Following a devastating health update, Emmerdale’s Charity Dingle may soon be without a pub.
After taking over from her cousin Chas Dingle, Charity (Emma Atkins) has been trying to relaunch The Woolpack with the help of her son Ryan Stocks (James Moore), partner Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb), and a reluctant Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) (Lucy Pargeter). However, the Emmerdale character may soon be forced to close the pub due to a tragic health diagnosis received by the chef.
In upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, Emmerdale’s Marlon Dingle (Marck Charnock) will suffer a stroke, leaving his family devastated.
Marlon’s week begins on a brighter note as he and his partner Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) rush to propose to each other, according to the soap.
Marlon and Rhona have overcome numerous challenges in their relationship and propose to each other in a romantic moment.
Marlon returns to Smithy Cottage, filled with joy, to retrieve the engagement ring he left there, but his vision is suddenly impaired.
He realizes he’s having a stroke as he falls to the ground and tries desperately to stay conscious.
Marlon is rushed to the hospital and must undergo surgery as a result of his ordeal.
He can’t say the words out loud to ask Rhona to stay by his side because he’s terrified of what’s going on.
Marlon has a long road ahead of him in his recovery, and he will rely on the villagers for help.
Charity is encouraged to make amends with her cousin Chas in upcoming scenes before she regrets it due to their disagreements over The Woolpack.
Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick) also gives Chas some tough love in her feud with Charity, challenging her to be the bigger person.
Chas decides to join her family in The Woolpack after hearing Lydia’s words, and she and Charity get back into their old routine behind the bar.
However, life at the pub struggles to go on without Marlon, and Charity finds herself pleading with Chas to return to the establishment to assist. Will she, however, succeed?
The village pub could be in serious trouble if Chas rejects Charity’s offer.
Could Marlon suffer another health setback while recovering from his stroke, rendering him unable to return to work?
Will Charity be forced to close The Woolpack due to a lack of staff to run the establishment?
Mark Marlon recently opened up about his character on the ITV soap suffering from a stroke.
Mark said to Express.co.uk and other news outlets: “He has a thrombectomy and the clot is dragged out, but that is only the beginning of the story.
“It helps with his facial drooping in the short term, but he still has a long way to go in terms of relearning how to speak and all that.”
It’s all down his right side, so his arm, leg, and mouth are all affected, and he’s having difficulty. He goes through different phases. He’s going through a phase where it’s affecting his speech and ability to properly express himself.”
