Emmerdale's Nicola Blackstock hates the attention lavished
on sister Bernice.
The blonde local has an awkward relationship with her older sibling thanks
to cheating Bernice's affair with her one-time fiance Carlos Diaz.
Although the dust has settled on the devastating incident, Nicola is unwilling
to forgive and forget what Bernice did to her. And her feelings of jealousy
are sparked once again this week, when latest love interest compliments flame-haired
Simon the fishmonger is an unlikely suitor for picky Nicola, but she has grown
very fond of him. After a cosy evening with pals Emily and Paddy, the pair
make their way to Mill Cottage - where Simon meets Bernice for the first time.
Reminded of her previous boyfriend's penchant for the former Woolpack landlady,
Nicola confesses her feelings of insecurity to lovable Simon - who warmly assures
her she has nothing to worry about.
And when Nicola rewards his kindness with a passionate kiss, it seems that
the odd twosome may well have a future together.
