Emmerdale is set to air a new romantic twist for David Metcalfe ahead of his exit from the soap.
It was revealed last month that star Matthew Wolfenden would be leaving the show after 17 years in the role, and now more details of his storyline building up to his departure have been unveiled.
In new scenes set to air on the soap, David is left in a state of reflection regarding his breakup with Victoria last year, and while chatting with Jacob in the shop, he admits his feelings for her are growing again.
However, there is a sense that Jacob is unhappy about this – is he disapproving of David's chaotic love life, or is there more going on than meets the eye?
David's exit comes as Matthew is reportedly looking for a change-up amid a lack of gritty plotlines for his character recently.
"It's more about the practicality of the kiss and making sure you get the camera angle right. I can safely say that I've never banged heads with anyone during a kissing scene, but it does happen.
"You can request an intimacy co-ordinator, but I've never needed one. When you're working that closely with someone you become really good mates. It's never weird or awkward, because you're working with them every day and it's just part of the job."
Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
