Emmerdale viewers predicted there could be issues for Nicola and Jimmy King after her secret phone call to Juliet.
Tonight Nicola and Jimmy feared that her son Carl had been kidnapped after his disappearance.
However, it later emerged that Carl had actually contacted his birth mother Juliette after receiving a note from her in the cafe with her number on it.
Juliette handed over her son Carl, whom she conceived after a confusion at the fertility clinic, to Jimmy in 2016 after being unable to care for him and left the Dales.
She has since returned and wants access to her son Carl – something neither Jimmy nor Nicola are happy about.

But after tonight’s drama and Juliette’s threats to go to court, Nicola wants to settle the situation amicably.
At the end of tonight’s episode, Juliette suggested that Nicola talk alone, without Jimmy.
Jimmy later insisted he won’t let Juliette play with her family, but Nicola secretly called Juliette and arranged to meet her.
And viewers believe it could cause a major rift between the bickering couple.
One of them tweeted with a squeaky emoji: “Nicola goes behind Jimmy’s back.”
While another commented: “Jimmy will go mad when he finds out Nicola called Juliet behind his back.”
A third wrote: “Why did Nicola do this behind Jimmy’s back? #Emmerdale.”
