Following some disappointing news, Emmerdale businessman Jai Sharma fears for his future next week.
After a Health and Safety inspection was conducted over the Hawskford Outdoor Pursuits center, Jai has been waiting for an important update.
The HOP was involved in controversy late last year after a series of mishaps during a survival adventure task. This was depicted on screen in ITV’s Super Soap Week, concluding in Andrea Tate’s death (Anna Nightingale).
Jai tried to deal with the matter by blaming Ben Tucker (Simon Lennon) for everything at first, but his short-term tactic failed to keep the company out of danger.
In the next episodes, Jai and Kim Tate (Claire King) are both taken aback when they get a fine from Health and Safety that is considerably more than they expected.
Jai attempts to put on a brave front, but he’s not sure how he’ll be able to keep his business viable after this setback.
Jai grows desperate and submits a loan application in secret.
Unfortunately, Jai’s application is turned down, and he has no idea what to do next. Is he in for a rough start in 2022?
Chris Bisson, who plays Jai, recently cautioned that if things continue to go wrong for him, his character’s nasty side may emerge.
Chris addressed this late last year: “He is in a little different situation now that he is the majority shareholder at the HOP. Kim was able to transfer some shares to Gabby just in time to avoid a serious disaster.
“It is entirely up to Jai to find a solution. In the end, he’s always been ruthless in business and sometimes in love, so he’s due for a run. For a long time, he’s been pleasant.
“He needed redeeming after his escapades with cocaine and Rachel. He went to the edge of whether people could like him any more. We’ve probably bought him back far enough to see he’s a good person and a good dad, but when it comes to business, he’ll do what he has to do to protect his family.”
