Over the past few months, we've seen the pair grow much closer - but things became awkward last Friday when they both finally seemed to realise what was happening - and Laurel has since decided to keep her distance.
That's not the end of the storyline, though, as All About Soap now reports that Laurel will share an illicit kiss with Marlon (Mark Charnock) in a forthcoming episode.
There's no word yet on whether the kiss could lead to something more, but Charlotte Bellamy - who plays Laurel - recently suggested that her character may not necessarily be tempted into an affair.
Will things develop further between Laurel and Marlon or will the kiss be strictly a one-off?
Emmerdale is expected to air the scenes in question next month.
