By , Soaps Reporter
Emmerdale schemer Charity Macey will persuade her daughter Debbie Dingle to cover for her next week as her abortion lie looks set to be exposed.

Megan (Gaynor Faye) is left stunned when she finally learns that Charity (Emma Atkins) had a termination earlier in the year, rather than suffering a miscarriage as she has been claiming.

With her son Robbie firmly on board, the pair then attempt to persuade Declan (Jason Merrells) that Charity has been lying to him all this time.

Although Declan initially appears reluctant to believe them, their talk starts to unnerve him and he makes a call to his solicitor, enquiring about their pre-nup agreement.

Later, he sends Charity into a panic when he asks her to accompany him to the abortion clinic to prove she didn't terminate their unborn baby.

Charity is rattled when Megan informs her Declan has been asking questions and is having doubts.

EastEnders' Maddy Hill: 'Nancy will feel betrayed by Linda'

By , Soaps Editor
Nancy Carter is left feeling livid on EastEnders next week as she becomes convinced that her mum Linda is having an affair with Dean Wicks.

Sharon Rickman is to blame for the mix-up as when Linda tells her about Dean recently trying to kiss her, Sharon suggests that she may not be entirely innocent in the situation.

Maddy Hill as Nancy Carter


As the two friends end up in an argument, Mick asks Nancy to step in and take a drunken Sharon home. However, when Nancy does so, she is left horrified as Sharon spills the beans about Linda and Dean…

Here, Maddy Hill - who plays Nancy - reveals how her character reacts to the troubling news.

How does Nancy feel when she hears what Sharon has to say?
"Nancy is really shocked - she would never, ever expect that of her mum. She sees her mum as a lot of things but not disloyal and definitely not a cheater, so she's taken aback. Her mum has always been utterly loyal to her dad."

Does she believe it straight away?
"Why would Sharon make it up? She can't think of a reason she would so has to believe it, as Sharon has no ulterior motive."

How does Nancy feel towards her mum after this?
"She's really angry and upset. Nancy is so close to her dad as she's such a daddy's girl, so this is the ultimate betrayal."

How does she feel towards Dean?
"Absolutely venomous. She can't stand him. She tried to welcome him into her family and he repays her by doing this!"

When Mick expresses concern about Nancy's strange behaviour, is she tempted to tell him then?
"She's tempted to tell him, but at that time she still thinks it will do more harm than good and she wants to get to the bottom of what's actually going on. She knows it will crush her dad and he'll go nuts at Dean and that will be a lot to handle. So she has to measure the pros and cons before doing something rash."

But then she sees Linda and Dean together and loses it…
"That's when she decides that they're having a full-blown affair. She hasn't actually seen anything other than maybe a look, which is Dean pining after Linda - but when you have an idea in your head, you fill it out and see things that aren't even there. At Stan's birthday party, Nancy is reading into all these things which is just Linda being awkward with Dean after what happened. She reads it really wrong."

Will Nancy reveal all to Mick?
"You'll have to tune in and see! She's very angry, so anything could happen…"

Mick has also recently lied to Nancy over the Rainie situation, so does that make her feel worse?
"Probably. It's hit Nancy a little bit later than most - because she's still quite childlike and so close to her family - that her parents aren't infallible. It normally hits people when they are about 18 that your parents aren't perfect, and she's reaching that with both of them. When it's one after the other, it's more hard-hitting."

Fans have picked up on the relationship between Nancy and Tamwar. Could there be romance on the cards?
"I don't know - I think they're just very good friends at the moment. I don't think that Nancy sees it that way, but maybe she hasn't grown up enough yet. Maybe she's not looking for a relationship, and if she's not looking for a relationship, she's not going to appreciate a good one that's there in her face. She'd have to be ready to enter into something with Tamwar as she'd only do it if she was very serious about him."

What about Nancy and Dexter?
"There's not been much action there for a while but there's some unfinished business. I'm pretty sure that she fancies him and that usually leads to hanky panky!"

How do you make the on-screen Carter family bonds seem so natural?
"Because we really, really, really like each other! I realise that if I've had a full day working with them, I come away from it feeling so fulfilled and happy. We work so well together. As long as you like each other and know each other really well, it gives so much scope for interesting acting. We don't have to make an effort to spend time with each other - we just really want to spend time with each other."

What's it like working with Timothy West (Stan)?
"Absolutely fantastic - he's hilarious and a legend. You learn so much from him. He's a comic genius. There are some scenes when Stan's just there, looking a bit like he's up to something in the background and feeding one liners and it's so funny. I can tell, at least I hope, that he really enjoys those scenes."

Aside from the Carters, who else from the cast have you grown close to?
"I spend a lot of time with Himesh Patel. We get on really well and spend a lot of time thinking up comedy sketches. I always have a good chat with Lindsey Coulson and Sam Womack cracks me up. Everyone is lovely!"

What's been your favourite scene to film so far?
"There have been so many! There's a hilarious one we filmed recently when there were a lot of us round at the Masoods'. We were filming back-to-back scenes all day and Nitin Ganatra is the funniest man alive. He just made my day an absolute pleasure and everyone else's day - everyone was just cracking up all day. That was very fun!"
