He was nice about it - but yeah, like I said, nothing happened." She then started to give hints that there was more for her to talk about as she said: "I wish I did fancy him - it'd be a lot easier."

EMMERDALE viewers spotted a big baby blunder as they claimed Moira's newborn looks about three months old.

You might hope that in the aftermath of Emma and Finn’s deaths, the news of a birth might cheer up the villagers – but that very much depends on where you’re standing. Unexpected new mum Moira is struggling to get her head around her little arrival (and the fact she made it out of that barn in one piece), but when she and Pete realise that it may not be his child, things get a whole lot more complicated – especially for Cain and Harriet.
