For the first time ever, Emmerdale will screen an hour long rewind episode to reveal who shot Robert Sugden.

The soap has announced a special episode to reveal the identity of the mystery assailant who shot Robert (Ryan Hawley) in the chest leaving him fighting for his life.

For its 43rd birthday, Emmerdale will go back in time for Robert Sugden storyline. October 2015.


The rewind episode will air at the end of October to tie in with the soap's 43rd birthday.

Producers tease that the episode "will reveal what really happened on that fateful night" and "three secrets will be revealed that will rock the village forever". Ooh!

Series producer Kate Oates said: "This won't be the first time Emmerdale has broken its 'house style' of storytelling; but it will be the first time we've told a story in a non-linear way.

"What makes this 'rewind' episode special is that we won't just learn who shot Robert, but two other big secrets that will propel the show into an exciting, emotional and dramatic winter."

Catch Emmerdale weekdays on ITV at 7pm, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
