Emmerdale fans fear for Lydia’s safety after ‘creepy’ ex tracks her down at home

Emmerdale fans were left fearing for Lydia Dingle’s safety on Friday, when the latest visit to the dales saw an unexpected visitor arrive on her doorstep at Wishing Well cottage.

As regular viewers will know, Lydia ran into her ex-boyfriend and childhood sweetheart Craig at a job fair this week, before it was revealed he was the father of her infant son Toby, who was stillborn when the couple were still only teenagers themselves.

In emotional scenes on Thursday, Lydia revealed the truth about their baby and how she had struggling along in silence after keeping her pregnancy a secret.

Admitting how heartbroken she had been that Toby was born stillborn, in a further devastating twist, Lydia confessed that she had buried her son in a spot of woodland, before changing her identity.

Following the revelations, Lydia bid farewell to Craig and excused herself from the fair, without asking to reconnect any further.

However in a baffling twist just one day later, Craig shocked both Lydia and viewers at home by tracking her down to her home and making contact again.

Admitting he had taken Lydia’s address from her CV, Craig even acknowledged he knew this was a serious data breach as he sought to desperately reconnect with his first love.

Bafflingly, Lydia was prepared to hear him out and rebuild her friendship with Craig, however he appeared to have romantic intentions in mind, as he told her he “would’ve given up everything for a chance at a life with her.”

Fans at home were shocked by Craig’s arrival, with many viewers finding his behaviour to be exceedingly “creepy” and even bordering on “stalkerish.”

Fearing for the mild mannered cleaner’s safety, several viewers took to social media to share their thoughts on the strange reunion.

One fan wrote: “I think Lydia might have a problem with him, he’s found out where she lives…”

A second then added: “Oh, oh. Watch yerself, Lydia. He looks like the Yorkshire Ripper to me.”

Before a third commented: “Is Craig Lydia’s stalker? He rocks up at her home. Sam won’t be pleased.”

While a fourth didn’t hold back as they simply wrote: “I don't trust Craig at all.”

A fifth viewer even weighed in as they added: “This guy is love bombing, will soon make up a reason to make him dependent on Lydia’s friendship & slowly start controlling her…. Tale As Old As Time.”
