CRAIG rocked up the village and surprised his childhood sweetheart Lydia Dingle at a local job fair.
But next week in Emmerdale, jealousy slowly gets the best of her husband Sam as he watches them get close again.
Lydia and Sam Dingle (James Hooton) have been desperately trying to make ends meet, particularly due to the birth of their granddaughter Esther last year.
But when Lydia asked Kim Tate (Claire King) for more hours, she was given a stern refusal, prompting her to attend the job fair in the eponymous village.
This is where she bumped into someone from her past, Craig (The Girl Before star Ben Addis), who she knows from the children's home.
Coming up on ITV, Sam and Lydia discuss Craig’s reappearance before she reconnects with him at The Hide.
