Emmerdale: How did Debbie and Al get together?

A few months ago, Al went to Scotland for a trip and his car broke down.

At the time Charity was desperately trying to track down Kirin Kotecha – Priya’s former stepson.

When Charity learnt Al had broke down in Scotland, she agreed to put him in contact with Debbie, as long as Priya helped Charity find Kirin.

Speaking about how Al and Debbie met, actress Charley Webb told Entertainment Daily and other media: “His car broke down from my understanding. And I think Priya sent him from Charity to talk to me, so she actually ended up setting it up in a round about way.

“But yeah they met in Scotland and she fixed his car for him and he pursues her, basically.”

Speaking about Debbie’s feelings for Al, Charley said: “I think they’ve been seeing each other for a quite while so I do think she has fallen for him quite a lot.

“I think she’s always cautious when it comes to men, so she’s probably not fully, fully in there. But she definitely sees her life with him and Jack’s met him, so yeah I definitely think that she’s involved.

“It’s not just a little bit of fun, it’s a proper relationship and as far as she’s concerned they are together.”

Will Al get caught out?

In tonight’s episode (Tuesday, January 12) Debbie told Al she planned to stay in the village.

But with both Priya and Debbie living in the village will Al get caught out? Or will he be able to get away with cheating?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
