Emmerdale fans will be protesting on Ryan Stock's behalf in next week's episodes when he gets arrested for lashing out at his rapist father DI Balis. Meanwhile, Robert Sugden's life is at risk when he suffers a health scare and collapses, having gone searching for missing Rebecca White.

Whether or not Rebecca's disappearance comes to a conclusion next week is yet to be seen, but one thing's for sure – it will make for gripping viewing.
