EMMERDALE fans have branded the show “unrealistic” after Jessie returned to work just ONE week after being shot and left for dead.
The headmistress – played by Sandra Marvin – was shot by her son Billy’s former prison pal Max after he took her and Marlon hostage in their own home.
She looked like she had been left for dead and was seen bleeding out on the floor – but now she has made a miraculous recovery.
Jessie was shot after gangster Max turned up at her and Marlon’s home with a gun, looking for her son Billy after discovering he had tipped off the police about the van robbery.
Billy raced home when he realised what was happening, and sneaked into the house to confront his former prison pal.
As they wrestled each other in the living room, Billy managed to get Max to drop the gun, with the weapon skidding across the floor.
Billy then repeatedly punched Max, thinking he had knocked him out, while Jessie and Marlon stood nearby.
Jessie then hugged her son, while the gun still lay on the ground, meaning Max was able to weakly grab it an lift it in time to shoot Jessie in the stomach.
But despite being critically hurt she is back to work, just a week later.
This left fans baffled by her quick recovery.
One tweeted: “
#Emmerdale If I ever get sick, beheaded or shot, can someone send me to the hospital in Hotten. Jessie was shot a week ago, on deaths door and now she’s up and about and even more strange going into school. She didn’t do that when she was well.”
While this one said: “Jessie up & about after being shot last week in the stomach… another quick recovery #Emmerdale”
Another commented: “Jessie is looking great for someone who has recently been shot! What is in the water in the village because it’s frankly miraculous #Emmerdale“
This one tweeted: “Someone must have been having a laugh that Jessie is out of hospital two days after being shot and has to go to the school. She doesn’t even do that when she’s fit and healthy #Emmerdale“
- Emmerdale continues weekdays from 7pm on ITV
