The latest flashforward to the future shows Ashley lying on his side, covered in blood.
Back in the present day, it’s clear that Ashley is struggling ahead of Dotty’s christening. Laurel notices this and offers to postpone the christening today, but Ashley won’t hear of it.
Sadly, it all becomes too much for Ashley at the church and he forgets what’s going on.
Thinking that he’s carrying out the christening for someone else, he tells everyone that he’s forgotten who the parents are. However, Ashley is left devastated when he remembers that he’s actually holding his own daughter and momentarily forgot who she was.
Later, all four of this week’s huge Emmerdale stories come together, resulting in a terrible event.
