There’s a huge showdown in Emmerdale next week when Ross Barton finally uncovers some of the secrets and lies surrounding his horrific acid attack.
And, although real culprit Debbie Dingle is still safe, Ross discovers that Joe Tate was involved – and becomes hell-bent on revenge.
During dramatic forthcoming scenes, Ross seeks justice when he confronts Joe and the pair become involved in a dramatic showdown – one that might just end differently to how Ross envisioned it, according to actor Ned Porteous.
When Ross discovers that Joe paid Simon to keep his mouth shut, an angry Ross storms over to confront Joe.
In love with Debbie, Joe refuses to reveal the truth and, in doing so, puts his own life in danger…
After a struggle, Ross’ gun DOES go off and someone stumbles to the ground, but who has been shot?
According to Ned, who plays Joe Tate, viewers will be left on the edge of their seats!
In an interview with Radio Times, he says: “We leave it on such a cliffhanger. Hopefully it should get a really good reaction.”
He continued: “It was a fun scene to do, particularly as someone who grew up watching The Deer Hunter.
“I like doing any scene with a high dramatic stake, but especially when Mike Parr is involved, who’s wicked at stuff like that.”

Ned also explains why Joe refuses to reveal the real culprit – Debbie.
“Joe would do anything to keep Debbie out of harm’s way, even when he has a gun pointed at him. He loves her more than he loves himself,” he explains.
While Ned was sworn to secrecy about who walks away unharmed or who is injured, he did give fans a little clue as to what happens, mentioning his popular sidekick Graham.
When asked about Joe taking a bullet, he teased: “Well, luckily, you’ve got the hero that is Graham. If anything bad were to happen, Joe would rely on Graham to save the day!”
Hmmm, but could he have saved the day for Joe at a huge cost to himself?
