It’s been heartbreak after heartbreak for Emmerdale favourite Ross Barton – and things aren’t looking any brighter just yet.
In fact, it’s about to get a lot worse.
This week, Ross arrived in court to face the man who threw acid in his face. But was left devastated when the accused, Simon McManus, walked away a free man.
Vowing to get his own rough justice, viewers saw Ross track down his attacker at his last-known address and break in.

But, things weren’t going to be as simple as bashing Simon up and walking away.
In fact, Ross has walked into more heartache without realising it…
Armed with a crowbar, a furious Ross came across a junkie mum called Dawn, a sex worker who takes drugs to escape her miserable life.
Realising she’s in a bad place and withdrawing from drug addiction, he took pity on her, left her his pills to help her and walked away.

However, a sinister thug soon appeared at the house and discovered the pills – which link Ross to the house.
He asked her: “What happened to the door? And what happened to you? You’re supposed to be working.”

When she explained Ross had come looking for Simon, she said: “His number – he lives in Emmerdale, that’s all I know. Now please, just leave me alone.”
To which he replied: “Aye, no use to anybody now, are you? Thanks to this Ross, he’s cost me a lot of money today.”
Now Ross has crossed the path of another dangerous criminal, who looks set to come after him.
It’s clear that Ross has a lot to worry about.
