Emmerdale characters Manpreet and Charles fell from a bridge and into a river in tonight’s episode (Monday, October 18), but are they dead?

In tonight’s scenes, the survival challenge kicked off with Meena, Manpreet, Charles, Andrea, David, Victoria, Charity and Mackenzie all taking part.

Last week viewers saw Meena damage Victoria’s harness after overhearing her boyfriend David confess to Vic that he’s in love with her and wants to be with her.

But tonight, she was horrified when her sister Manpreet took the damaged harness to get climb down a rock face. Luckily Manpreet managed to get down without any issues.

However later in the episode Charles and Manpreet were crossing a rope bridge together. Soon David and Victoria came onto the bridge to cross over.

Charles turned around and told them there should only be two people on the bridge at a time and Victoria said: “What’s the worse that could happen?”

A few seconds later, the bridge broke sending Manpreet and Charles falling down into the river below.

But are they dead? Will they survive the dangerous, rocky river?

“But the thing is, swimming doesn’t really come into it when there’s 15 tons of water!

“At one point we were attached to a rope and towed by a power boat and that was interesting. There was no swimming involved there, just clinging on for dear life.”
