David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) sees a chance to make some of his money worries disappear in upcoming Emmerdale episodes, as he takes advantage of a car accident to try and get compensation.
The accident comes about when Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) accidentally drives into his van. Nicola has been struggling with anxiety ever since she was beaten up by a gang of girls in a car park and can barely bring herself to leave the house. She’s forced to go out to pick up her kids but as she gets in the car she’s overwhelmed by panic and floors the accelerator, crashing into David’s van as she does so.
David has been struggling with money worries ever since he revealed that the shop hasn’t been doing well. He had to sack Kerry (Laura Norton) to save money, but with his wedding to Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) being planned he’s still desperate for cash.
So he decides to pretend he was badly hurt in the collision with Nicola to get as much money out of her insurers as possible.
Brenda (Lesley Dunlop) warns him against taking advantage of Nicola while she’s so vulnerable – but a desperate David refuses to listen.
