On Wednesday, Emmerdale was rife with drama as Matty Barton parted ways with Amy Wyatt.
The most recent Emmerdale episode drew a lot of criticism from viewers, many of whom expressed frustration with various plotlines. One in particular was the romance between newcomer Naomi Walters and Alex Moore (played by Karene Peters) (Liam Boyle). Another was Matty Barton’s troubled relationship with Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) (Ash Palmisciano).
The more the vicar Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) tries to discourage Naomi from seeing Alex, the more determined his daughter becomes.
Naomi’s brother Ethan (Emile John) attempted to reason with his sister during the episode on Wednesday, but she was unreceptive.
Naomi asked Ethan for a loan as they prepared for their big night out.
Please, bro, could you lend me a twenty, Naomi begged.
“No,” Ethan hit back. “I’ll never see it again.”
However, after asking him again, Ethan caved and gave her the £20 she asked for. He said: “If it will make such a difference to your night.”
“You know that it will,” Naomi said as the lawyer asked: “You know what will make a difference to mine… is if you rethink this whole Alex thing.
“He [dad] is only trying to save you from making another bad decision.”
“Another one,” Naomi fumed. “Get off my case, Ethan.”
He fired back: “Alex reoffended as soon as he came out of prison and he tried to blackmail Dawn.”
“That’s your version,” Naomi teased as she proceeded to invite Alex on their night out.
Elsewhere, Matty made the drastic decision to walk out on Amy, admitting he’d had enough.
The episode concluded with Matty telling Amy he “needed space” to think about their future as a couple.
However, following the episode, fans became frustrated with Amy and Noami, calling for them to be “written out” of the soap.
Although, could a double exit be on the cards, especially if Amy and Matty break up for good?
Taking to Twitter, @gffcontwitch fumed: “Sod off Amy, and get in jail, murderer #Emmerdale.”
@MickJohnPNEFC said: “P*** off Amy please….#emmerdale.”
While @Dbella91 added: “Naomi is horrible arrogant self-entitled freeloader. Get rid @emmerdale read the room! #Emmerdale.” (sic)
“Can Meena please come back for one night to get rid of Naomi? Just push her off the bridge or something and then back to prison. #emmerdale,” @dondons100 pleaded.
@jrocksy complained: “God Naomi has no redeeming features…smarmy, mardy, sarcy and miserable…write her out! #emmerdale.” (sic)
@itzzzo_ went on to say: “Colin and Naomi singlehandedly showing how many unlikeable characters there are in this show #Emmerdale.”
“Naomi is the worst character on #Emmerdale by a country mile,” @carl_lewis_91 tweeted.
