Emmerdale fans were left shocked last night when Leyla Harding (played by Roxy Shahidi) confronted Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) over what she knows about Maya Stepney (Lousia Clein) grooming Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant).
Scenes which aired during the double bill showed the pair having an almighty argument about both of them retaining vital information which could bring Maya to legal justice.
Since there are now four people who know exactly what the school teacher has been up to, who is going to be the one to expose the truth fully?
During an interview with Digital Spy, actress Fiona Wade who plays Priya Sharma revealed a “life-changing” twist was in store for viewers next week.
Having spotted Maya kissing Jacob passionately outside the club, Priya informed her friends and between them, they devised a plan to get her into the car.
Viewers last saw Maya getting into the vehicle with Priya at the wheel, the only sober one on the night out who had taken on the role of the designated driver for the evening.
Joining up the dots, the four women headed into a forest where spoiler pictures have shown Maya dirty and disheveled emerging from the trees looking panicked.
But what exactly happened that night? Fiona said: “After driving off with Maya, Leyla initially told Priya to drive to the airport to find Jacob so they could speak to them both.
“They were not in a car going somewhere nice, the energy was very different and Maya suddenly picked up on that.
“Although Priya’s relationship with Jacob is slightly different to that of Leyla or Tracy [Metcalfe (Amy Walsh)], she was supporting the girls and also wanted to find out what the hell Maya had been doing with Jacob and what that kiss was all about.”
Referring to the flashback episodes she continued: “You see something has happened which has changed everyone’s lives forever. Something unexpected takes place and it’s the aftermath of that and the impact it has on the girls as individuals and on their friendships that we witness.”
What could Fiona be referring to? Viewers are still in the dark over what happened that night and there has been suspicion as to whether or not Maya is alive or dead.
Meanwhile, viewers are also going to find out exactly what happened to Ellis Chapman (Asan N’Jie).
During the Big Night Out last Thursday, he was stabbed and taken to hospital to receive emergency treatment.
After returning home earlier this week, the culprit is yet to be exposed.
However, there have been suggestions his brother Billy Fletcher (Jay Konztle) is to blame after being seen with a knife in his sock that same night Ellis was injured.
Official soap spoilers for next week’s instalments have suggested Billy will go on the run in fear of the truth coming out.
But he is quickly stopped and confesses what really happened that night to none other than Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller).
Scared he is going to lose his brother forever, Billy will have a heart-to-heart and tells Ellis everything he knows. Is he guilty?
