EMMERDALE fans are thrilled as Faith Dingle bagged £1k after cashing in on evil Paul Ashdale’s old bets.
The now deceased gambling addict continues to leave a mark on those in the village despite his death last week.
Faith has suffered of late but things are finally turning around for her
Faith is having a hard time after she was kicked out by new parents Tracy Metcalfe and Nate Robinson.
After trying to reason with the pair and hoping they would let her stay, Cain arrived and gave his mother time to leave, otherwise he would “chuck her out himself.”
When her best attempts to get back with old flame Eric Pollard backfired, she turned up outside the Dingles house where she met Sam.
He brought out some bags with Paul’s things inside and Faith, who is always looking for a next opportunity, began to rummage through one of Paul’s jackets once Sam had gone back inside.

She discovered some of his old betting sheets and called the betting shop to find out if she won anything, which to her amazement, she did.
Up to her old tricks, Faith told the shop: “Sorry to bother you but I have been ill and I haven’t been able to get into the betting shop for quite a while, I just wanted to check on some of the races on the 27th March at Haydock park.”
After being unsuccessful with the horses Monty Mayhem and Twister Sister, Faith would find out she had secured herself £1,000 after the final horse Paul bet on named Tumbleweed, won its race.
A shocked Faith said: “Oh it won? By my reckoning that means you owe me £1000? Okay I’ll be along maybe some time this afternoon to pick it up then”, before she done a little jig in celebration.

Fans were impressed with her hustle
Twitter viewers commended Faith for securing money on Paul’s bets and gaining some sort of revenge on him for all his devious acts.
One fan wrote: “Faith Dingle’s hustle in a day inspires me.”
A second penned: “Ahh that’s something half decent you’ve done there for once ain’t it? Good for you.”
While a third added: “Ahh it’s the best kind of drama.”
