ITV viewers were left disgusted with Emmerdale‘s Moira Barton after she attacked her own son Matty.
The alcoholic farmer threw a bottle of wine at her son after he attempted to talk sense into her when she tried to bring Nate Robinson’s mum, Cara, to the village.
She had gone through his old employment application and found the number of his next of kin – mum Cara – and text her to arrange a meeting to expose Nate for what he had done.
But when Nate turned up instead of Cara, Moira realised she had been beaten and wasn’t going to be able to show Nate up.
After her plan backfired spectacularly, her son Matty found her drowning her sorrows.
“Don’t you dare say I told you so,” she said as Matty walked into the kitchen to confront her over what she had done.
Matty told her: “I don’t have to, mum. I ran into Nate in the pub, he told me what happened.
“I can’t leave you alone, someone’s got to stop you making anymore of a fool of yourself. You’re driving everyone away.”
Hurling a bottle of wine at her son, she screamed at him to leave her alone.
“Leave me alone, go on, get out,” she screamed at the terrified shop worker.
Viewers were disgusted at her behaviour and took to Twitter to slam her actions.
