What happened in tonight’s Emmerdale?
Rhona had arranged to meet ex-husband Gus at the Woolpack after finding out he had stolen her passport in order to use her embryo. Rhona had previously told him she wouldn’t consent to him and Lucy having a baby that way.
However, Gus failed to show up and angry Rhona went to his house to confront him. She was furious when she saw him with packed bags about to leave.
As they argued on the driveway, heavily pregnant Lucy came out. She begged Rhona not to take her baby and insisted it was her child now as she was growing and loving it.
Things took a turn when Lucy doubled over in pain and Rhona saw blood on the floor. She rushed Lucy to her car and took her straight to the hospital.
The baby – a girl – was born at just 30 weeks. Lucy was rushed into surgery after some bleeding.
