EMMERDALE’S Debbie Dingle could be in for a nasty surprise.
Emmerdale’s Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) finally saw justice last night as her rapist DI Bails was sentenced to 30 years in prison for abusing her as a teenager.
The Emmerdale cast member has been battling against him for months since he returned to the Dales, and she has finally got closure.
But it looks like her nightmare is far from over, as fans are predicting she could be set for more trauma.
Viewers took to social media last night to discuss why Charity’s daughter Debbie (Charley Webb) didn’t turn up to the court appearance.
As Charity spoke about her ordeal as a teen, fans posted on social media to wonder if Debbie could be DI Bails’ too, along with Charity’s long-lost son Ryan Stocks.
One posted: “I’ve got a theory that Debbie is not Cain’s daughter.”
Another added: “Is the copper Debbie’s dad also?”
A third replied: “Now that would be a twist! Surely Emmerdale wouldn’t that after all these years.”
A fourth mused: “I think Debbie hates Charity. Debbie sees herself in her Mother and she doesn’t seem to take on board that her mother was only 13 when she gave birth to Debbie, then 14 with Ryan.. Charity has had an awful life.”
Could Charity have another secret she has to share with her eldest child about her paternity?

It seems unlikely that Debbie could be DI Bails’ child, as Charity had already started her relationship with Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
However, Charity may have started soliciting before leaving home, meaning DI Bails could have parented Debbie.
Are the Dingles set for another shock?
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
