Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale's Liv Flaherty will be caught secretly drinking by Vinny Dingle in upcoming episodes after being tempted by alcohol again in the aftermath of Paul Ashdale's death.

Liv (Isobel Steele) is set to be tempted by alcohol again as she continues to struggle with secret guilt over Paul's death, feeling that she could have done more to try to save him after the crash disaster.

In scenes set to air next week, Vinny (Bradley Johnson) opens up to Liv about his therapy sessions, but Liv freezes slightly when Vinny informs her that the sessions have left him with more questions about the past.

Sensing her concerns, Vinny is left wondering what's really going on with Liv.

Later, during baby Frankie's christening, Liv feels completely lost and, not knowing where to turn, takes another drink of vodka to numb the pain.

Vinny is shocked when he discovers that Liv is covertly drinking and sees that she's at breaking point.

But will Vinny find out the true extent of Liv's drinking – and will Liv be able to tell Vinny the truth about what happened with his dad Paul?

Liv has been left feeling guilty over Paul's death as she was with Paul when Jimmy King accidentally crashed his truck into the wedding barn last month.

While she initially attempted to save Paul after he was trapped in the wreckage from the crash, Liv ultimately gave up her attempts to free him as she felt little sympathy for the villain. Shortly after, an explosion occurred and Paul later passed away from his injuries.

Recent scenes have seen Vinny ask Liv for the exact details about what happened in the barn, but Liv only told him part of the story and has been struggling with her guilt ever since.

Emmerdale airs these scenes on Thursday, May 13 at 7pm and 8pm on ITV.
