In next week's Emmerdale spoilers events turn potentially deadly as the brakes of Al’s car are cut. Plus Cain becomes Chas’s number one enemy. And Meena’s trinket box rises to the surface.
It’s your spoiler-filled guide to Emmerdale in the week of 17-21 January 2022.
Al is under huge pressure
Chas and Marlon find out that their insurance claim is void as they didn’t mention the development plan. So, feeling that she’s running out of options, Chas opts to sign the papers that Al has drafted.
However, what they don’t yet know is that Gavin has ordered Al to offer them less money. But when Chas later notices the £20,000 discrepancy, Cain tears up the contract.
Gavin then demands that Al get things done and dusted – he has two days to acquire those signatures or there’ll be big trouble.

Later in the week, Chas will be seen asking Al that, should she eventually put pen to paper, he must fix his feud with Cain. Al agrees, but just when it looks as though animosities will be ended, there’s a further surprise…
Deadly car sabotage
Someone is obviously tiring of Al’s presence in the village as a clandestine figure is surreptitiously cutting the brakes of his car with obvious expertise.
When Al then offers to give Kerry and Kyle a lift into town, Cain tries to stop them from getting into the leaking vehicle. But is he the one responsible for the sabotage?
Chas disowns Cain
Meanwhile, Mackenzie manages to steal Al’s phone and, after breaking into it, discovers a series of incriminatory messages sent by Gavin.
Both Mackenzie and Cain then meet up with Gavin who, after having had the frighteners put on him, ends up pulling out of the property deal. Following the announcement, Al pleads with Gavin to reconsider, but he's adamant and demands all the money back.
With the deal having fallen through, Chas is left furious with her brother Cain and blames him for ruining everything. Fans will then see Chas disowning Cain, who is left feeling ostracised from the rest of the Dingles.
Meena’s trinket box is revealed
Leyla and Jacob are surveying the damage done to the allotment but fail to notice that Meena’s trinket box is now partially visible.
Later on, as Sam works on the patch, he inadvertently shovels some dirt across the box. So will it once again be obscured from view and buried in the earth?
Dawn and Billy’s bust-up
For about two minutes, all was looking rosy for the newly engaged Billy and Dawn. But that sense of contentment is set to go out of the window when the pair end up having a major falling out.
As the two of them row, we’ll get Dawn’s dad Will trying to sort the situation out before Kim steps in as an unlikely peacemaker. Fingers crossed that her acid tongue doesn’t make things worse…
Jai resorts to fraud
Jai’s money worries are to worsen when he discovers that another loan he’s applied for has been rejected.
Deciding to put a new plan into action, he then changes the name of the applicant to that of his partner Laurel. Will this ploy result in the loan being accepted? And is Laurel set to find out about his duplicity?
