Emmerdale's much-anticipated masquerade ball will open its doors next week as the villagers put on their glad rags for a night many will never forget – but not necessarily for the right reasons. The party will put many of the residents in danger as Kim Tate makes a return to the Dales, but it doesn’t take long before she is pushed down the stairs by a mystery attacker. Whether she lives to tell the tale or not is another matter. Elsewhere, Debbie Dingle is jilted on her surprise wedding day, while Ross is hell-bent on getting revenge on his attacker Simon, leaving Moira terrified about what he will do. What's more, all of this happens in just one day which will be played out throughout the week, adding more suspense as the story unfolds.
