Is there anyone in Soap Land more unlucky in love than Marlon Dingle? We think not and the poor man looks set for heart break again.
Marlon thought he would never love again after Carly Hope dumped him to run off with her ex-boyfriend but he managed to patch his – already quite damaged heart – back together.
And he met Jessie, current headteacher of Hotten High School. Despite her initially thinking that Marls was in a gay relationship with Paddy Kirk, they’ve managed to get together.
But all that looks set to change next week when Marlon makes a grave error of judgement and and Jessie tells him they’re over before walking out on him.
What has he done that’s so terrible? And is it anything to do with the secret Jessie has been hiding from him?
Emmerdale fans have been in a frenzy of speculation since Jessie revealed to her newly-arrived son Ellis that there was something she hadn’t told Marlon – and would only be telling him if she needed to.
Fans think they’ve worked out the dark secret – and it’s bad news for Belle Dingle.
Obviously not thinking the blonde beauty has been through enough with her ordeal at the hands of killer Lachlan White, they now think that Jessie is after her blood.
Okay, for this one to make sense you need to cast your mind back four years to 2014 when Belle accidentally killed her best friend.
Yeah, that happened.
During a row with BFF Gemma Andrews over Belle getting close to Sean Spicer, Belle shoved Gemma over.
The teen then fell and hit her head, pretty darned hard as she ended up dying later in hospital.
Well Dales fans think that Jessie could be the mum of tragic Gemma who never appeared onscreen as the schoolgirl lived with her dad Dom.
All we know about Gemma’s mum is that she ran out on Gemma and Dom when Gemma was young.
And viewers think she’s in the village with an agenda – to get revenge on Belle for killing her daughter.
“I bet Jessie’s daughter was Gemma and she wants to get revenge on Belle,” predicted one fan
Another concurred adding: “I bet Jessie daughter was the girl belle killed.”
One fan slammed the plot for being too ridiculous after everything Belle has just been through with killer boyfriend Lachlan.
Belle managed to escape the murderer’s clutches in tense scenes last week as he was finally caught and arrested on suspicion of murder.
But Lachlan is still remaining tight-lipped over the fate of his aunt Rebecca White whose body has yet to be found after he appeared to smother her last month.
