Aaron Dingle's new Emmerdale romance hits a stumbling block later this month, as he seems reluctant to take things further with his new boyfriend Alex Mason.
The popular character is currently trying to move on from Robert Sugden by making a go of things with Alex, but their relationship runs into trouble when the doc wants to take things further.
Although Aaron's interfering sister Liv Flaherty is still backing the new pairing all the way, Aaron is visibly uncomfortable when Alex suggests they should go back to his place.
Things only get worse when Alex moves in to kiss Aaron and he pulls away, which leads to Alex leaving and Aaron kicking himself for rejecting him.
Later on, the real reason for Aaron's hesitant behaviour seems to have been revealed when Aaron takes off his t-shirt and looks at his scars.
Aaron has often been nervous about these visible reminders of his previous self-harm and would definitely be worried about Alex seeing them.
What does this mean for Alex and Aaron's future?
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
