Emmerdale's Nicky Miligan faces an uncertain future next week as he's injured in a car crash alongside Ethan Anderson.

Nicky and Ethan are travelling to pick up Suni Sharma when disaster strikes on the road.

The drama begins when Suni visits a bar and spots one of the men who was involved in the homophobic attack on him last year.

Suni calls his boyfriend Nicky to let him know. Nicky is keen to drive there, but Ethan points out that he has drunk too much and offers to get behind the wheel instead.

During the journey, Ethan notices a police car up ahead on the road. He starts to worry about being over the limit himself, so he turns around to avoid passing the police.

Tensions mount in the car when Nicky suddenly struggles to get hold of Suni on the phone.

Ethan then loses control of the vehicle altogether and a shocking crash leaves him and Nicky unconscious.

Ethan is first to regain consciousness and he pulls Nicky from the car. When Ethan spots another vehicle approaching, he rushes off into the distance and watches as Moira Dingle finds Nicky unconscious.

Fearful of how this could affect his reputation and his legal career, Ethan flees from the scene.

Emmerdale's producer Laura Shaw first teased this storyline earlier this month – refusing to confirm whether the victim would live or die.

Shaw told Digital Spy and other press at the time: "We're going to see an accident happen that's going to affect two big family groups.

"It's going to connect those two family groups together, and we're going to see somebody in very serious medical jeopardy.

Emmerdale airs these scenes on Thursday, May 9.

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
