In upcoming scenes on Emmerdale, Faith Dingle’s (Sally Dexter’s) health will continue to deteriorate. After receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis earlier this year, the character is living on borrowed time. In a heartbreaking plotline, she has asked Moira Dingle (Natalie J. Robb) to aid in her death even though her children insist on organizing hospice care for her.
Faith is relieved that Moira has not revealed her plans to end her life to her husband Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) in yet-to-air scenes.

When her daughter-in-law realizes what she has committed to doing for Faith, she is left in a state of terror.
Will Moira actually help Faith with her heartbreaking request?
It wouldn’t be the first time a Dingle had to ask a family member for assistance during a difficult time.
Fans of Emmerdale will remember how Sam Dingle, played by James Hooton, was inconsolable when his wife Alice, played by Ursula Holden-Gill, passed away from terminal cancer.
Soon after the birth of their son Samson Dingle (Sam Hall), she passed away after Sam assisted her in taking an overdose of morphine.
Even though the police were looking into the circumstances surrounding her death, Sam never received a prison sentence.
Sam and his current partner Lydia Hart frequently pay homage to Sam’s late wife’s grave by decorating it with flowers (Karen Blick).
In 2018, Sam admitted to Lydia that he played a part in his late wife’s demise, but Lydia stuck by him.
