This is the eye watering moment that sees sleazy Phil handcuffed to a hotel room bed in his boxers as Tracy Shankley takes video footage of him in Emmerdale – just as David Metcalfe walks in! But is there more to this situation than meets the eye?
Grotesque blackmailer Phil wants Tracy to sleep with him in exchange for him keeping quiet about her past of accepting money for sex. he has a video of them together on his phone and has warned that he will show it to David if she doesn’t comply.
Reluctantly, Tracy agrees to meet him in a hotel room but, unbeknown to her, David is on her trail as he has been suspecting that she is having an affair after spotting the booking she has made.
As an uncomfortable Tracy instructs Phil to get dressed and handcuffs him to the bed, it remains to be seen whether she was planning to sleep with him or whether she has a ploy to turn the tables. But whatever her intention, David soon gets an eyeful – and this will take a lot of explaining.
Can Tracy come clean about what has been going on? And how will David react when he is confronted with Tracy’s past?
Emmerdale airs these scenes on Wednesday 21st February at 7pm on ITV.
