All Things Lesbian Social Network Too!

What?! A lesbian romance on prime time TV?!

You heard right, ladies. But I'm afraid if you're not living in the UK, it's bad news.

Network television soap Emmerdale recently announced that the relationship between Debbie Dingle (played by Charley Webb) and Jasmine Thomas (Jenna-Louise Coleman) is due to be rekindled in 2009. The couple previously shared a fling, (not off-screen, unfortunately) which ended - like many gay and lesbian storylines - because of the fact that the pair realized they 'weren't lesbians'.

No one can be certain whether the romance will last this time round, but if you live elsewhere, do not despair, I'm sure if the relationship really kicks off, there'll be one or two clips and fan videos on YouTube.

I was really pleased upon hearing this, not only because both girls are incredibly gorgeous, but also because there really is a lack of gay and lesbian characters on TV, especially on prime time. Yes, if you can't believe your ears, Emmerdale isn't even a cable show, it's always been prime time.

So if you can't contain your excitement, check back here to see whether anything ground-breaking happens between Debbie (below) and the lovely Jasmine.

unfortunately, I've heard that although the two will get back together, they're running away from the village.

So although the relationship will exist, I doubt ITV will be airing any of it.

Ahh at least it's a storyline though!
