Emmerdale aired its fourth lockdown episode this evening and it was the turn of Nicola King (played by Nicola Wheeler) and Jimmy King (Nick Miles) to take centre stage. During the instalment, viewers saw how living together in such close proximity was a struggle for Nicola especially, but by the end, she had a lightbulb moment and realised what she needed to go to inject some excitement into her life. However, it seems her new business venture will be at the expense of Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins).
Emmerdale viewers tuned in to see the start of a new storyline for Nicola this evening.
The mother of three – who is never far away from drama – is currently a councillor for the local area.
But it seems she is about to experience a career change after dropping a remark to husband Jimmy.
The episode kicked off with Nicola setting up a village group WhatsApp in order for the residents to stay connected during the unprecedented time.
“The village people,” Nicola said in reference to what they should call the group.

“The hand washers,” Jimmy offered and his wife continued: “Village idiots?”
“So this phone group you’re setting up, it definitely needs the word village in it?” Jimmy asked and Nicola explained: “We’re all stuck inside in this village so yes it does.”
“Who else have you got on there?” Jimmy questioned and those watching at home saw Nicola reveal: “Let me see, Laurel obviously, Marlon -“
And Jimmy made a sniggering remark when the Woolpack chef’s name was mentioned.
Nicola hit back: “You wouldn’t have Marlon?”
“Yes but you know what he’s like he’ll keep making jokes. Plus if you have Marlon, you have to have Paddy,” Jimmy argued.
“I was going to invite Paddy,” Nicola revealed and Jimmy said: “Well you’ll have to invite Chas.”
“That’s alright, I like – well, I don’t mind Chas,” she remarked correcting herself midway through.
“If you have Marlon and Chas you’ll have to invite all the Dingle’s then they will take over and you might as well call it the Ding-Dongs,” Jimmy joked.
“You might be exaggerating a little bit Jimmy – again,” Nicola commented.

The episode ended on a cliffhanger after Nicola revealed how she can make herself feel like she’s got a purpose again.
Sitting watching a popular quiz show, Nicola had a lightbulb moment.
She said: “I’ve just realised what I’ve got to do!”
Ignoring Jimmy’s confused expression, Nicola continued: “I want a business Jimmy and I know exactly which business I want.”
But what company could she referring to?
Fans of the soap know how the local cafe which Brenda Walker (Lesley Dunlop) runs could be in financial trouble in upcoming months.
It comes after Brenda failed to display the ingredients in a wrap she was selling, and Dan Spencer (Liam Fox) – who is allergic to almonds – suffered an anaphylactic shock.

Because of the time it took for the paramedics to stabilise him, Dan suffered a spinal injury and had to undergo emergency surgery which has resulted in him being wheelchair-bound and unable to work.
There has been speculation Dan will seek legal action and will sue Brenda, which could see her in desperate need of a new business partner.
But it seems Chas and Charity should worry about their business more.
After Nicola made her feelings clear towards Chas earlier in the episode, and with The Woolpack struggling post coronavirus, there is a chance Nicola has her sights set on the number one business in Emmerdale.
Will a new rivalry between the three woman emerge as they fight for the position of landlady?
Emmerdale airs Monday and Wednesday 7pm on ITV.
