DAVID Metcalfe has stopped at nothing to keep his business and finances afloat.
But his worries are leading him to lose everything he holds dear, including his relationship next week in Emmerdale.
The shopkeeper portrayed by Matthew Wolfenden crossed a line by making his partner Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) get a ticket for a crime he actually committed.
When he finally comes clean in scenes due to air next week on ITV, Victoria is absolutely furious and threatens to go to the police herself if he doesn't clear up his own mess.
David is left to plead his case in an interview room and hopes he has said enough to the investigating police officer.
Word of David's betrayal gets round quickly as Victoria tells Ryan, Bear and Marlon about it all while in the Hide.
