Eric (played by Chris Chittell) has been a figurehead of the Emmerdale community for over 30 years, making quite the success of himself in the village. Not only does he co-own The Grange Bread and Breakfast, but he is also the possessor of Pollard’s Barn where he used to live with his beloved late wife, Val Pollard (Charlie Hardwick). However, it seems his perfect bubble could start to deflate in upcoming scenes on the ITV soap as some of his neighbours seeming to be eyeing up the property for themselves. Could he be left homeless for Christmas?

Pollard’s Barn has had several owners of the years, starting off with village vixen Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) which she possessed during her more scheming days.
The troublesome character took on the conversion whilst in a relationship with factory boss, Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson).
It was then the latter who sold it on to Eric and his late wife, but he now currently lives there with Val’s beloved pet labrador, Cheryl.
Other residents who have also lived there with the pensioner include Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson), Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) and Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter).
However, it could be the latter’s relatives who take on the deeds to the property as Vinny Dingle star Bradley Johnson has teased his character could have his heart set on moving in.

Although the relationship between his parents is quite fraught right now, the youngster is hoping one day they will be a big, happy family.
