Chas Dingle is set to struggle with grief on the anniversary of her daughter Grace’s death in an upcoming episode of Emmerdale.
But things are set to take a turn for the worst when a mysterious man named ‘Simon’ introduces himself to her at the Woolpack.
Viewers of the soap will recognise ‘Simon’ as Harry, a criminal who left Caleb with several broken ribs after he refused to let him hide guns at his car business.
In the scenes, Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) speaks about how life has moved on as they visit Grace’s grave, but Chas (Lucy Pargeter) is left in torment as she still feels stuck in the past.
She asks Paddy for a drink but is left feeling rejected and very alone when he decides to go for lunch with Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) instead.

Later that day, she meets Harry (Robert Beck) – who mysteriously introduces himself to her as ‘Simon – and the pair have a drink together and bond over their later children.
Chas then brings ‘Simon’ home with her but quickly admits it was a mistake and Simon agrees to sleep on the sofa.
However, ‘Simon’ then searches the house and coldly looks at a photo of her and Caleb (William Ash) as his intentions remain unclear.
The next morning, an unimpressed Paddy catches ‘Simon’ leaving the Woolpack, but Chas refuses to talk about it.
Paddy later tells Chas that Eve wants to live with him and Chas then leaves the house and calls ‘Simon’, with tears streaming down her face.
It comes after outraged Emmerdale fans branded Chas a ‘nosey cow’ after she ordered Mackenzie Boyd to leave the village.
Earlier in Wednesday’s episode, Mackenzie proposed to Chloe Harris for the second time, after learning that she wasn’t pregnant with their second child.
What neither of them are aware of however, is that Charity is holding onto the damning secret that she had an affair with Mack.

Coming clean about her pregnancy, Chloe told Mack that she was worried he wouldn’t want to marry her anymore.
‘I knew that there was a chance you wouldn’t be pregnant. I’m sorry that I got so carried away with it all,’ Mack told her. ‘I’m so sorry, I’ve made it so much worse.’
Mack then surprised Chloe by popping the question for the second time, this time with a new engagement ring.
Without hesitation, Chloe agreed and the two quickly began celebrating their news and telling friends and family.
However the happy news was not received well by all, as Chas pulled Mack aside after finding out.
Chas expressed her anger that Mack hadn’t even finalised his divorce from Charity before proposing to someone else.
‘How do you think [Charity] is going to take this news? How do you think she’s going to feel about it?’ Chas asked.
When Mack insisted it was time for Charity to ‘move on’, Chas chuckled and reminded him about their fling only a few weeks ago.
‘Charity will never move on whilst you’re giving her mixed signals,’ Chas insisted. ‘You know what she’s like, this will eat away at her.’
She then warned him: ‘The thing about mistakes, and take this from me, is that they have a habit of catching up with you.’
Chas then encouraged Mack to leave the village with Chloe while he still could, warning that it was only a matter of time before Charity took her revenge.
And taking to X, formerly known as Twitter to share their reaction, fans blasted Chas and told her to ‘mind her own business’.

One wrote: ‘Stop throwing Chas into other people’s storylines. For once, Mack is telling the truth. It’s none of their business. Nobody likes her and nobody cares about her. Just get rid of her now.’
‘I hope the next time Chas says to someone “Can I have a word?”, they say “No, now bugger off you nosey cow”, another said.
A third added: ‘Having a long hard think about it, Chloe actually isn’t that bad. Shes boring but nothing much else. Mack on the other hand, cheats on Charity, gets this other woman pregnant, gets together with her before cheating on her and is now acting like a great family man.
A fourth said: ‘What the actual f*ck has it got to do with Chas, keep your false features out of it’.
