Emmerdale’s Sam Dingle dealt devastating blow after Eric Pollard accident



Over the past few weeks, Emmerdale fans have seen Sam Dingle (played by James Hooton) and Lydia (Karen Blick) continue to struggle with money. In scenes set to air next week, it looks as though penniless Sam will be faced with yet another devastating blow after trying to help his granddaughter Esther.

Recently in the soap, viewers have seen Sam’s young son struggle with becoming a father himself after Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) gave birth to their baby in the 50th-anniversary storm.

However, Samson (Sam Hall) has made it abundantly clear he wants nothing to do with baby Esther and even went to extreme lengths to try and get her removed from Amelia’s care.

Although Sam shares other views with his son as he wants to help support the young mother and his granddaughter.

Last week, he tried to take matters into his own hands in a bid to aid the baby and tried to steal some necessities from the shop

However, many viewers have slammed Sam’s poverty storyline with many saying it’s ridiculous.

Timbogee999 said: “This living crisis storyline is ridiculous, Sam and Lydia both work, Zak will get his pension, they live in a house with no mortgage or rent. And if it was so bad why are they always in the pub, cafe or the hide, every episode there is one of them.”

Triplec55 added: “This poverty plea would be much more believable if they didn’t have what seems like every meal and every drink, every day, in either the cafe or the Hide. If you were struggling for money wouldn’t you shop cheaply and eat at home like the rest of the nation?”

With aldismaldi commenting: “Sam literally bought a sausage butty in the cafe whilst saying he was skint. Asks Cain for cash who had just paid for their boiler.”

Elsewhere in the soap, fans will see Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) continue to battle with his mental health following the breakdown of his marriage to Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter).

After fleeing the village, his family and friends have been left concerned for his well-being, however, he’s soon set to make a comeback.

Although his return is bittersweet as unbeknownst to them, Paddy has gone back to say goodbye as he plans to take his own life.

Speaking about the storyline, actor Dominic revealed although his character will accept help, it won’t be the end of his struggles, he said: “‘I don’t think they’re going to just drop it and move on.

“It’s going to be an ongoing thing, quite a bit of it on camera involving other people from the village, some people out of the village.

“Some people get very very embarrassed in these situations and they don’t want to speak to friends but they will go and speak to somebody else that they don’t know.

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
