There will be no Emmerdale episode on Monday 24th May due to England’s warm-up World Cup match against Mexico.
Monday 17th – Aaron’s surprised when Holly visits him at the garage and tells him that she’s proud of him for coming out. Meanwhile, Paddy snaps at Viv’s insensitivity about Aaron’s sexuality.
Tuesday 18th – Aaron relaxes when Victoria teases him about perhaps turning him straight.
Tuesday 25th – Chas is eager to support Aaron but Carl’s struggling to feign concern. Meanwhile, Adam insists that Aaron can’t hide at Paddy’s forever and offers to go to a gay bar with him.
Wednesday 26th – Aaron begins his community service and quickly realises that it’s going to be harder to fit in than he originally thought. Later, Adam recognises that his friend’s had a tough day and offers to go with him on a night out.
Thursday 27th (7pm) – As Aaron continues with his community service, he’s thrown when Wayne asks him about being gay, relaying that he read about him in the paper. Aaron firmly denies Wayne’s suggestion, insisting that he only claimed he was gay in the hope that the judge would issue a lighter sentence. Still denying that he’s gay, Aaron shocks himself at the depths he’ll go in order to avoid being ‘found out’ in the wider world. Wayne encourages Aaron to chat up a group of girls if what he says is true. Wayne’s amused, though, when Aaron crashes and burns under pressure. Later, as Wayne and Aaron fix a fence, Wayne’s adamant that he doesn’t believe that Aaron’s straight. With that, Wayne shoves the fence post into Aaron, causing him to fall back into the water. Will Aaron take his revenge on Wayne?
Thursday 27th (8pm) – Aaron’s humiliated after falling into the lake but when Gary intervenes, Aaron claims that his fall was an accident as he tripped backwards. Wayne smirks as Aaron’s forced to change into dry clothes. Back in the village, Adam’s sorry to hear that Aaron’s had a rough time at community service but insists that they now have more reason to go out. The pair head to Bar West and Adam points out that the evening’s not as bad as Aaron thought it would be. Aaron reluctantly agrees – until he spots Jackson. When Aaron tries to apologise to Jackson for what happened between them, Jackson’s firm – he isn’t interested and would never want to be with someone who’s violent. As Adam and Aaron prepare to leave, Aaron’s gutted to see Jackson kissing another guy. Will Aaron be able to convince Jackson to give him another chance?
Friday 28th – Aaron’s furious about being rejected by Jackson again the previous evening, while Cain and Ryan continues to tease him about the whole situation. Aaron finally allows himself to laugh when Cain points out a sexy male calendar that he bought for him.
