FIRE-STARTING Kerry Wyatt will be left for dead in Emmerdale next week following a dramatic confrontation with Tracy Metcalfe over the factory blaze that killed dad, Frank Clayton.
Tracy will be left shocked when Kerry – who’s played by Laura Norton in the ITV soap – finally confesses to her that she started the fire, not Frank, as the police have been led to believe.
Kerry – along with her daughter Amy – are planning to flee the village as it looks like the net is closing in on them and their dark secret.
When Tracy finds that Kerry is hiding passports and one-way tickets, she confronts her, and Kerry is forced to admit the truth.
Tracy is obviously furious while Kerry and Amy are determined to keep their secret. They lock Tracy in the house so she can’t get to the police before their getaway.
But Tracy makes a run for it leading to Kerry and Amy setting chase after her.
Disaster strikes though when Kerry takes a nasty fall and hits her head – hard.
A horrified Tracy is soon seeing a devastated Amy crying over Kerry’s unresponsive body.
Tracy is left convinced that she’s killed Kerry. Is Kerry really dead?
Kerry and Amy accidentally started the factory blaze which killed Frank back in July as they tried to wipe CCTV footage of Kerry robbing the safe.
The police pinned the tragedy on Frank, but Tracy has been determined to clear his name.
