EMMERDALE fans called out a glaring error as a private investigator took photographs of Jimmy King at the scrapyard in full view.
Aaron and Mack had stolen Jimmy’s van for a dodgy deal involving stolen TVs.
But as they returned it to the scrapyard during last night’s episode, they were forced to face Jimmy’s wrath.
With Jimmy’s haulage business already struggling thanks to Juliette Holliday’s underhand tactics, he was in a spin.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing. I thought my van had been nicked,” he raged.
Aaron calmly said: “I just needed a bigger van, Jimmy. I got a last minute deal on some scrap.”
But Jimmy was having none of it and looked in horror at Mack, before asking if he’d driven.
“I only went with him because I knew the guy he was dealing with,” Mack butted in.
Jimmy moaned: “I had a job on. I had to ring them and tell them I couldn’t do it because my only available van had been nicked. Do you have any idea how much I needed that work today. Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t phone the police right now.”
Mack then whispered to Aaron: “Don’t you think we should tell him about cutting him in.”
He turned to Jimmy and said: “Let’s just talk about the money and we can all go home happy, right.”
It was then that the private investigator popped up a few metres away from them and started taking photographs of Jimmy receiving Mack’s money.
Viewers were quick to point out the fact that the investigator was in full view.
One said: “@emmerdale Can’t stop laughing at the photographer “spying” on Jimmy in full line of sight. Also him taking notes in clear view in the Cafe. Come on! Step it up a notch!”
Another added: “@emmerdale so Aaron and Jimmy blind now?”
A third chimed in: “Are you telling me that from the angle Steve, the investigator was taking the photo from, no one could see him. #emmerdale”
Next week, Jimmy will find himself in grave danger when Mack rings him to tell him that Nicola is in trouble with the private investigator who’s been spying on them.

Jimmy leaps into his van and kicks into gear but just as he’s about to rush off to Nicola’s aid, Amy rings and innocently asks if Juliette can take the kids.
Jimmy sees red and says he’ll come and get them but as he speeds off in his truck, he struggles to breathe and as he turns a corner, he’s blinded by the glare of the sun.
Disaster strikes as Jimmy loses control, bracing himself for impact.
