Zoe is forced to hand the baby back to Charity

Zoe (Leah Bracknell) prepares to flee Emmerdale with the children. But as she is about to hit the road, Scott (Ben Freeman) shows up and is appalled that she was prepared to do a runner with his daughter. Determined to stop her in her tracks, Scott blocks the path of the car.

After some persuasion, Scott eventually manages to convince a tearful Zoe that she will only make matters worse by taking the child away.

Zoe later takes the baby to Holdgate Farm to hand him over herself. She does so calmly, but tears fill her eyes as she watches an elated Charity (Emma Atkins) hold her son. Heartbroken, Zoe walks away, clutching the baby’s blanket to her face for comfort.

Later that day, Tom (Ken Farrington) tells Carl (Tom Lister) that he would really appreciate it if he could find somewhere else to live, now that he and Charity will have the baby. Carl agrees but is clearly preoccupied, and Tom is puzzled by his behaviour.

Elsewhere, Katie (Sammy Winward) struggles to settle back into village life after a furious Donna (Verity Rushworth) makes it clear she is unimpressed when her boyfriend Danny (Cleveland Campbell) offers Katie a room at his house.
