Emmerdale to air change in Samson and Josh storyline

Emmerdale reaches a major turning point in Samson Dingle and Josh Cope’s ongoing storyline next week.

The teen schemers have fooled most of the Dingle family over the recent stabbing incident at The Hide, but loyalties start to shift when Lydia witnesses a suspicious conversation.

Next week’s episodes see Samson and Josh bring forward the date for their planned trip around Europe.

When this news reaches Moira, she vows to stop the pair from leaving while her struggling son Matty Barton remains in prison.

Moira rushes into the Dingles’ cottage and makes damning accusations against Samson, pointing out that his motives for leaving the country seem suspicious. She can tell that Samson is trying to escape the fallout from his false accusations against Matty.

Sam is disgusted by Moira’s attitude and once again defends his son, still believing him to be innocent.

Samson reassures Sam that he’ll be back in the village in time for Matty’s trial, so Sam agrees that he can leave with Josh. Moira refuses to let this go and privately vows to thwart their plans.moira dingle, samson, emmerdale

Later in the week, Samson’s stepmum Lydia starts to realise that he might be lying.


Lydia’s unease comes to a head when she witnesses Josh threatening Samson in the middle of the village.

Josh reminds Samson about the importance of maintaining their lies and warns of serious consequences if his friend betrays him.

Lydia observes this and is horrified to find that she may have backed the wrong side in this ongoing dispute.

Swallowing her pride, Lydia meets with Moira. Moira is relieved over this potential breakthrough and begs Lydia to help, but will she be willing to do so?

Emmerdale’s big story for Samson started last month when he was accidentally stabbed during an attempted robbery at The Hide.

With Josh determined to cover up the truth about what happened, he pressured Samson into lying that Matty attacked him deliberately.

Emmerdale airs these scenes in the week commencing Monday, July 8.
