This is the devastating moment that Jackson Walsh’s loved ones realise that he is fighting for his life due to the injuries he suffered in Emmerdale‘s devastating train collision.
Following the tragic twist of fate which saw his van crash onto a level crossing before being hit by an oncoming train, Jackson is rushed to hospital – where his boyfriend Aaron, mum Hazel and friend Paddy endure an agonising wait for news.
When a doctor is finally able to give the trio an update on Jackson’s condition, they are heartbroken to learn that he’s critical and may not pull through.
Speaking of tonight’s episode, Aaron’s portrayer Danny Miller commented: “Aaron is consumed with guilt because he blames himself for the accident. He is clinging on to the hope that Jackson will pull through because losing him is unthinkable.”
The soap’s series producer Gavin Blyth added: “This is the beginning of a huge story for Emmerdale and tonight’s episodes are wrought with emotion. I’m incredibly proud of the performances which make for compelling viewing as Jackson’s life hangs in the balance.”
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm and 8pm on ITV1.
