SPECULATION has been rife around Gail Loman as she returned to the Dales earlier this year.
Next week, her secret is finally exposed in Emmerdale – could it be harmful to her relationship with Ryan Stocks?
Gail returned to the Yorkshire Dales after four years of absence and rekindled her relationship with Ryan Stocks (James Moore).
After having settled into Emmerdale once again, making a number of appearances in the long-running program, Gail was given a job in the Woolpack kitchen by her boyfriend Ryan, who happens to be the owner of the iconic pub.
Unfortunately for Gail, things didn’t work out for her in the kitchen and she was sacked by Marlon Dingle.
This ultimately led to her bagging another job in the Woolpack as a barmaid.
But while all appears to run smoothly in both her new job and her romance with Ryan, viewers of the Yorkshire-based drama have grown increasingly suspicious of Gail.
Many have come to believe Gail may be too good to be true as she remains shrouded in mystery.
This week, Gail was seen meeting up with a brand new character played by former EastEnders star Martha Cope in the local allotment.
It soon became clear that Gail has been keeping a secret from Ryan and everybody else in the Dales.
Gail then received bad news about somebody called Oscar.
While her secret remained under wraps for months, things are all about to change in scenes airing next week with Gail being forced to be honest about what she’s hiding.
