Emmerdale's Zak Dingle to get suicide storyline?

Emmerdale's Zak Dingle may consider suicide after he's rejected by his wife Lisa and bit-on-the side Joanie Wright.

Steve Halliwell, who portrays the farmer in the ITV soap, has admitted the future doesn't look good for his alter-ego and his mental health is set to plummet after he was knocked back by his spouse (Jane Cox) and then turned away by his mistress (Denise Black) following a top secret affair.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Steve, 61, said: "He could well become suicidal. He has lost absolutely everything. How can he carry on? If the family all shut off their love, it will be devastating for him."

As far as Zak is aware, Joanie has fallen out of love with him and wants to put a stop to their relationship but the grandmother was actually bribed by the farmer's son Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) to end the romance otherwise she'd risk losing her adopted grandson Kyle to social services.

Cain, who is the father of Kyle, fumed in last night's (28.12.15) episode: "I will get Kyle taken off you. I'll make it my mission. Dump Zak today and make it convincing."

Out of fear, Joanie then broke Zak's heart by calling off their relationship and he went racing home to his wife Lisa.

Furious with her cheating husband, Lisa told him their 17-year marriage was over and to "never come back" again.
