Emmerdale: Marlon’s stroke storyline

Last month, Mark’s character Marlon suffered a stroke and was taken into hospital.

Over the last few weeks he has been in hospital and started his recovery journey.

This week viewers saw him return home, however it didn’t go without issues.

Marlon’s daughter April was thrilled to be able to spend more time with her father.

However when she helped him take a drink of water, he began to choke and she was terrified, thinking her father was having another stroke.

Rhona helped him but April was scared thinking she hurt her dad.

Marlon began to worry he was disrupting his daughter’s life and debated going back to hospital to continue his recovery.

However the two had an emotional conversation and April begged her dad not to go back to hospital.
