EMMERDALE’S Ben Tucker is set to be framed for Andrea Tate’s death in a horrifying twist.

Things go from bad to worse for Ben (Simon Lennon) as the fall out from the maze fire and bridge collapse continues.

Andrea (Anna Nightingale) was left to burn after she was beaten to death by serial killer Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu).

Unfortunately, Meena's deed is yet to be discovered, with HOP at the centre of investigations for their mismanagement of the survival week event.

And with Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) left worried about a health and safety inspection at the outdoor pursuits centre, he decides to take matters into his own hands, decidng that he want co-owner Ben to take the fall for the disaster.

Meanwhile, a journalist is sniffing around the cafe and asks Brenda about the bridge collapse on the survival challenge.

When Brenda later explains to Ben she’s spoken to a journalist Ben knows it’s bad news.

He attempts to tell Jai about what’s going on he is at first too preoccupied to listen.

But when Ben finally informs him of the investigative journalist, privately, Jai hatches a sickening plan to save himself.

He decides to blame it all on Ben – however when Laurel finds out what he’s going to do she’s utterly horrified.

It’s not long before Ben realises what Jai’s trying to do – implicating him in the blame for all that went wrong.

Jai tries to offer Ben a buy-out in exchange for his resignation, but Ben decides he needs a lawyer.

When Ben briefs Aaron and Liv on what’s happened, they quickly recognise their level of legal help won’t be a match for Jai’s.

On Jai's shocking plan, actor Chris Bisson said: "The journalist being involved is serious for Jai.

"It’s not long since we had a shooting at the HOP. It’s not got a great record of safety in that sense so he’s having a bit of a PR nightmare.

"It’s bad for business. He doesn’t want the journalist sniffing around."

He added: "From the HOP perspective, Ben has signed off all of the risk assessments so that’s the next person in the firing line.

"There’s a pecking order for who he’s going to go for first. Obviously, he’s at the very back of that queue.

"He does have this card to play which is to pin it on Ben because he signed the risk assessments on behalf of the business."
