Emmerdale spoilers: Does David die after shooting and what to expect next?

Emmerdale’s episode last Thursday saw David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) take a bullet for Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins) in the stomach, after she was kept hostage alongside Wendy (Susan Cookson) in a siege by Russ (Rob Jarvis).

Although David is in a relationship with the ITV soap’s Meena (Paige Sandhu), he and Vic have been growing fond of each other for months.

And while Meena is away visiting her injured niece, David’s heroic dive to take a bullet for Victoria suggested he wanted to be more than friends with her.

Does Emmerdale’s David die?

Dedicated viewers will know that David wakes in hospital and is well enough to speak, however he is still under critical hospital care.

But Wolfenden revealed that his character does eventually recover from the shooting and that we can expect more suspense-building stunts in the coming weeks.

What’s next in Emmerdale?

The actor also revealed that there are some more exciting scenes coming up on Emmerdale.

“We’ve got a huge week coming up which we’re filming at the minute which has something to do with Meena,” he said.

As Emmerdale fans know, Victoria laid her heart out to David at the end of Tuesday’s episode expressing her love for him.

However, after a conversation with his ex, Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) about putting his son, Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) first, David decides to very clearly tell Victoria that he is not interested in her.

‘’I would’ve done the same for anyone… I’m sorry if I gave you the wrong impression,’’ he said while connected to hospital machines and breathing tools, as he lay in his bed.

Distraught and in floods of tears, Victoria left the hospital room after David’s brutal rejection.

With Meena away, will Victoria be left in more than tears if she returns to find out about their secret feelings for each other?

Could this be what Matthew was hinting at when he mentioned a never before stunt performed on a soap?

Emmerdale airs tonight and every weekday at 7pm on ITV.
