Who will be believed in the soap trial?

Emmerdale Pierce

Emmerdale is gearing up for a big week in court as Pierce Harris goes to trial for abusing Rhona Goskirk.

The estranged couple will face a legal battle after Rhona (Zoe Henry) reported Pierce (Jonathan Wrather) for raping her after their wedding and for his long-running campaign of abuse during and following their relationship.

Rhona suffers a tense first day in court as she breaks down over the stress of the trial while Pierce seems to be successfully painting himself as a falsely accused victim.

In a last-ditch attempt to wring some justice from her case, Rhona bravely corners Pierce and threatens him with the lengths she will go to in making sure he is convicted of his crimes.

But although her ex finally starts to look worried, will he tell the truth when questioned under oath, or will he get away with his treatment of Rhona?
