For weeks now, Emmerdale viewers have been wondering who on Earth Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) has been speaking to behind fiancée Priya Sharma's (Fiona Wade) back.
Fans have been sharing their theories online, with speculation that the mystery woman could be a secret daughter or even Kim Tate (Claire King).
But Emmerdale spoilers have revealed that the identity will be revealed on Christmas Day, with viewers finding out after a number of village ladies get mysterious text messages.
This week, viewers will see Al's son Ellis (Aaron Anthony) on the hunt to try and find out who the woman his dad is having an affair with is.
Next week, Priya is set on her decision to have Al all to herself over Christmas.
But Al can't help stealing himself away to send one final message to the mystery woman, delighted at the sneaky game he's managing to get away with.
On Christmas Day, Al surprises Priya with an expensive necklace, one that matches her daughter Amba's, for her Christmas present.
But he's eager to get away to meet his mistress, so comes up with an excuse.
With it then being clear that Al's mystery woman is nearby, three suspects are revealed to viewers.
Andrea Tate (Anna Nightingale), Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) and Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) all receive mysterious text messages.
But who could Al's secret other lover actually be?
All is soon revealed – and it's sure to leave viewers with their jaws on the floor.
Emmerdale has been laying the groundwork for an Al affair, as viewers saw him enjoying some one-on-one time with Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) earlier this year.
However while Chas hinted she'd like to spend more time alone with Al, he made it clear it was a bad idea.
But could they have secretly carried on seeing each other away from prying eyes of the villagers?
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays, on ITV
