Aaron’s current dilemma will soon come to a head in Emmerdale as he must make a final decision over whether to make things work with Jackson or move on with his life.
When Hazel tells Aaron that Jackson has been moved into a wheelchair and she wants him home by Christmas, Aaron continues with his stubborn ways – bitterly insisting that he no longer cares what happens to Jackson. The discussion between the pair quickly leads to a furious row, prompting Aaron to head off to the Bar West gay club for some time to himself.
When a punter named Nick comes over and offers to buy the troubled mechanic a drink, Aaron accepts his approach – is he ready to start dating again? Or will he finally acknowledge how much Jackson means to him before it’s too late?
He soon realises that it doesn’t feel right, and heads over to the hospital instead. Aaron tells Jackson that he will always be there for him and begs for his forgiveness, promising to never let him down again.
Keen to make Jackson realise that he can still make the most of his life, Hazel and Aaron join forces to take him for a night out at Bar West.
Although uncomfortable at first, Jackson soon brightens up and appears to be having a good time. But is he just putting on a front?
These scenes air on Tuesday 7th December, 7pm, ITV1.
