Emmerdale fans were left in tears as Dan Spencer decided to put his daughter Amelia into care.
Dan recently returned to work after his accident. However he had been attempting to hide the fact he’s still in a lot of pain.
This week, Amelia attempted to help her dad at the garage by fitting a car battery. But when the prop which held up the bonnet came down, it hit Amelia’s arm and she fell back.
As Dan tried to help, his back spasmed. When Amelia got up to get Dan’s chair, she fell to the ground unconscious.
Al soon found them both and Marlon discovered what happened to his friend.
Well played Daisy. Good performance and very emotional.
The chef went down to the hospital. Dan revealed to him how bad things had got financially with him having to wait for his benefits and not being able to work properly.
He revealed they couldn’t afford to eat and Dan spoke about having to put Amelia into care, where she could be looked after.
Hearing this, Amelia broke down in tears and begged her dad not to call social services, leaving viewers in tears.

However some have pointed out they aren’t happy with how the storyline has been handled.
Why is this being so badly misrepresented? Whoever researched benefits needs sacking.

Agree, they missed a prime opportunity to shine a light on those challenges without all this unnecessary “oh no Dan, don’t!” stories.

Emmerdale: What’s next for Dan and Amelia?
The soap hasn’t been revealed what’s next for Dan and Amelia.
However viewers have said that Dan calling social services may be a good thing, pointing out it could lead to him and Amelia getting extra support.
Social services could be a good idea. Why haven't they rang Daz or Kerry though? They would help Dan out with his financial worries. Perhaps social services could be the answer in the long term . In the short term they should ask Daz and Kerry to help #Emmerdale
