Priya have started working together to take down Al after realising he was two-timing the both of them.

Next week, Priya finishes a series of bank transfers while fighting the urge to blow up at Al.

Later on, Debbie suggests to him that they should get married and, shockingly, he agrees.

But Priya soon steps out from her hiding place and confronts him, with him then realising it was a set-up.

Al tries to make excuses, but they fall on deaf ears.

If that wasn't bad enough, cheating Al goes to the Hop Office and Kim Tate (Claire King) accuses him of stealing thousands from the company accounts.

Debbie then tries to force Al to leave the village for good.

Harriet quits

Charles tells Harriet he has a meeting with the bishop, and she assumes she'll be getting the sack.

He tells her she won't, but Harriet is sick of letting the parishioners down.

She tells him she's quitting, saying it's what's best.

The following day, Charles tries to get Harriet to rethink her decision but she won't budge.

She breaks down in tears as she asks him to tell the Bishop that, despite trying her best, she's done with the church for good.

Later on, Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) tells Charles that Harriet isn't in the right state to make big decisions, saying he should keep trying with her.

Will he follow Moira's advice?

In the village, Charles and Manpreet pass by each other and catch a glimpse of the other, and it's clear both of them are thrown off guard by the encounter.

At The Hide, Manpreet tries to act casual as she asks hubby Rishi (Bhasker Patel) about Charles.

She begins to panic when he tells her he's the new vicar and that he's staying in the village, lodging at Rhona's (Zoe Henry).

Manpreet is left distressed and fakes an illness so she can get Rishi out of the way while she tries to find Charles.

She rushes off leaving Rishi confused.

Over in the church, Charles is still shaken from seeing Manpreet.

She suddenly turns up and Harriet senses some tension so leaves the two of them to it.

Charles address a guilty-looking Manpreet as "Saira", telling her he thought she was dead.

Manpreet begs Charles to keep quiet about their past, but will he agree?

And what is their history, as Manpreet is clearly lying about something, with her past coming back to haunt her.
