Hazel’s meltdown!

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.



  1. I’m glad that we are getting to see more and more of Hazel.

    Still can’t believe she was Sharon in Birds of a Feather !

  2. Well, it’s about time! Her cheery and strong disposition had to give in at some point.

  3. I am not surprised about this – Xmas time can be especially painful for those with worries because everyone else seems to be enjoying themselves, and the person with serious problems feels isolated. And let’s face it, apart from guilt-riden visits from Jerry, who else has visited Jackson in recent weeks?. Apart from the on/off support from Bob, she has had to cope on her own – we don’t even see many hospital staff.

    Realistically, I don’t suppose poor Jackson will care where he is – home or hospital, because he has to cope with an entirely new way of life with all the problems it will bring

    • Agreed Alan. Sometimes it’s difficult to see everybody else happy, enjoying themselves and having a good time while you have so many bad / wrong things happening in your own life. Putting up a front does help but that eventually fails and is often followed by lashing out.

  4. Totally agreed Alan. Well said. 🙂
