Last night’s nail-biting double bill of the ITV soap saw Lachlan White (played by Thomas Atkinson) steer Chrissie’s (Louise Marwood) car into an oncoming lorry.
While Lachlan survived the collision, Chrissie and Lawrence (John Bowe) were both killed on the scene while Rebecca (Emily Head) is currently fighting for her life in hospital.
Following the horrific tragedy, the Dales appears to have killed off another fan favourite off-camera.
Adam Barton (Adam Thomas) fled Emmerdale after being charged for Emma Barton’s (Gillian Kearney) murder, but tonight Moira Dingle (Natalie J. Robb) received some devastating news from the police.
A body was discovered on the harbour in Prague, containing a fake passport with Adam’s photo.
After police asked Moira to identify the body, understandably she became hysterical.
“I am not,” she snapped. “It will be Adam. Of course it’s him.”
She cried: “I am not looking at another one of my kids dead. I’m not doing it.”
Holly Barton was killed off in 2016 after the youngster was found lifeless in her bed following an overdose.
At the time, Emmerdale miraculously kept all details of Holly’s death a secret, with the blow coming as a huge shock for viewers.
Following his exit from Emmerdale, actor Adam Thomas was immediately calling for his return on Twitter.
“Dear @emmerdale I know it’s only been a few weeks but am ready to come bk now even if I am a ghost… it’s been done before, (sic),” he wrote.
Emmerdale continues Monday at 7pm on ITV.
