Emmerdale confirms split for Jai Sharma and Laurel Thomas

Emmerdale confirms split for Jai Sharma and Laurel Thomas

Emmerdale has confirmed that Jai Sharma and Laurel Thomas will be splitting up.

The couple go their separate ways in the wake of their recent rows over Amit’s departure and Jai’s betrayal of his half-brother Suni.

Wednesday’s episode (July 3), which is already available to watch early on ITVX, sees Laurel start to lose patience over Jai’s refusal to be honest with his sibling over why Amit left.

When their argument starts to spiral out of control, Jai crosses a line by bitterly insulting Laurel’s late husband Ashley.

Laurel is disgusted by Jai’s cruel words and sends him away, but suddenly becomes unwell and collapses on the floor of the church. As Laurel is taken off in an ambulance, it’s revealed that she may have suffered a heart attack.

In the aftermath next week, Laurel continues to recover in hospital and contemplates a big change ahead for her life, as she has decided to separate from Jai.

Laurel is concerned when she realises that her choice doesn’t seem to have sunk in for Jai, who still seems unusually optimistic over their chances of staying together.

Meanwhile, Laurel’s stepdaughter Gabby is also unhappy when Jai vows to continue living at Mulberry Cottage for a while longer.

 

Jai argues that he’s making this decision for the kids’ benefit and wants to keep the mood light in front of them, but will Laurel and Gabby accept this?

Emmerdale fans saw Jai and Laurel tie the knot in July last year. They’ve been together on and off since 2019.

Jai’s split from Laurel isn’t the only big change coming up for him, as Suni will be leaving the Dales in upcoming episodes.

Last month, it was revealed that Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana and Lewis Cope – who play Suni and his boyfriend Nicky Miligan – had both already filmed their final scenes.
