Emmerdale fans watched in horror as Cathy Hope was nearly killed in Friday night’s episode.
The troubled teen, who has been struggling with mood swings, manic episodes, and heavy periods for months, stole a bottle of whiskey and decided to climb the wall of the bridge, only to nearly lose her footing.
Cathy’s reckless behavior was a desperate cry for help, with her father Bob (Tony Audenshaw) and Dr. Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) arriving on the scene at just the right time.
Fans took to Twitter to praise Emmerdale for the episode, saying it would have created terrifying memories for Dr. Liam when his daughter Leanna was killed by Meena Jutla on the bridge.
One viewer wrote: “Good as always. Please can I say how well Emmerdale is dealing with mental health issues? Especially Bob with his daughter Cathy. Well done everyone.”

“Amazing scenes tonight, Gabrielle is a wonderful actress and I can’t wait to see more of Cathy’s story on screen,” another fan wrote.
Bob has been having trouble noticing his daughter Cathy’s deteriorating mental state, centered around the reopening of the B&B with her business partner Bernice.
Recent episodes have seen Cathy played by Gabrielle Dowling, struggling with heavy periods, and after confiding in Bernice, Manpreet prescribed The Pill.
However, Cathy’s erratic behavior has gotten worse and worse, especially after Bob lost his temper and admitted that he’d rather she stay away from the B&B.
He yelled: ‘I’m on red alert most of the time. Afraid of what is going to upset you or make you lose your temper next.
