With so much on her shoulders, Rhona will need to rely on April and others for more help so she doesn’t have to worry about Marlon too much.

However, although she doesn’t mean to, the teenager could end up causing another incident with her father as she tries to feed him.

This could end up with him choking again and this time, there might not be anyone around to help as Rhona is at work.

April would call the ambulance but with too much time having passed before they get there, Marlon could end up dying in her arms.

Unfortunately, this will be hugely traumatic for the youngster to go through so will she ever be the same again?

The actress who plays Rhona, Zoe, has praised the youngster who plays April, Amelia, for the part she has played in the stroke storyline.

Zoe told ITV’s Lorraine: “I think what’s really interesting is how this has been written, and obviously, I don’t know much ahead, we are only six weeks ahead, but how it’s impacted on April, which I think is a really important key element.

“She’s really special, and I mean, she’s been in the show for quite some time now.

“She was about five when she joined and she’s the same age as my son, so she’s 13. I mean, Amelia not only knows her lines, she knows my lines, Mark’s lines, everybody’s lines.”

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode airing on Thursdays.
