Emmerdale’s Nicola star teases identity of her victim after horror attack
Emmerdale's Nicola King is due to lash out at a rather unexpected victim next week, as she struggles to cope with the aftermath of her attack.
She was brutally beaten by a group of teenage girls in a multi-storey car park, which has left her too terrified to leave the house.
But next week, she's forced to go on the school run and gets so worked up in the car that she careens right into David Metcalfe's van, leaving him fuming about the insurance claim when she runs straight back into the house and barricades herself inside.

What results is a desperate attempt to keep son Carl off school after he gets a tummy bug – but things don't quite go to plan, as she ends up attacking an anonymous victim who comes to the front door.
But who is it?
Speaking to Daily Star and other press, actress Nicola Wheeler said: "Nicola gets into the car and it appears that everything is okay – she’s in the car, she’s got a grip.
"All she has to do is drive to the school and pick the kids up and get back home. But what starts to happen is, she starts to relive the attack, it just creeps in. She becomes out of control, unfortunately slams her foot onto the accelerator and hits the back of David’s car."
The star explained: "David is understandably cross, he comes out and shouts at her, because it was clear he was coming out.
"But Nicola's focus had turned inward, into her head – she was reliving the attack. So David shouts, because he’s got his own stresses going on and doesn’t realise the effect he’s having on her, and she says I’ll go and get insurance documents and bring them over… but she goes inside and locks herself away."
What transpires next leads to more horror in the Dales, with Nicola determined to keep Carl home from school to avoid the outside world.
While searching for chocolate to placate him, Carl manages to grab Nicola's phone and run outside, leaving Nicola frantic at the thought of following him.
She's in full panic mode when she hears girls laughing outside, bracing for the fight of her life as her attackers return.
And she hits someone over the head in her terror.
It results in a few potential victims – the girls laughing outside, her pal Laurel who witnessed the crash, and David, determined to get Nicola's contact details. Or is it husband Jimmy, checking in on Nicola between work breaks?
Nicola Wheeler continued: "She’s basically having a complete crisis attack – it starts as a panic attack, because again she starts to flash back to what happened with the girls, and obviously she doesn’t realise it’s not them.
"She hears laughing in the street and she goes into full attack mode. Nicola has to run out into the garden to catch Carl and that sets her off. She starts to hyperventilate and she just spirals. It’s a day of chaos and it all gets too much."
Only time will tell who Nicola hits – and whether they will be okay.
