Emmerdale's Dan's exit 'sealed' amid more devastating news after Lloyd death

Emmerdale's Dan Spencer's life was turned upside down again on Friday night as he received more devastating news after Lloyd's death. Fans will recall that Dan recently landed himself in serious trouble with the law after he punched his daughter Amelia Spencer's online stalker, Lloyd, which resulted in the latter being left in a coma in a hospital with a serious head injury.

Dan, who has been arrested and charged over the incident, headed to court on Thursday where he pleaded guilty to the charges against him in a shocking twist. However, what Dan didn't realise, is at the exact same time he pleaded guilty in court, Lloyd was pronounced dead in hospital.

On Friday's episode, Dan was taken to the police station where he was told Lloyd died due to a rebleed on the brain from the injury Dan had originally given him. He was then officially charged with "unlawfully killing" Lloyd, "contrary to common law".

He later told Amelia that he had been charged with manslaughter, he added: "I have to face up to the fact that one way or another, I'm going to prison. According to my solicitor, between three and eight years... it's okay love, I'll be fine, I can get through anything as long as I've got you and Esther."

It comes as Emmerdale's Dan star, Liam Fox, has teased a potential exit for his character, Amelia (Daisy Campbell) and baby Esther. Next week will see Amelia and Dan decide to go on the run with her daughter Esther in order to remain together as a family after their life was turned upside down by her stalker Lloyd.

Worrying about her father's future and the serious prison sentence he could face after Lloyd's death, Amelia suggests they go on the run to Ireland in order to stay as a family. Seeing his daughter's fear and being overwhelmingly scared of prison, Dan comes round to the idea of running away and he asks Cain Dingle for help fleeing the country.

Later, Cain presents Dan and Amelia, who have been warned not to tell anyone - not even boyfriend Noah Dingle, with ferry tickets, an old car and a burner phone for their escape to Ireland. As everything becomes very real for the father and daughter, they share a sad smile about leaving Emmerdale and set off as a three with Esther. But have they made the right decision and is this the last viewers have seen of them?

Talking about the upcoming storyline with the press, including The Mirror, Dan star Liam, 53, said of whether this is the last fans see of Dan and Amelia: "Who knows, who knows? Maybe for a bit or maybe not at all. I don't know. There's going to be some changes there without a shadow of a doubt, we'll have to wait and see won't we I guess!"
