Tracy Shankley’s past is set to be explored in a mysterious new storyline which sees a stranger turn up who has a photograph of her from her younger days. But how does the Emmerdale newcomer know her and is he bringing sinister trouble to her door?
Tracy and hubby David Metcalfe arrive back from Paris all loved up and feeling the glow and, on a high, Tracy reaches out to Priya Sharma over their recent feud. However when Tracy then finds David’s phone and sees that he has been texting Leyla Harding, she is upset at his secrecy but holds back from confronting him.
Seething privately and worried that David still carries a torch for Leyla, Tracy starts flirting with handyman Phil and, after getting drunk, she asks him for a drink. Vanessa is contacted to take a drunk Tracy home but she won’t budge and continues to flirt with Phil.
After this awkward scene, Tracy later confronts David about the texts and he explains to her what is going on but is it enough to calm her down? And will David confess that he slept with Leyla?
Meanwhile, Phil looks at an old photo of a young Tracy on his phone furtively but why is he after her? Is Tracy is serious danger and is Phil a link to her past?
