Favorite Eric Pollard from Emmerdale may lose his beloved B&B if his son David Metcalfe’s debt continues to spiral out of control.
Eric Pollard, an Emmerdale businessman (played by Chris Chittell), has long been a fixture in the community. Eric has been attempting to assist his son David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden), who is dealing with several debt problems, in recent scenes. In addition to facing the possibility of losing his business, David’s girlfriend Victoria Sugden (Isabel Steele) has broken off their engagement.
Victoria made the decision to break up with David after he told her a lie and put his lover’s name down instead of his when he was pulled over for speeding.
David could face a jail sentence despite going to the police and confessing everything.
Even worse, the shop owner has begun playing poker with the locals in an effort to win some cash.
Though Eric was utterly incensed when he learned the truth.
The B&B proprietor barged into The Woolpack and ordered David to leave.
If David’s debt gets out of hand, Eric might have to step in and save him.
Because of his son’s actions, Eric might also end up having to sell his beloved B&B.
The B&B will soon have some new owners, according to executive producer Jane Hudson’s scenes.
Executive producer Jane Hudson claims that new owners will soon take over the B&B.
And while she didn’t name who they will be, the show boss teased it will be an unlikely partnership.
“We’re going to have some new owners at the B&B, I’ve just been down to look at the new B&B set and it’s absolutely fantastic,” she teased to thesuns.info and other press.
“I’m not going to tell you who the new owners are just yet, but let’s just say it’s very boutique the new decor.
“It is very glamorous, it’s got an absolute touch of class and it’s just on the right side of not being cheesy, so they are your clues.
She added: “And it’s going to be two owners, who are not a couple and who will be running the B&B. So enjoy that one!”
The director of the soap continued by talking about another intriguing plot point occurring in the village.
“We have got a lot of our youngsters that have got stories coming up,” she said.
“I think you get to an age with the young cast where you suddenly realise they are growing up.
They have been off-screen for a few weeks, but when they return, their voices are deeper and they are a foot taller, you think, “Oh my gosh, we need to start growing them up in the show!”
“You’ll see a really big, emotionally charged story for Cathy (Gabrielle Dowling), Bob’s daughter.
“Cathy’s got a big story coming up. It’s really her first big story, and it’s a challenging one that I think a lot of parents will connect with. It’s also a story I haven’t seen a soap do before.
And after that, we have April’s (Amelia Flanagan) tale, in which she helps her father recover from his stroke while navigating the world with her.
