But viewers are a little worried about Charity. Despite her victory, she seemed really down.
As Vanessa spoke of how they could now get on with enjoying the rest of their lives, Charity silently shed a tear.
Of course, it’s not surprise that she would be exhausted and traumatised by the trial – facing her attacker again, dredging up the awful memories of what he did to her; worrying that he would evade justice.
But is there something more troubling her?
Next week, viewers will see that Charity appears to be on a downward spiral, drinking heavily and pushing people away.

Exasperated Chas warns her to sort herself out, while Faith advises her not to throw away what she has with Vanessa.
But we all know that Charity is Queen of self-destruct… and some fans are fearful about what’s to come.

Vanessa keeps going on and on how it’s all over, she got what she wanted, they can have their fairy tale ending blah, blah, blah. Charity breaks down after telling Vanessa to go home. Yes, it’s been dealt will legally but dealing with it internally, another matter. #Emmerdale

I’m so proud of Charity. She found the courage to speak up about the abuse she suffered as a teen & as a result that monster is now facing 30 years in jail. However, something tells me that there’s going to be a new very emotional storyline now for Charity. #Emmerdale
