Emmerdale: Bernice left the village in a taxi
Tonight, Bernice hid out at Laurel’s house unable to show her face to the rest of the village following the mess she had made.
Bob came knocking on the door, furious that Bernice had betrayed his trust and friendship.
Desperate for some help in paying Nicola back, Bernice then went round to visit Gabby.
Gabby couldn’t believe that Bernice had the nerve to ask her for money. She then refused to help her.
With Bernice having no way to pay her back, Nicola set upon going to the police. However, Rodney prevented her from doing so.
Bernice and Nicola then made a deal with each other – Nicola wouldn’t go to the police if Bernice handed her half of the B&B over to her.
With Nicola now taking on Bernice’s debts, Bernice realised that she needed to get away from the village and decided to leave for a fresh start in a taxi.
