Emmerdale fans left with same burning question as Eric forced to look after Cathy and Heath

EMMERDALE fans were all left with the same thought as Eric was left with no choice but to look after twins Cathy and Heath.

The youngsters returned to the soap last week to cause trouble for the businessman.

The twins have been raised by their father Bob Hope and his former partner Brenda, after their mother Viv died in an explosion in 2011.

However, Bob has recently been spending more time with new beau Wendy, meaning the twins are usually with Brenda but when she is busy running the café, her partner Eric has been forced to look after Cathy and Heath.

This has left Emmerdale fans scratching their heads as to why Bob is not taking more parental responsibility.

One bemused fan tweeted: “Where is Bob?! Brenda always with Bob children where his he? #emmerdale.”

Another less than impressed viewer wrote: “Why isn’t Bob looking after his own nasty brats #emmerdale.”

While a third added: “Why do Kathy & Heathcliffe (kids of Viv & Bob) live with Brenda & Eric???? #emmerdale.”

The twins have been played by Gabrielle and Sebastian Dowling – who are twins in real life – since 2007.

They haven’t been on screen for months after younger characters temporarily stopped filming during the coronavirus pandemic and the pair now look more grown up.

The twins returned with trouble on their minds as they gave Eric a torrid time upon their return on Friday January 5.

They pranked him in a series of cruel videos, before replacing Eric’s specialist spray with a harmful substance which he was using to clean an antique.

Cathy then picked up the ornament and made fun of it before she shockingly dropped it.

Eric saw red and threw her phone to the ground in a moment of madness and shattered the screen in the process.
