When Bernice (played by Sammantha Giles) became obsessed with finding out the truth about her boyfriend Liam’s (Jonny McPherson) whereabouts on Emmerdale, it very nearly tore their relationship apart.
Liam had always acted very shady about his ex-wife Lara and her death, but Bernice started to suspect there was something more sinister going on on the ITV soap recently.
Despite her sister Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) desperately trying to convince her otherwise, Bernice was nervous Liam had murdered women in secret and that was the reason for an unexpected balaclava in his doctors’ bag.
Eventually satisfied with his explanations, Bernice took a sigh of relief and the loved-up couple carried on as normal.
But tonight’s episode planted the seed of doubt in Bernice’s mind once more.
Was she right about the doctor all along?
The plot began when Nicola picked up on Liam and Bernice’s pet names for each other in the village salon.
Repulsed by the sickeningly sweet terms of Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, Nicola spat: “Seriously?
“You know what they say, never complain never explain,” Bernice answered with a grin.
“The Big Bad Wolf was a murdering predator, and until very recently, you thought balaclava man was too,” Nicola persisted, but it was no use.
