The most recent episode of Emmerdale distracted viewers as Tony Audenshaw’s Boby Hope discussed his most recent medical prognosis.
The ITV soap’s fan favorite collapsed recently and needed to be taken to the hospital.
When he saw his partner Wendy Posner (Susan Cookson) with Dr. Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson), he got angry because he thought they were still having an affair.
The village doctor had to use a defibrillator to save Bob’s life when he had a heart attack after punching Liam.
Bob ultimately underwent stent surgery, and it was later discovered that he had erectile dysfunction.
On Thursday, August 16, when Eric Pollard visited Bob in the hospital, his friend spoke openly about the situation.
Bob sought to allude to his ED diagnosis by saying to Eric, “My trusty sword has failed me.”
The funny scene left viewers of the ITV serial at home in stitches, and they flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, to discuss it.
One admirer wrote: “Bob’s ‘trusty sword’… Oh my God, stop torturing yourself like this.
Another person added “Bob’s trusty sword” and smiley faces.
“My trusty sword failed me,” read the message from a third user.Although I should restrain myself, that sentence from “Emmerdale” made me giggle.
A fourth person on social media chimed in: “Trusty sword? Yay! The pig sword of destiny is back! #emmerdale.
After Wendy visited Bob and informed him she didn’t care about sex, the two decided to try their relationship again.
Bob was devastated when he discovered Wendy’s relationship with Liam in recent scenes.
After discovering a hidden message, Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) realized the doctor and nurse were having an affair.
