But will Eric die? Or will the character survive the crash?

Gaynor Faye, who plays Megan in the soap hinted at what will happen to Eric.

Speaking to metro.co.uk, she said: “It’s not so great.”

She continued: “Megan sees him being his usual shouty self and assumes he’s alright. She’s a practical person and thinks it’s just the car, so everything can be fixed. But it’s only later on that everything isn’t quite what it seems. That’s what triggers the guilt trip.”

Chris Chittell has not revealed any clues on the fate of his character.

Chris has been a character on Emmerdale for 32 years now, becoming the show’s longest running character.
