Emmerdale‘s Cain Dingle treads on the toes of Monday’s episode (ITV, 7:00 p.m., see our TV guide for full listings).

Cain Dingle’s war with Al Chapman has been raging for months. But the battle could be about to cost Cain dearly.

With the mad mechanic that Al is sleeping with Kerry – his son Kyle’s grandmother – Cain wants to talk to his baby mama Amy.

He doesn’t want his enemy near his child let alone living under the same roof.

But Amy doesn’t appreciate Cain trying to dictate to her mother from elsewhere.

As an argument erupts, Amy angrily fights back and warns Cain that she will fight him for custody of their son if he doesn’t back down.

Later, Moira tells Amy that she will try to appease her husband. But as Al lurks, desperate to bring out the fiery Cain, is Moira aiming for the impossible?

In Mulberry, Laurel is in a state as her owner, Kim Tate, plans to sell the place.

Having lived there with the kids for years, Laurel can’t bear the thought of moving and leaving the cherished memories of her late husband Ashley behind.

Jai is desperate to help his distraught girlfriend, but must also make sure she doesn’t find out he’s secretly taken out a loan in her name.

Knowing about his dodgy job means applying for a mortgage is out of the question. Jai suggests Kim sell Brook Cottage, which would make Bernice homeless instead!

When that fails and Laurel starts talking about buying Mulberry from Kim, a panicked Jai targets her own family home, Holdgate!

Before long, Jai has Bernice and her sister Priya on his case and they are furious that he tried to kick them out of their house.

As an argument starts, Sharma’s father, Rishi, suddenly collapses…
