Emmerdale fans have "worked out" who will bring Craig (Ben Addis) to justice after he raped Lydia.
Lydia, played by Karen Blick, has been struggling in recent weeks after she was assaulted by her childhood friend and refused to open up about her ordeal. After finally revealing the truth to Kim (Claire King), Lydia revealed all to the rest of the Dingles, including her husband Sam (James Hooton).
During Thursday's (October 12) instalment of the ITV soap, Sam headed to Craig's office to confront him. He was later joined by Lydia and Mandy (Lisa Riley) while Craig continued to lie about raping Lydia, insisting it was "consensual".

Taunting Lydia, Craig continued: "I'm only sorry that we can't be friends. I was really enjoying getting to know you again. I'll never forget you though. What we had, it was special.
After Craig threatened to call the police, Lydia warned: "Go on then, call them… call the police and I'll tell them everything. You're a rapist and I am going to make damn sure you go to prison."
During the confrontation, fans were introduced to Craig's receptionist, Ruth. Insisting he was innocent of what he was being accused of, Craig asked: "Ruth, you know me. Have I ever made you feel uncomfortable or threatened in all these years?"
She responded: "No, nothing like that." Despite Ruth backing Craig, fans believe she is lying and could be the key to bringing him down for good.
Rushing to share their thoughts online, one person wrote: "Anyone else got the feeling Craig has also raped the receptionist #Emmerdale." Another viewer added: "I reckon the receptionist knows exactly what he is!"
A third agreed: "I think so she’ll step in at the last minute and back Lydia up." Someone else penned: "I think he’s done it to her too but is too frightened to say.
Echoing this, a fifth person shared: "I think Ruth is lying for Craig, could be a victim too #Emmerdale." While another fan pointed out: "Ruth looks petrified of Craig. I think he made a move on her as well. #Emmerdale."
