SAMSON Dingle has been blackmailing his cousin Noah, pretending to take an interest in his own daughter Esther in order to get wealthy.
But reality catches up with the Emmerdale lad when the baby suffers from a major health problem.
The troubled teen portrayed by Sam Hall has been adamant on living his life despite being a father and treated baby Esther as a nuisance.
However, he's found a way to make a huge profit by using her to trigger Noah Dingle's (Jack Downham) insecurities, unbeknownst to Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) who believes he's finally warming up to their baby.
Next week on ITV, Amelia is pleased to see Samson take more of an interest in Esther.
Unfortunately, while he's babysitting, Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill) notices Esther has a burning temperature.

Panicked, the pair call an ambulance to take her to hospital and Samson is praised by Dan Spencer (Liam Fox) for his fast reaction to Esther's predicament.
Secrets don't remain under wraps forever in the eponymous village and, soon enough, Samson is thrown in the doghouse.
Noah hates the praise his scheming cousin is receiving for "saving" Esther as he knows he's only spending time with the baby to get money out of him.
Later on, Samson arrives under false pretences to check on Esther – but instead, he demands more money from Noah to stay out of both Amelia and her baby's life.
