Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Emmerdale‘s Charles Anderson and Andrea Tate are set to spark some opposition as they begin to date.
A romantic spark between the Dales residents was teased a couple of weeks ago, though – in scenes set to air next week – they’re set to take things a bit further.
Andrea asks the vicar out for a drink, and while he turns her down initially, son Ethan encourages him to go for it and Charles decides to take Andrea up on her offer.

However, Manpreet Sharma can’t help but suppress her jealously at seeing the two together at the Woolpack given their past romantic history.
As fans will know, Manpreet was actually engaged to Charles 15 years ago, though disappeared on the day of their wedding as she was already married to first husband Dennis. She was also known as ‘Saira’ to him at the time.

In the new scenes, the date between Charles and Andrea goes so well that he arranges for a second – though Manpreet’s sister Meena seems equally unhappy with the new union and starts plotting with her.
Could this ultimately drive a wedge in the blossoming romance? After all, Manpreet is clearly still in love with Charles given their long history together (and despite working things out with husband Rishi).
Emmerdale airs these scenes in the week commencing Monday, April 5 on ITV.
