Emmerdale viewers were stunned during Tuesday’s episode after spotting Dr Liam Cavanagh had a love bite after a night of passion with nurse Wendy Posner.
On Monday, the heat was turned up in the Dales as Dr Liam (Jonny McPherson) and Wendy (Susan Cookson) shared a passionate kiss at the surgery, while across the village Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) attempted to lock lips with Wendy’s long-term partner Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) over a bottle of wine.
Returning to work at the surgery after their rendezvous, Wendy panicked as she realised news of her dalliance could get out amongst her neighbours, and back to Bob.
During a fraught discussion with Dr Liam outside the surgery, his love bite was clearly visible on his neck, prompting viewers to take to Twitter to express their shock.
One person wrote: ‘Hahahahaha …A love bite! Is that still a thing?….or is it just me.’
