Hazel’s frustrations will soon boil over in Emmerdale as she has a public meltdown at the village’s Christmas carol service.
Convinced that Jackson will not be able to leave hospital for the festive season because her planned renovations at Dale Head haven’t been finished, Hazel struggles to keep a lid on her temper as Ashley speaks about Christmas miracles.
Overcome with grief and emotion, Hazel accuses him of talking rubbish as there’s no way Jackson can ever walk again, and if there’s anyone who deserves a miracle it’s him. She also questions how any God could let such a tragic accident happen.
Storming out, Hazel throws the church’s collection box at the nativity scene before breaking down in tears. Will her loved ones be able to provide any comfort? And is there any chance that Jackson can be home for Christmas?
These scenes air on Thursday, December 16th at 7pm on ITV1.
