Emmerdale viewers brand Samson Dingle a 'brat' as he lashes out at Lydia for her past

Lydia's real name is Jenny Finn

Emmerdale viewers have branded Samson Dingle a 'brat' after he lashed out at his father's fiancée Lydia Hart after finding out her past.

In last night's episodes of Emmerdale (August 13 2019) Samson returned from his trip to France.

Samson has been gone for over a month and during his time away, a huge secret about Lydia came out.

A baby's remains were found in the grounds of Hotten Academy and the police soon revealed they were looking for a woman named Jenny Finn.

After hearing about the discovery, Lydia went to the police station and confessed she was Jenny Finn.

She revealed to Sam that when she was 15 she got pregnant with a boy in her maths class.

She feared her baby would be taken away from her as she was young and living in care, so she kept her pregnancy a secret.

She revealed she gave birth at her care home on the top floor bathroom, but her son was born sleeping.

She wrapped him up and snuck him out of the house, deciding to bury him in a woodland area.

She ran away to Scarborough and met a woman named Lydia Hart who lived in the bedsit above her.

When Lydia died, Jenny found her birth certificate and took Lydia's identity.

Samson returned in Tuesday night's episodes and Sam and Lydia decided to tell him about what happened. He didn't react well to the news.

Samson said Lydia had been lying to them. Lydia tried to be understanding and said she knew it was a lot to take in, but Samson said some harsh words.

He said: "You would say that wouldn't you? 'Cause you're the one with the dead baby."

Sam was quick to point out Lydia had treated Samson as if he was her own but he stormed off saying his real mum was dead like Lisa and Lydia's baby.
