Chas Dingle will face breast cancer head-on next week after a well-deserved break from her namesake village.
But in doing so, the Emmerdale legend brings some bad news to the rest of her family, and her son Aaron struggles to cope.
The Woolpack bar manager, played by Lucy Pargetter, is devastated when she is diagnosed with the same type of cancer that her late mother Faith Dingle had.
Chas initially decided to keep the news private, but eventually gathered her family at the Woolpack and told everyone she had been diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer.
Following the revelations, Chas decided to take some time away from the eponymous ITV village with her young daughter Eve.
However, Chas will appear on screen again next week to make a bombshell about the remaining members of the Dingle clan.
Chas soon reveals to his family that his cancer is caused by a defect in the BRCA2 gene.
Her brothers Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley), Caleb Milligan (Will Ash), and son Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) are blindsided when they learn that they too are likely to be infected. turn into.
They are even more upset by the realization that it could be passed on to their children.
Chas prepares to visit Mandy (Lisa Riley) for her birthday and suggests that Aaron make an appointment for a referral for genetic testing.
He is evasive and anxious under her constant pressure.
Ruby Milligan (Beth Cordingley) overhears a conversation about the BRCA2 genetic defect from the gossiping Dingles in The Woolpack and insists Caleb tell him what it is.
Dingle and the others watch as an argument breaks out, with Chas hoping for an opening.
Ruby and Caleb’s argument quickly escalates, prompting Cain to intervene.
Caleb therefore tries to move the discussion outside, but Ruby remains adamant.
The confrontation ended with a knee to the groin from Kane, which shocked Dingles all over.
How will Cain react?
As the argument continues, Chas remains in the back room, supported by female friends and family.
The group talks about her cancer and how catching the lump early gives her the best chance.
But could there be a devastating turn of events for another member of the Dingle family?
