Emmerdale theory: Sandra Flaherty she flees with Liv’s savings in exit twist

In upcoming episodes, fans of the ITV soap will see Sandra Flaherty (Joanne Mitchell) successfully put a wedge between her daughter Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) and husband Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson). After plotting to take Liv’s life savings over the past few weeks, viewers could see her succeed after using alcohol to access her daughter’s ever-growing bank account.

New ITV spoilers reveal that next week Sandra and Liv return back from their holiday with Vinny shocked to discover a for sale sign is up outside of Mill Cottage.

Wasting no time in speaking to his wife, he admits to being upset that she’s decided to sell without consoling him first.

Wanting to cause a wedge between Liv and Vinny, Sandra is thrilled as she sees that her scheming is starting to work as the couple argue.

However, seeing through her facade, Mandy (Lisa Riley) tells her son that the reason he’s falling out with his wife is all down to Sandra.

Wanting to try and expose her for causing a wedge in her son’s marriage, Mandy recruits Jimmy (Nick Miles) to fake an interest in buying the cottage.

Although it all backfires when Liv discovers Mandy and Vinny recording Sandra’s responses trying to set her up.

Furious, she kicks him out of the house and is comforted by her mother who, despite being aware of her past addictions, suggests a drink.

Once she’s given into temptation, Liv starts to get loose-lipped on her ever-growing savings account.

Plying her with more alcohol to get further information, Liv eventually falls asleep with Sandra having all the access details she needs.

A theory by Express.co.uk suggests that once Liv wakes up, she’s shocked to discover her bank accounts have been completely cleared.

Trying to contact Sandra, as she’s the last person she remembers being with, the phone goes straight to voicemail as she’s nowhere to be found.

Learning that her mother’s belongings have also gone, Liv comes to the realisation that Sandra has left and has taken all of her money with her.

Despite their issues, Vinny and Liv set off trying to track Sandra down as they report the crime to the police.

Actor Bradley Johnson spoke about his hopes for Vinny and Liv as the series approaches its 50th anniversary.

He told Digital Spy: “Even though I’d love Liv and Vinny to live a happy-ever-after, there’s always something that comes between them.

“The storylines and scripts have been great. Jo [Mitchell, who plays Sandra] has added a real dynamic within that household.

“I’d like to think that Liv and Vinny can get through anything. Sandra is making that very difficult for them.”

With big storylines coming up for the show’s celebrations, it’s possible that viewers will see Liv slip back into old habits after being given alcohol by her mother.

What viewers do know is that a huge storm is set to take place in the upcoming weeks which will leave some of the residents in peril.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV

    Miles Teller says he breached protocol when meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton

    Miles Teller said he made a breach of protocol when crossing paths with the Duke and Duchess of Wales, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

    The 35-year-old actor, appearing Wednesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, opened up about meeting the royal pair in London at a Royal Film Performance screening for his film Top Gun: Maverick this past May.

    Teller, who played Lt. Bradley ‘Rooster’ Bradshaw in the film, said that he and his costars were given a list of ‘rules of dos and don’ts,’ joking, ‘There’s a lot of etiquette … and I kind of had a sheet so I wouldn’t mess it up.’

    But Teller made a miscue, as he said, ‘Right off the bat I messed up: You’re not supposed to extend your hand right off the bat unless they do.’

    ‘But I felt the vibe, so I’m like “I’m going in, I’m going in.”‘

    The Whiplash star credited the royal couple as being ‘very disarming’ in his meeting with them.

    ‘I was lost,’ he said. ‘In Prince William’s eyes … I mean, blue as the bluest ocean, Jimmy, what do you want? Bora Bora … and Kate is beautiful and very cordial and holds herself so well, yeah, regal … but with William I don’t know, I blacked out.’

    Teller said he thinks Prince William is ‘a lifelong fan now,’ adding, ‘I was just picking up what he was putting down.’

    Teller is set to host this week’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live on October 1, with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.

    The Banshees of Inisherin star Brendan Gleeson will host the following week, with Willow as musical guest; and Megan Thee Stallion will host and perform on the October 15 edition.

    How Richard Osman left his comfort zone and invented ‘cosy crime’

    The genial – and very tall – host of teatime quiz show Pointless, which he has presented with his chum Alexander Armstrong for ten years, has blown away would-be rivals with his new cosy crime novel, titled (ironically) The Bullet That Missed.

    The latest book in his mega Thursday Murder Club series sold a staggering 216,662 copies in its first three days – with hardback sales alone of 127,743 copies making it the fastest-selling British book since records began.

    You can almost hear the Champagne corks popping at his publishers though, in truth, it was always going to do well. Osman’s brilliant debut, about four pensioners busting crimes from their Kent retirement village, sold a million copies in seven months. Its sequel, The Man Who Died Twice, published in September last year, became one of the fastest-selling novels.

    Not a bad start for an idea that came to him fully formed in a flash while visiting his elderly mother in sheltered accommodation.

    Other loved ones he credits in the book are his two children from a relationship that long ago hit the buffers, Ruby, 24, and Sonny, 22, who get a special mention in the acknowledgements at the end. He is perfectly certain this will make them squirm. But he does not care.

    “It’s something they can turn to when they’re 40 or 50, a confirmation that their dad really loved them. I know they’re proud of me and I wanted to recognise that publicly. My father never once told me he loved me.”

    Osman was nine when he and his elder brother, Mat, were called into the living room and told by their father, David, that he was leaving home.

    “I think it’s safe to say that was the worst thing that’s ever happened to me,” he says today. Osman senior never had anything to do with his sons from that day on although he met Richard 20 years later when he became a grandfather.

    “I thought there might be something to salvage. But it proved to be a very underwhelming experience. We realised we didn’t know each other particularly well,” says Osman.

    “What a child needs is an adult in their life who loves them unconditionally. Some are lucky in that they have two. I had my mum and I count myself incredibly lucky that I had – still have – her.”

    The pensioner sleuths Brenda inspired – Elizabeth, a retired intelligence agent; Ron, an ex-trade unionist; former nurse Joyce, for whom no situation cannot be improved by getting out the biscuits; and ex-psychiatrist Ibrahim – set about solving murder mysteries.

    Their adventures have proved so addictive to readers that a Steven Spielberg film adaptation is currently in the works, directed by British Mamma Mia! creator Ol Parker. “I leave that world to be what it is. It’s a completely different discipline and not one I’ve ever proved myself in,” says Osman modestly.

    “What I am pleased about is that they plan to maintain the British setting with the references to Hobnobs and Oliver Bonas and Sainsbury’s, for example, remaining intact.”

    What about casting? “It’s not up to me and that’s quite as it should be,” he smiles. “That said, people occasionally shout “Helen Mirren” at me in the street, presumably as a suggestion for the role of Elizabeth. My belief is that I won’t know who’s playing which part until the lights dim at the premiere.”

    Osman has also spawned a new publishing phenomenon – so-called “cosy” crime. The Rev Richard Coles has recently joined the fray with his debut novel, Murder Before Evensong.

    “But I’m on the foothills of his Himalayas,” admits Coles. “I did ask him how to get through the enormous piles of books that needed my signature.” Osman’s advice? “Pop on a podcast and stop complaining!”

    After more than 1,300 episodes of Pointless, Osman has stepped down to concentrate on his writing career. The fourth book in the Murder Club series will be published in September next year with more to follow.

    And writing the books has proved easier and easier. Certainly the broadcaster did not suffer the notorious difficult second book syndrome.

    “I already had the four principal characters and it was pretty much written before the first one came out so I wasn’t distracted by all the hullabaloo,” he says. “That gave me the freedom to write what I wanted.”

    PD James reputedly would not put pen to paper until the very last piece of the jigsaw was fixed in her mind. Jackie Collins, by contrast, would open the yellow legal pad on which she wrote (longhand) and let her characters take her on a journey.

    Where does Osman sit on that spectrum? “Midway between the two. I know how the story starts, I know where I’m headed and I know how it ends. That said, my characters do take me on a journey. Ultimately, the fun is how you get from A to B. And I love a book where all the baddies get their just deserts.”

    One of the many charms of the books is that you can hear his very recognisable voice – that droll running commentary so familiar to TV viewers – on every page.

    “When my daughter read the very first draft of the first book, she told me that every single word of it sounded like it had been written by me. But then, I suppose it must be a good thing if you can establish an individual voice.”

    Osman is pleased, he says, that this phenomenal success happened when it did. “I’m 51. Much better for it to happen now than when I was, say, 19.

    “I became a TV presenter when I was 40 having been very happily behind the scenes working on programmes like Deal Or No Deal. Then along came Pointless and House Of Games and suddenly people started recognising me in the street.

    “But I’d become comfortable in my own skin by then. Success when you’re very young is a difficult thing because you still have a lot of life yet to live. And because success is weird, if you don’t have a good sense of yourself, it could turn your head a little.”

    Osman was born with nystagmus, a condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements often resulting in reduced vision and depth perception, affecting both balance and coordination.

    “It means I can’t drive because everything appears to me like a foggy day,” he explains. He wishes it were otherwise.

    “I could then watch football properly and see the birds in the trees and read people’s expressions correctly. But I’m not bitter. I’ve never known any different and there are plenty of people who have impediments far worse than mine.”

    His elder brother, Mat, is the bass guitarist in the Britpop band, Suede. It is quite unusual to have two siblings from the same family finding fame and fortune. “Highly unusual,” agrees Osman, “and sort of random because none of it runs in the family.”

    Never one to rest on his laurels, Osman will begin a new series of thrillers in 2024, starring a father and daughter-in-law duo who run their own private investigation agency which takes them around the world.

    “It will be a sort of Thursday Murder Club meets The Da Vinci Code,” he explains.

    All this seamless good fortune is further compounded by a happy turn of events in his private life. Actress and comedian Ingrid Oliver, 45 – she played Petronella Osgood in Doctor Who – was a guest on House Of Games and joined Osman and fellow contestant Matthew Pinsent for a drink after the show.

    It took Osman a while to realise she was flirting with him but a relationship swiftly followed. Now, she has moved into his west London house (with her pet, Liesl Von Cat) and the two will marry in December. The dedication in his latest book would bring a tear to a glass eye. “To Ingrid,” it reads. “I was waiting for you.”

    Karen Pirie star Lauren Lyle opens up on character’s background: ‘She’s kind of angry’

    Outlander star Lauren Lyle has gone from period drama to modern-day detective for her latest role in ITV’s Karen Pirie. Lauren portrays detective constable Karen Pirie who is tasked with reopening a cold case about a Scottish barmaid who was brutally murdered 25 years ago. Ahead of the gripping series being released, Lauren gave an insight into her character’s roots.

    Karen Pirie is an ITV adaptation of Val McDermid’s bestselling novel about a determined female detective assigned to work out who killed Rosie Duff.

    Karen is asked to lead the investigation which was brought to the surface by a podcaster who wants justice for murdered barmaid Rosie.

    Rosie’s lifeless body was discovered in a churchyard by three students who have grown up to become a university lecturer, an artist and a surgeon.

    Lauren’s no-nonsense character is desperate to crack the complicated case but she is burdened by a dark personal secret along the way.

    The Scottish actress recently opened up to Express.co.uk and other media about why her character comes across as “kind of angry”.

    Lauren explained: “First of all, she is she’s just a really underestimated determined young woman that is completely thrust upon something that she doesn’t expect.

    “And she knows she can do it but has no backing around her.”

    The force Karen is working with is predominantly male and she is left feeling deflated when she discovers she was assigned to lead the cold case as an inspector thought it would “look good” for a woman to spearhead it.

    To make matters harder for Karen, she has to work with the office funnyman Jason Murray, also known as Mint, (played by Chris Jenks) who appears to be more of a hindrance than a help at first.

    Lauren said: “It’s quite interesting to play someone who has no support around [her] but knows deep down that she’s the one that can do it.”

    “She’s kind of instinctive – she is kind of angry and instinctive,” Lauren said of Karen’s personality.

    “I think it really annoys the men she’s naturally good at her job – she’s just a really good detective because she is driven by what’s right.

    “And I think annoys a lot of the guys because they’re all for the men.”

    Reflecting on Karen’s professional relationship with Mint, the actress said the two characters are like aliens to one another.

    She wears casual clothes and a signature bum bag at all times whereas Mint wheres expensive suits to try and look the part.

    Lauren quipped: “I mean, she’s really odd and just marches around the office.”

    While Lauren said Karen doesn’t think before she speaks, the actress described the character as smart and determined.

    “I think a lot of the detectives on-screen are quite often like down and out guys or girls, women who have something else really difficult going on,” she added.

    “But [Karen] is a young person right at the beginning of a career ready to take on anything and is sort of like f**k everyone that will see otherwise.”

    George Clooney gazes at stunning wife Amal at event after insisting they’ve ‘never argued’

    George Clooney, 61, and his human rights lawyer wife Amal, told the world on CBS this week that they have never exchanged angry words with each other in their lives.

    George confirmed the fact to CBS Mornings in a joint interview with his other half, admitting: “It’s just been easy. Like the easiest thing in our lives by far. We’ve never had an argument,” before Amal verified the actor’s surprising statement to be true.

    Despite their 17 year age gap, the pair are clearly besotted with each other, and yesterday, the couple looked more loved up than ever as they attended an event at New York Public Library, courtesy of their Clooney Foundation for Justice.

    George has spoken admiringly of his wife’s work rescuing journalists from imprisonment or human rights abuses in countries ranging from Azerbaijan to Egypt, although he also cheekily admitted that she didn’t know how to boil an egg.

    Due to her background in human rights, starting a justice foundation together seemed to suit their interests perfectly.

    Amal looked stunning at the event as her thick and lustrous hair hung in bouncy waves above her shoulders, and she donned a gold dress embellished with silver fringing and crystals.

    The red-lipped, dark-haired beauty gazed with adoration at husband George, and he reciprocated the look of love while modelling a chic black suit, complete with a white shirt and a bow tie.

    Meryl Streep, 73, third wheels with daughter and husband Mark Ronson as trio hold hands

    Meryl Streep, 73, looked happier than ever as she stepped out for an awards show created by George and Amal Clooney’s Foundation for Justice, with her daughter – who was accompanied by husband Mark Ronson – by her side.

    Mark, famous for producing some of Amy Winehouse’s most famous tracks, including ‘Back to Black’, wore a black crushed velvet suit at the event, complete with a tiny bow tie, while Meryl also opted for an all-black outfit.

    The Devil Wears Prada star wowed as she proudly held hands with her daughter and new son-in-law, dressing to impress in wide leg trousers and a long-sleeved black top for a chic, yet understated, red carpet look.

    Meanwhile, Meryl’s daughter Grace stood in the middle between her mother and husband, standing out with an all-white floor length dress.

    The award-winning 36-year-old actress opted to follow in her mother’s showbiz footsteps by pursuing a career on-screen, and, among other accolades, she is known for her appearances in the American Horror Story: Freak Show series.

    Fern Britton breaks silence on Phil Vickery kiss as fans fear for her being ‘heartbroken’

    Fern Britton, 65, has broken her silence as reports claiming the star has been left “heartbroken and dumbstruck” left fans worried. It comes after her ex-husband Phil Vickery, 61, was spotted seemingly kissing her best friend Lorraine Stanton. The snaps emerged last night, just two years after the former couple’s divorce, with Fern’s pal Lorraine even enjoying a girls trip with the former This Morning presenter four months prior to her split with Phil.

    Phil was pictured in a public embrace with a woman, who is reportedly very close friends with Fern, with unearthed social media snaps documenting their close bond.

    Fern has since taken to Twitter to share her thoughts on the snaps to her 120,900 followers and set the record straight on what happened.

    She told concerned fans: “Good morning all. Just to clear up any concerns re @TheSun front page. It is not true.”

    Fern has not yet further elaborated on which particular detail of the story is false.

    This comes as a source came forward, claiming they knew Fern’s reaction to the kiss photos.

    They claimed of Fern’s emotions: “Fern finds the situation weird and awkward and has learned that Lorraine is clearly not a great mate.

    “She’s shocked and is struggling to process her mixed emotions.

    “On the one hand she had felt like she’d moved on from Phil but she hadn’t expected this new romance and it’s been hard to see”, the source added to the MailOnline.

    Express.co.uk has contacted representatives for Fern and Phil for comment.

    Fern and Phil announced they were ending their marriage in January 2020 after 20 years together.

    The statement read: “After more than 20 happy years together, [we] have decided to go our separate ways. We will always share a great friendship and our lovely children.

    “We would appreciate it if our privacy is respected at this time. Thank you for your continued kindness and support.”

    The couple share one daughter together called Winnie, who was born in 2001, with Phil also becoming a stepfather to Fern’s three children from her first marriage.

    Four months prior to Fern and Phil’s divorce, the presenter turned author posted snaps of a bike ride she had completed with friends, including Lorraine.

    Prior to this 2019 trip, there are plenty of pictures of the pair enjoying days out together, however, since the bike ride, the pals haven’t been pictured together recently.

    Fern still follows Lorraine’s Instagram page, with her bio reading: “Cherish your yesterday’s, dream your tomorrows, but live for today oh yes!”

    According to The Sun, who snapped the pictures of Phil and Lorraine, the pair were on a date and were seen leaving the hotel with their overnight bags, but Fern has now appeared to deny this.

    A friend close to Fern had previously claimed the publication: “They look like teenagers in love and that will be just so hurtful for Fern.

    “Behaving this way in public will feel like a betrayal.”

    The pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they reportedly stopped twice on the street to share a smooch.

    The pictures have emerged just weeks after Fern revealed to Prima Magazine that she wished she “persevered” to save her and Phil’s marriage.

    Reflecting on her tough, but amicable split, she said: “This new chapter has come at the right time for me. I don’t want to be the poster girl for separation, though, because a lot of people go through the same thing.

    “Often, the children leave home and you look at each other and go, ‘Ah, where do we go from here?’

    “I only wish I was the sort of person who could have persevered through that, but I couldn’t.”

Showbiz Emmerdale theory: Sandra Flaherty she flees with Liv’s savings in exit twist
