They start telling people that they’re off and gear themselves up to tell Charity, Robert and Aaron that they’re planning on taking their kids, Moses and Seb, with them.
But before they get a chance to Robert overhears a conversation that riles him.
It soon looks like Ross and Rebecca’s plan to leave with the kids is shot down in flames when Charity tells Ross that Moses is going nowhere.
Charity, Robert and Aaron all join forces and tell Ross and Bex that they won’t be leaving with Moses and Seb.
As the bad feeling grows Rebecca suggests to Ross that they wait a few months before leaving.
Bex then changes her mind about going at all, wanting to stay until the situation with the kids is sorted.
Ross still wants to go though and is prepared to leave without Rebecca or the kids.
He says some emotional goodbyes to his friends around the village. But will Ross really leave without Rebecca?
Mike Parr who plays Ross announced he was quitting the role he’s played for five years back in May.
The actor, 31, has played the role of Ross Barton since 2013.
He confirmed the news via his official Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Addressing his 204,000 followers, he wrote: “Yes I’ll be leaving the soap soon. Have had the best few years at Emmerdale but it’s time to move on and explore other avenues.”
He joked: “If I win that soap award I might stay though.”
Fans were distraught, with one replying: “Don’t leave!!!!! We want you to find love and get over Debbie!!!!!!!!”
One wrote: “To be honest, they never should have done the acid story line with you. Your character was obviously never gonna be the same again. Which would have been a big shame. I’m gonna miss watching you in Emmerdale. Good luck with whatever you do next.”
