Charity soon turns to Cain (Jeff Hordley) who pushed Debbie to come clean, admitting that she has no the choice.
However, fans of the ITV soap have predicted Joe will soon begin chasing another lady of the Dales, Robert Sugden’s (Ryan Hawley) sister, Victoria (Isabel Hodgins).
Last night saw Robert confront Joe after he called the police on Rebecca White (Emily Head).
However, while Robert and Joe came to blows, viewers thought they noticed sparks flying.
“I think Victoria and Joe would make a nice couple,” enthused one fan.
Another agreed: “Would love Joe to get with Vic to wind Rob up haha.”
One more asked: “Anyone else see a little spark between Vic and Joe?”
The excitement comes after Victoria’s husband Adam Barton (Adam Thomas) fled the country after being framed for Emma Barton’s (Gillian Kearney) murder.
Though, with Joe playing games with Debbie, will he have room to swoon Victoria as well?
What’s more, Claire King – who starred as villain Kim Tate – teased there could be more drama in store for Joe.
When asked what would happen if Kim and Joe came face-to-face again, Claire spilled all to OK! Online.
“Well he’d probably say a lot to her, after all, she’d whacked his father over the head with a paper weight and scarpered in a helicopter,” she said.
“And she practically killed his grandad so there’d be plenty to say on his part.”
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
