All EMMERDALE fans are saying the same about David Metcalfe after Nicola King crashed his car in a minor accident.
The store owner – played by Matthew Wolfenden in the ITV series – is in debt and facing bankruptcy after spending the past year on vacation or squandering his money.
Viewers watched him accept a small loan from his father’s girlfriend Brenda Walker in an effort to help him get back on his feet.
But his plans to offer free delivery to nearby villages dashed when his father indicated that he would incur a heavy loss on each delivery.
David decided to move on, ignoring Eric’s business acumen.
But as he did – Nicola King had a panic attack in her car and the two collided.
David erupted in anger, yelling at Nicola who had been hit by her car.
And all the fans were saying the same about David.
One wrote: “David is going to get every bit of the money from Nicola now, won’t he so he can try to get rid of his debts.”
“David will say it will cost more than it is,” said a second.
However, David will soon take more drastic measures in an effort to solve his financial problems.
Later this week, David will decide to commit an insurance fraud after claiming he was badly injured by little Prang in tonight’s episode.
Viewers saw him run screaming at Nicola – but David will insist he is seriously injured.
He is set to take legal action to claim compensation for his fake injuries, insisting that Nicolas is responsible.
His scheme will see his friends and family turn against him, knowing full well that he is not as infected as he claims.
But what will the extra pressure do for Nicola as she struggles to come to terms with the fallout from her fight?
