Only recently on Emmerdale, vicar Harriet Finch and village bad boy Cain Dingle embarked in a steamy secret affair.
However, it looks as though they won’t be the only couple at it this summer in the Yorkshire Dales if the first look spoiler pictures are anything to go by.
It’s been a traumatic couple of days for Priya Sharma and things have been on the rocks with her husband Rakesh Kotecha.
Rakesh handed himself into the police earlier this week after Jimmy King revealed to half of Emmerdale that he started the fire at The Mill that injured Nicola King.

Priya refused to lie to the authorities to get her husband off the hook, and as a result, Rakesh is facing prison while being shunned by residents of the village.
Through all the drama, Priya finds an unlikely shoulder to cry on and ends up confiding in her best friend Leyla Harding’s fella Pete Barton.
However, one thing leads to another and the two characters end up sharing a kiss as they head upstairs…will Priya and Pete sleep together? And what will their significant others – Leyla and Rakesh – say?
The spoiler storyline comes after Producer Iain MacLeod teased a “sexy” and “fun” plot for Pete as well as revealing that the village would be rocked by “wild” affairs during the spring and summer months.

Talking to SoapSquawk, he said: “There’s a big story coming up for Pete which will be sexy and fun.
“It plays to Anthony Quinlan’s strengths which is smouldering leading man but he can also do comedy.
“Pete’s got a hapless quality to him which I think is brilliant.
“He’s tough, an alpha male and a match for Ross physically but he’s also capable of being soft and silly.”
