This reaction also left its mark on fans who believed Tracy “deserved better,” labelling her other half a “moron”.
One said: “Nate reverting to form. Tracy sure hasn’t had much luck picking them for years now. Considering how she came into #Emmerdale all those years ago, it’s a complete 180?”
Another wrote: “Omg Nate telling Tracy it’s her problem, what a loser… #Emmerdale.”
“Catching up with tonight’s #Emmerdale and Nate’s an absolute moron! Tracy totally deserves so much better than him he’s boring,” agreed a third.
Will Nate decide to step up for his girlfriend or will she be forced to go it alone if he shuns responsibility and leaves her for good?
Emmerdale airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm on ITV.
