Emmerdale: Gus’ wife died at the hospital

In Emmerdale yesterday, Rhona was meant to be meeting up with Gus to talk about the use of her embryos without consent.

However, when Gus didn’t turn up, Rhona went to his house instead and was shocked to find him planning his escape with Lucy.

As Rhona confronted the couple, Lucy’s waters suddenly broke which prompted Rhona to offer her a lift to the hospital.

Lucy gave birth to a baby girl but was soon rushed to theatre due to some heavy bleeding.

Later on, Gus broke down in tears as he revealed that Lucy had passed away. He then accused Rhona of causing Lucy’s death.
