Since the terrible incident, Ross' life has unravelled with him getting hooked on drugs and - at one point - even dealing himself.

Taking to Twitter, one fan said: "If Ross dies from a smack overdose I will be so mad."

Another said: "I really want Ross and Rebecca to live happily ever after, not Ross die of an overdose the [bleep]."

A third agreed, typing: "Why do I get the horrible feeling Ross' exit will involve an overdose? #Emmerdale."
