Emmerdale viewers were furious as tonight’s jaw-dropping scenes saw Andrea Tate blackmailed Jamie into get back together with her.
The character threatened Jamie after discovering he was the person responsible for the hit-and-run accident, which saw Moira Dingle hospitalised.
Andrea warned him that if he leaves her for lover Belle Dingle, she will tell the police he was the driver who hit Moira.
She said to her distressed husband: “Walk away and it will break my heart… maybe even enough to make me go to the police and tell them everything.”
After Andrea gave Jamie the ultimatum, fans branded her “desperate” during mind-blowing scenes, and flooded Twitter with comments.
One said: “Andrea is so desperate.”
While another wrote: “How can Andrea expect her marriage to work when she is blackmailing Jamie into staying with her?! She needs to move on!”
A third added: “I’ve never known a woman as desperate as Andrea.”
The end of the episode was incredible dramatic, as Andrea gave Jamie the difficult choice. She said either he stays with her or she goes to the police.
She told him she still loved him, to which Jamie confessed he didn’t feel the same feelings towards her.
Fans continued to tweet even after the episode had come to a close, saying they were disappointed in Andrea for clinging onto the relationship.
Another wrote: “I’m disappointed in the direction Andrea’s character has gone, I wanted her to be a strong willed not to be messed with woman.
“Instead she’s desperate to cling to Jamie, a man that not only cheated on her, he clearly doesn’t want her… she could do so much better.”
While another Twitter user said: “C’mon Andrea take the hint he says he doesn’t love you, leave with whatever dignity you have left, just goooooo!”
“Wow Andrea could you be more pathetic?!” typed another.
