Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Emmerdale has killed off Charles Anderson's father Victor in a shocking cliffhanger.
Tuesday's (August 29) dramatic episode centered around Victor being suspected of stealing the family heirloom Manpreet was about to return to Jai Sharma.
When Jai turned up to pick up the necklace, they all realised it was missing and the first suspect was Charles' wayward father Victor.
Claudette pleaded her husband's case until she was horrified to find the necklace was indeed in Victor's pocket, leading Manpreet to call the police.
Victor went on a runner rather than face arrest from PC Swirling. Soon, Charles arrived home and was horrified to find out what his father may have done.
"Don't say I didn't want you. I knew this was coming," Charles told his mother. "Maybe you'll see him for what he really is now, finally?"
Charles set off to find his dad by heading to the church, where he noticed dad slumped over in one of the church pews.
The vicar bragged that he'd always seen his father for the trickster he is, but when he put his hand on Victor's shoulder, Charles realised his dad was dead.
Claudette soon entered and was trying to get Victor to go along to the police station before she too realised he was dead.
"No, I can't be. Not my Victor," Claudette cried out.
The soap had foreshadowed that Victor could die at any time when he revealed that he'd been diagnosed with an unruptured aneurysm, though Charles had suspected his dad was lying.
How will the family cope with this sudden and tragic death?
Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
