Emmerdale's Samson Dingle, portrayed by Sam Hall, is set to come clean and exonerate Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) in upcoming episodes. As regular viewers will know, Matty is currently behind bars due to false accusations made by Samson regarding a recent incident at The Hide.

Samson was unintentionally hurt during an attempted robbery at the bar and restaurant last month. His friend Josh Cope (Osian Morgan) persuaded him to falsely claim that Matty had intentionally stabbed him, causing a rift within the Dingle family.

However, in next week's episodes, Samson decides to speak to the police after his stepmother Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick) applies pressure. This week's instalments see Lydia realising that Samson has been dishonest about the events of the day he was stabbed at The Hide.

After seeing Josh pressuring Samson to maintain his lie to the police, Lydia suspects that Samson is concealing something.

In scenes to follow next week, Samson receives contrasting advice from two close family members as he contemplates leaving the village to travel with Josh, reports the Express.

Sam Dingle (James Hooton) advises his son Samson to flee, fearing the consequences if his lies are revealed.

On the other hand, Lydia is appalled by this extreme suggestion and encourages Samson to confront the situation with the police.

Samson decides to heed Lydia's advice and visits the police station to reveal the true circumstances surrounding his stabbing. He finally confesses that it was an accident and Matty wasn't responsible.

Sam is livid with Lydia for meddling, while other Dingle family members also criticise Lydia for her desire to involve the police.

However, Samson's lies have created a divide between Sam and his uncle Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley), who is also Matty's stepfather. While Moira (Natalie J. Robb) and Cain have sided with Matty, Sam and his wife Lydia initially backed Samson, believing his account of events.

Moira and Cain are relieved that Matty's innocence has finally been established. Moira is optimistic that Matty will soon be released from prison.

Cain's allegiance to Matty infuriates Sam, leading to Sam knocking Cain to the ground during a heated confrontation at The Woolpack, but his half-brother refuses to back down.

Cain even makes a stern visit to the Dingle house to ensure that Samson doesn't still plan to flee.

Sam fumes over Cain's interference, while Samson is concerned about what might happen to him if he's left alone with a vengeful Cain.

As Matty won't be released immediately, he knows that he has to somehow survive in jail for a while longer as he is tormented by transphobic inmates and fears for his life. Emmerdale continues weekdays on ITV from 7:30pm.
