What happened to Marlon in Emmerdale?

Marlon suffered a stroke last month.

He had just got engaged to Rhona in a double proposal when he collapsed unable to see properly or speak.

April found him and rushed him to hospital where it was revealed he had suffered from a huge stroke.

They operated to remove a bleed from his brain.

When he woke up, it was clear he no longer had normal cognitive function and was facing a long road to recovery.

He is struggling to communicate and even things like sitting in a chair leave him tired.

Rhona has vowed to be by his side every step of the way, but the pressure really is beginning to show.

Will they make it through this?

Emmerdale usually airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV, with an hour episode on Thursdays.
