ITV Update

A battle of the gossips! Fri, 7.00pm, 4th Feb

PLEASE NOTE All Opinions expressed and any errors in this update are those of the ITV visual updater and not of this site's or necessarily ITV's or Emmerdale's.

Shelly and Turner have been in the police station all night giving their statements. Much to Keysell’s annoyance, Shelly tells him she doesn’t want to press and charges on Steph. He tells her Steph will be released as a consequence, which obviously scares the poor woman.
Charity bumps into Jimmy in the shop (these two are always bumping into each other!) as he buys some painkillers for his hangover. As he leaves, Cain comes in and asks Charity why she hasn’t pushed off yet. She tells him, ‘Not yet, I’ve got some unfinished business.’ Hmm, wonder what that could be, Charity?!
Meanwhile, much to Jimmy’s annoyance, Sadie has contacted Tom to tell him she has made some useful contacts in France. Tom is delighted and tells Jimmy, ‘I knew she would come up trumps, she’s not just s stunning beauty your wife.’
There’s a great Viv moment as Shelly and Turner step out of the cab in the village, Betty sees them first and is stunned while Viv shouts out, ‘Oh my god’, very loudly. She waits for Shelly to give an explanation, but she just apologises. Betty takes much glee in telling Viv that she won’t be hearing anymore as Shelly’s about to enter her house!
Inside, Betty asks Shelly for an explanation and tells her off for causing Turner so much pain. But then she suddenly realises that the second-best gossiper in the village – Viv – is on the loose with the best piece of gossip to hit the village in months! She's out that door in a flash!
Jimmy and Charity bump into each other yet again as he leaves work. Charity says she can’t blame him now that she’s not working in the office any longer, he replies, ‘well, you did add a certain something to the place’. He’s says he’ll see her around, to which she replies, ‘That’s almost inevitable.’ Ooer missus!
Later that night Jimmy calls up a friend to see if he’s free for a drink, but he’s not. Jimmy toys with the idea of calling Charity, but quickly decides against it. It’s only a matter of time though, Jimmy…
Meanwhile, Keysell goes to see Steph to tell her that she is no longer accused of the murder of Shelly. Steph naturally asks why and Keysell explains that he saw her that morning. Steph is obviously shocked to the core and starts playing with the sugar and her cups very weirdly as Keysell looks on with a worried look on his face.
She refuses to accept that Shelly is dead and instead believes its Keysell’s way of trying to get more information about her from Steph. But the detective insists he’s telling the truth, to which Steph plays with the sugar and cups again. Clearly she's a bit disturbed...
Back to the village and Betty has nearly given herself a heart attack as she rushes around telling everybody the news of Shelly's return. Viv asks her why she's so out of breath, to which Betty replies: 'Because I didn't want you getting round with the news before me!'
Viv is the first to tell Ethan, though, who rushes round to Turner’s. Alan tells the curate how grateful he is and that if he hadn’t persuaded Turner to go on television then Shelly wouldn’t be here now.
But Shelly is afraid to go outside and is scared what the village think of her and her deception. She tells Turner that she must leave, but he persuades her not to explaining that he likes having her back and wants her to stay for company. She agrees and tells him she’s happy to be back with him again.
