Emmerdale fans are predicting that Sarah Sugden could follow in her own mum Debbie Dingle’s footsteps after her secret love interest was revealed tonight.
The 14-year-old, played by Katie Hill, secretly met up with school friend Danny (Louis Healy) tonight and the pair ended up kissing.
In the coming weeks, Sarah will be spurred on to take part in some reckless behaviour by Danny, including swallowing a pill Danny and Jayden give her.
This is despite the fact that Sarah has a heart condition.
Could Sarah also become pregnant with Danny’s baby?
Her own mum Debbie, played by Charley Webb, was pregnant with Sarah at 15 after having a brief affair with Andy Sugden.
Is time about to repeat itself again?
Viewers watched tonight as Sarah met with Danny, who was waiting in the graveyard.
“I wasn’t sure you’d come,” he said as he greeted her.
“I couldn’t wait to get out of the house,” she replied. “My gran’s in a right mood.”
He asked: “What’s wrong?”
Avoiding revealing that Cain had got his own son kidnapped as a result of his carjacking plan, she replied wryly: “You wouldn’t believe me even if I told you. Bottom line is, she can do some crazy stuff.”
“Yeah, I kind of noticed she was a bit… weird,” Danny said.
“And that was her on her best behaviour,” Sarah replied. “If you saw what she was really like she’d scare you off.”
“No chance,” Danny said. “It’s you I’ve come to see. Not your gran.”
He then leaned in for a kiss… how will Sarah’s mum react when she finds out her daughter is secretly dating?
