Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale villain Tom King falls out with Vanessa Woodfield next week as tensions rise at the vets surgery.

Tom's manipulative behaviour rears its ugly head again as he's called out for making a mistake at work.

The problems arise when Tom messes up by diagnosing an elderly dog with cancer without conducting the necessary tests first.

Vanessa and Paddy Dingle intervene just in time. Vanessa organises the correct blood tests and correctly diagnoses that the dog just has an abscess.

The animal's owner is left furious over the mix-up and heads out, leaving Tom unhappy over how things went.

Rather than accept blame for what happened, Tom plays the victim by claiming that Vanessa makes him feel unwelcome at the practice.

Vanessa is baffled by Tom's criticisms as they've always got along well until now.

The scenes pave the way for Emmerdale's recently-announced special episode focusing on Tom, Belle, Marlon Dingle and Rhona Goskirk.
