Emmerdale spoilers: Monday 30 July - Friday 3 August

This week on Emmerdale, the drama is really kicking off as Samson Dingle accidentally pushes Lydia Hart down the stairs, resulting in a trip to the hospital. Why was he so angry with her?

A troubled Graham Foster becomes drunk and disorderly, haunted by his own memories and mistakes, and a fight breaks out between him and a close friend.

Elsewhere, Pete Barton is suspicious of Ross Barton and what he's up to, searching the garage to find any evidence of stolen cars. But when the police arrive, what are they to do? Is Ross' time finally up?

Bob Hope and Brenda Walker have a serious chat about the cafe, and a crucial decision is made regarding the future of the business. Later, Laurel Thomas is humiliated that she wasn't made aware of the change in situation and is upset at the news.

On a more positive note, we're crossing our fingers that RobRon will soon be engaged! Aaron Dingle wants to propose to Robert Sugden, but he might be in need of a helping hand from Liv Flaherty and Chas Dingle to pull it off. Chas and Paddy Kirk also have a discussion about the imminent birth of their child together, and make a very exciting decision about who the godparents are likely to be.
