Lydia confronts rapist Craig as he makes sick move in Emmerdale | The Sun

LIFE is looking more bleak than ever for Lydia Dingle as she tries to overcome her rape ordeal.

But when Craig Reed continues to intimidate her, the Emmerdale favourite played by Karen Blick takes a stand.

Craig Reed (played by Ben Addis) raped Lydia Dingle after manipulating her into believing his intentions with her were pure.

To top it all off, he has been trying to make her believe she had given him consent while she clearly never did.

ITV viewers were heartbroken to see the kind and warm character become a shell of herself after the ordeal as she keeps quiet.

Meanwhile, Craig uses a star struck Samson Dingle (Sam Hall) to get under her skin and her husband Sam (James Hooton) has become just as admiring of the CEO as his young son.

Coming up, Sam makes a last-ditch effort to reconcile with Lydia before going to Ireland but she can’t reciprocate.

As she covers her heartbreak, he feels like she’s pushing him away.

Craig continues to use Samson as a means to increase the tension in the Dingle household as he peppers the teen with questions about Lydia’s relationship with Sam.
