Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) had evidence which would have, most certainly, freed Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) from prison after his arrest for the murder of Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough).
In tonight's episode, viewers saw Mark Charnock deliver a perfect monologue as Marlon disowned his family - even turfing Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) out of Tall Trees Cottage.
Marlon knows he is contstantly laughed at by everyone and often branded as "stupid" but today was the day that broke the straw from the camel's back.
In The Woolpack, Marlon said he wouldn't be laughed at anymore and it is time people put him first before shocking the pub regulars with his resignation from being the chef.
How will this affect the family dynamics? Only one way to find out and that's watch Emmerdale on ITV/STV.
Emmerdale continues on ITV/STV.
