Charity Dingle is facing a backlash from her family for reporting Noah's stalking to the police in Emmerdale.

Last week's flashforward week capped off with Charity deciding to go to the police once she found evidence that her son had been spying on former girlfriend Chloe Harris.

While Charity unquestionably did the right thing, she is now facing pushback from the other Dingles because of their long-standing rule to handle problems within the family.

Noah initially showed remorse for his actions, but his dark side emerged once again in Monday's (May 16) episode because he'd been arrested.

Charity showed up at the police station asking Harriet to tell Noah she'd be "here for him", but Noah was alarmed when the police warned him to confess everything before the case went to court.

"I never meant it to go this far," Noah begged. "I'd never hurt Chloe."

The gravity of the situation hit Noah when he was shown evidence of his stalking and was quizzed on whether he'd ever asked for consent for everything he'd done. Noah had to admit he'd never done so.

Once he was temporarily released, Noah was furious to find out his mum had been the one to turn over the laptop to the police.

Charity confided in Mack that she loves Noah but "hates what he's done" because she's been in the same position as Chloe. She later walked in on Cain giving Noah an earful as he complained about Charity turning him in.

"[We've done] nothing like this," Cain told Noah while defending Charity.

Noah insisted he'd be staying with Cain, angrily telling her: "Back off, you two-faced cow. I hate you. I wish you were dead."

After Noah stormed off, Cain turned the tables to accuse Charity of "a new low" by going to the police about her son. Cain warned Charity she may have "cost our lad his future".

Will the Dingles come around and see Charity did the right thing?
