Emmerdale is set to take the phrase death by chocolate a little too literally tonight as Manpreet Sharmas (Rebecca Sarker) patient Derek (Tommy Cannon) suddenly drops dead, leaving Rishi Sharma (Bhasker Patel) worried that his new line of chocolates are to blame for poisoning him.

As Derek falls ill not long after sampling the chocolates, Rishi is troubled to find that David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) is also feeling under the weather. Things get worse when Derek passes away and Rishi attempts to stay calm as Manpreet tries to reassure him.

The plot will then thicken when Sam Dingle (James Hooton) is left fearing the worst when his chickens are implicated in the scenario – have they been the ones to give Derek salmonella. That would certainly be some seriously bad cluck.

With Derek not even cold, Manpreet will also show her more ruthless side again as she goes through his belongings.

As Sam and Rishi both worry about their futures and Manpreet considers her options after realising that she could have found the solution to her cashflow problems, it seems like Dereks death is about to kick off a whole lot of new trouble for those involved.
