His girlfriend only died at Meena Jutla‘s hands seven weeks ago, yet he already seems to be smitten with former partner Manpreet Sharma.
The pair confessed their love for each other last night (Tuesday, December 7). Even though Charles told Manpreet it was too soon for them to actually be together, fans were still pretty horrified at the move.
What happened between Charles and Manpreet in Emmerdale?
After Manpreet gave counsel to Ethan, a grateful Charles invited her for a walk. When he then offered to share his flask of tea, Manpreet took that to mean something more and leaned in to kiss him.
Although Charles pulled away, he later told her: “We can’t afford to trust our feelings at the moment, no matter how powerful they are.
“I feel like I’m on some sort of rollercoaster and the more I try to get off I can’t.”
Manpreet apologised and said it wouldn’t happen again, but Charles called her back.
“You know I’ve still got feelings for you, I admitted it the day she died. Manpreet I never stopped loving you.”
He added: “I’m in love with you. I always have been.”
Charles then told her he wanted to do things properly this time round and they needed to be honest.
“No surprises and no more secrets” was what they agreed. But of course, Manpreet is keeping a huge whooper of a secret: that Meena texted Ethan pretending to be his mum. Will she confess everything ahead of their fresh start?
Why were fans horrified by Charles in Emmerdale?
With Andrea barely cold in the ground, viewers are pretty disgusted that he would confess his love to someone else so soon.
Charles sure as hell got over Andrea quick #Emmerdale

Charles got over Andrea quick. I’d want someone to mourn me for atleast 50 years before considering moving on 😂 #Emmerdale
