Emmerdale - Funniest Scenes!



Debbie takes Chas hostage and points a gun at her.

23rd April 2013: There is worry all round as Zak's gun is missing and Jai explains that he saw Chas and Debbie driving together. At the same time, Chas becomes fearful when Debbie snatches her phone when she goes to call Lisa. Chas tells Debbie to drop her act, but she is genuinely fearful when Debbie gets Zak's gun out of the boot. Debbie forces Chas into the barn and makes her tie herself to a pipe as Chas fears for her life. Soon afterwards, Cain and Charity visit Robbie and Cain threatens him, wanting the truth about Debbie. Cain and Charity then head off in the car, fearful about what she might have done. In the barn, Debbie slaps Chas in the face, wanting a reaction. She then brings a scarf to cover her eyes and Chas is terrified as she hears the shell being inserted into the gun. When Charity and Cain arrive at the barn, Debbie reveals herself, gun in hand. Debbie gets ready to shoot Chas, telling her that she is not untouchable like she thinks. She is calm as she says it would be worth it, no matter what happens to her. However, Cain manages to talk her down.


David Metcalfe 2

David Metcalfe

David Metcalfe is the son of Eric Pollard and Lydia Holloway. Eric knew nothing of David until he arrived in the village in 2006.

David arrived in late 2006 and immediately turned the ladies' heads. He had come to the village to find his biological father, Eric Pollard. Eric had left David's mother before David was born and had also stolen £20,000 from her.

Before revealing his identity, he got a job at the Factory, attempting to find out more about his mystery father. He also struck up a flirty friendship with fun-loving Del and hoped some romance would come of it. David was disappointed when Del mistakenly thought her uncle Zak was his father and distanced herself. The truth then came out, and Eric was stunned to discover that David was claiming to be his son.
