Emmerdale fans couldn't be happier after last night's episode saw Charity Dingle finally tell the world about what the cruel DI Bails did to her

We've known for a while that Charity Dingle had a rough childhood which carried on into her teenage years, but viewers were recently told that she'd actually been kept captive as a sex slave.

Poor Charity, who was just 14-years-old at the time, was kept hostage and sold as a child prostitute by DI Bails, a family friend that she thought she could trust.

Thankfully, she was able to escape - but she's been haunted by Bails ever since.

Bob rushes to the church

Bob desperately hurries away from Laurel to the church in the hope that he can still make it. But will he get there on time? And will Brenda even still want to marry him?

As his campaign with Tracey Metcalfe has picked up speed, Bails has become a friendly face around the village - to all except Charity, who he's paid off to keep quiet about their past.

The deceit has left viewers squirming as the only other character who knows is Charity's girlfriend Vanessa, who has told Charity to keep quiet and try to move on.

Of course, that was never going to happen - and in last night's episode, Charity exploded and revealed to the congregation just what a monster he is.

He'd finished his rousing speech by saying: "Every woman counts," as Charity stepped forward down the aisle and spat: "All women count... Except me, yeah?

"Because I guess if I'd counted for anything then you wouldn't have hurt me, would you?"

He tried to appear soft: "We can get you help," but Charity wasn't having any of it: "That's what you said last time, and then you raped me. Over and over."

Of course, Bails wasn't standing for it and had her forcibly removed by some police officers - but the residents clearly believed what Charity was saying.
