Emmerdale: Liv Flaherty kisses best friend Gabby Thomas in shock scenes [ITV]
Emmerdale showed a kiss between Liv Flaherty and Gabby Thomas, paving the way for an upcoming asexuality storyline.
For months, viewers have watched as the teen, played by Isobel Steele, has failed to show an interest in boys, despite the promptings of her best friend Gabby.
And in a past scene, she opened up to Belle Dingle about not fancying boys or girls, prompting speculation that the ITV soap is gearing up for an asexuality plot for the character.
However, Wednesday night’s episode further showed Liv’s confusion as she opened up to Gabby in the cricket pavilion while they waited to Jacob Gallagher to appear.

But as Gabby later put make-up on Liv after assuring her that her feelings will come soon, Liv surprised her by planting a kiss on her lips.
The teen immediately regretted her actions, apologising to her pal before running out.
