Emmerdale’s Rishi Sharma (played by Bhasker Patel) has not had the best start to the year after his estranged wife Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) began a romance with Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin). Not only has Rishi had to deal with heartbreak, but he almost lost his daughter Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) after she relapsed into an eating disorder after being burnt in the maze fire last year. His son, Jai (Chris Bisson) has also moved back in with his dad after his relationship with Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) broke down.
Despite Manpreet moving on with Charles, Rishi has still kept a watchful eye on his ex after Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) almost tried to kill her.
It is clear that Rishi still holds a torch for Manpreet after he managed to locate the doctor when she went missing.
During Thursday’s double bill, Manpreet had a breakdown and went for a walk on her own in the woods.
The episode concluded with the doctor leaving her phone in the car and walking into the woods at night.
Despite Charles sending out a search party, no one was able to locate Manpreet.
On Friday’s instalment, Priya sent Charles home and told him she would continue to look for the GP in the woods.
However, when she went home to take a shower, she began to worry about her dad, who had begun to drink.
Rishi aired his concerns to his daughter about Manpreet, he said: “Where on earth can she be?”
“I have no idea, Dad?” Priya replied. “I have searched everywhere. All the surrounding areas and no sign of her.”
Rishi continued: “Charles said you found her car in some woods up a dirt track, that’s odd and she left her phone behind. Come on, she would never do that.
“She would never leave home without her phone, you know what she was like when she lived here. Nothing makes sense.”
“Maybe she ran out of petrol,” Priya suggested before her dad hit back: “Then she would have phoned someone, not just wander off.”
Reflecting on the pressure Manpreet felt over Meena’s court case, Rishi added: “That evil, evil girl – and to think I let her into this house.”
“Manpreet didn’t want her to stay here,” Rishi fumed as he poured himself a drink.
Airing her concern about her dad’s health, Priya said: “Dad, do you really think you should be drinking that?”
“Probably not, but I don’t care anymore,” Rishi replied in defeat.
“Just have the one please, Dad,” Priya pleaded with a worried look on her face.
As Rishi stood at the window drinking, he could see Manpreet walking into this garden.
The duo then had a heart to heart about why Manpreet didn’t go home the previous night.
She told Rishi she had a panic attack in the church, and then another when she was out driving.
Poor Rishi looked heartbroken after he told Manpreet Charles was on his way to her.
Priya is clearly concerned about her dad’s health, but could Rishi be hiding a secret illness that no one knows about?
With his ex being a doctor, could Manpreet know anything about it?
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7.30pm on ITV.
