MONTHS have passed since Gus Malcolms last saw his ex-wife Rhona Goskirk and their relationship is only set to get worse.
Gus returns to Emmerdale and has shocking news to share. Little does Rhona know her husband Marlon Dingle knows everything.Gus Malcolms is back in the village next week[/caption] But he has huge news for his ex-wife Rhona Goskirk[/caption] How will she react to Lucy’s pregnancy?[/caption]
Desperate to have a family with his new bride Lucy, Gus asked Rhona for her consent to use the frozen embryos she had stored during their marriage – which she struggled to accept and, eventually, refused.
However, Gus refused to take heed of Rhona’s concerns and, in recent scenes of the Yorkshire-based drama, her new husband Marlon (portrayed by Mark Charnock) found out Lucy was pregnant.
The mother-to-be and her husband swore a stunned Marlon to secrecy but, in scenes due to be aired next week, the chef struggles to keep Gus’ secret and ends up blurting the news to a shocked Rhona.
Marlon confesses that he found Gus and a pregnant Lucy in hospital while Rhona struggles to process the news.
The following day, Rhona is determined to strike back and taps up Ethan Anderson (Emile John) for some legal advice.
Unfortunately, the solicitor makes it clear that a legal battle with Gus and Lucy would be arduous.
Marlon and Mary Goskirk (Louise Jameson) both manage to convince Rhona to speak to Gus before doing anything else and she arranges to meet him the next day.
When Gus fails to show, Rhona finds herself staking out his house and is aghast to witness him trying to escape with suitcases.
Confronting Gus, Rhona is left in turmoil when a heavily pregnant Lucy emerges.
Back in the village, Marlon and Mary grow increasingly worried about Rhona’s disappearance.
An emotional confrontation in the street between Rhona and Lucy takes a distressing turn when the latter doubles over in pain – her waters have broken.
Rhona finds herself having to drive her to hospital but how will it go?
Could Rhona ever give Gus and Lucy her blessing, despite their underhandedness?
Or could she bring them comeuppance for their actions?
