Emmerdale is set to be rocked by an epic showdown between Debbie Dingle and her mum Charity as the bedroom drama with Ross Barton is finally exposed on her return to the Dales.

Debbie, played by Charley Webb, has been in France for the last year but she is now set for an explosive comeback.

The actress has revealed the character is set for a "cat fight" between the pair over the soap stud.

Debbie's return to the village airs at 7pm next Tuesday, and it will clash the big reveal over on BBC1 as EastEnders fires up another huge plot line.

Next week's EastEnders episodes will revolve around a shocking "incident" that has been kept under wraps so far.

The new story line will start at the end of the Monday night episode and fans will have to tune in on Tuesday to find out what happens.

But they could be torn between watching the drama in Walford or on the Dales due to the time slot clash.

Emmerdale will be on ITV at 7pm on Tuesday next week, and EastEnders will air at the same time on BBC1.
