Marlon Dingle will return to hospital after his health setback in Emmerdale.

As Marlon continues his long road to recovery from his stroke, he had some trouble in Tuesday's episode because of a choking hazard in front of April.

When April admitted she was worried about being left alone with her dad, a tearful Marlon admitted to Rhona he wanted to go back to the hospital for round-the-clock care that wouldn't be his family's responsibility.

Rhona is determined to carry out Marlon's care at home, even as he struggles with a cough. She worries the following day when she has to leave Marlon at home alone for the first time.

Bear ends up being drafted in by Mary to take Marlon on a visit to the allotments where the cough only gets worse. As Bear urges Liam to take Marlon into A&E, there is concern all around about the way the day has gone.

Rhona is furious when she finds out Mary let Marlon out of the house without telling her, especially after finding out at the hospital her partner has contracted aspiration pneumonia.

The hospital staff need to put Marlon in a ventilator to help with breathing, leaving Rhona more worried than ever. Even though Rhona struggles to put on a brave face, Marlon soon realises how serious his condition has become.

The couple get more disheartening news the following day when it is explained to them that the progress Marlon has made will likely regress — at least initially — as he's treated for pneumonia.

Back in the village, Paddy is heartbroken when he overhears his father Bear blaming himself for Marlon's condition taking a turn for the worse.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
