Emmerdale newcomer Marshall Hamston (played by Max Fletcher) recently rejected his love interest Arthur Thomas (Alfie Clarke) on the ITV soap. The character is unsure of his sexuality and having a homophobic father has complicated matters for the teenager. On Thursday’s episode of the serial drama, Marshall rejected Cathy Hope (Gabrielle Dowling) but fans are concerned she may become his “stalker”.
Cathy wanted to attend a concert with Marshall but her father Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) was not keen on the idea.
Wendy Posner (Susan Cookson) said: “We thought he was involved with Arthur.”
Cathy snapped back: “So what if he was? God, you are so old – he could be bi-sexual.
“Yeah, you haven’t considered that, have you?”
Cathy told Bob she “didn’t want to be locked away” and he eventually backed down to let her go to the gig.
Meanwhile, Marshall told Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) his father had been confusing him about his sexuality.
Marshall explained: “[My dad] said, ‘How do I know I don’t like girls if I have never kissed one?'”
Laurel, who is looking after Marshall following a fallout with his dad, fumed: “That’s really damaging, I need to go and see him.”
Later on, Marshall plucked up the courage to tell Cathy he had “gone too far” and didn’t want to go on a date with her.
However, when he told her he did not fancy her, she thought he was just “playing hard to get”.
Marshall headed back to Laurel’s house and had a heart-to-heart with Arthur about the situation.
Arthur said: “Just don’t worry about it, everything is going to turn out OK, you can’t help who you are.”
