She’s hiding something (Picture: ITV)
Speculation has been rife over exactly why Gail (Rachael Gill-Davis) arrived in the Emmerdale village.
While she was revealed as a previous love interest of Ryan (James Moore), with who she quickly resumed their relationship, something has felt a bit fishy.
She has so far proven a terrible kitchen assistant to Marlon (Mark Charnock), who’s hit breaking point more than once at her ineptitude, and her generally odd behaviour has raised a few eyebrows.
Is there a big fat secret behind it all? You bet there is.
The first clue was when she grew uncharacteristically snappy at Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and Ryan (James Moore), which turned out to be a particularly painful date for her. But it wasn’t revealed what that day was.
Until that point, the pair had been joying their romance, nipping off for cocktails in the middle of her shift.

But a bombshell could be set to destroy all that. After overcoming what had set her off, the couple are quickly back on track. They head off out to enjoy another romantic meal together and things are going swimmingly until Gail gets a call. She gets cagey – which is red flag number one – and as soon as she gets the opportunity, she ducks away from Ryan to take it.
The mysterious call leads her to meeting a desperate woman named Sophie in an allotment – it’s sounding shadier by the minute.
Sophie comes bearing terrible news – she reveals to Gail something bad about someone named Oscar, and whatever this news means it leaves Gail shaken to the core.
But whoever Oscar is, Gail does not want Ryan to know about him, which rings yet another massive alarm bell. What, or who, is Gail hiding?
There are red flags all over the shop.
