Emmerdale has teased the explosive storylines coming up this summer.

The soap has promised "heartbreaking scenes" ahead for the villagers as a series of dramatic events unfold.

Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley), Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh), Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter), Ellis Chapman (Asan N'Jie), Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) and Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) are the characters who will have key storylines over the coming months.

Robert's life is at risk as he continues to pursue revenge against Lee Posner, while Tracy's life is in danger when the Sharma's factory catches on fire.

Meanwhile, Nate and Moira look to be embarking on an affair behind Amy and Cain's backs.

Amy also has her own problems as she focuses on winning custody of Kyle as her relationship with her sister Kerry reaches an all-time low.

Ellis will be visited by a figure from his past who will cause the entire village trouble when they decide to make Emmerdale their home.

And Dawn will find herself tangled in a web of lies.

Producer Laura Shaw said: "We have Sharma drama as a fire rips through the factory. It's caused by two of our villagers who are up to no good behind Jai and Rishi's backs.

"Unbeknown to anyone, Tracy is trapped in the factory, and as the fire takes hold there's a huge explosion.

"Will Tracy get out in time? It's safe to say there are heartbreaking scenes ahead for the villagers, and Tracy's life will never be the same again."

Emmerdale airs weeknights on Virgin Media One and ITV.
