Emmerdale fans in despair as Vanessa threatens Rhona’s rape trial

Emmerdale fans are in despair over the outcome of Rhona Goskirk’s rape trial after her friend Vanessa Woodfield lied in court to try to protect her.

Wednesday night’s episode of the ITV soap saw Michelle Hardwick’s character give evidence in a bid to bring Pierce Harris (Jonathan Wrather) to justice after he brutally attacked Rhona (Zoe Henry) just hours after their wedding.

But as followers of the hard-hitting storyline hoped that the trial would see Pierce getting his comeuppance, it looks like Vanessa’s ill-thought-out testimony could put the result in jeopardy.

As Vanessa panicked when questioned and made up answers about her relationship with both parties, viewers took to Twitter to beg her to “shut up”.

One summarised: “(Love) that Vanessa tried to lie to save Rhona was definitely the wrong move but proves that she cares!”

Meanwhile, others are still hopeful that the court case will turn out as it should by the end of the week.

The jury will reach its verdict in Friday night’s episode after the case continues on Thursday at 7pm.
