Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) has been through a lot in Emmerdale recently – rehab to combat a cocaine addiction followed by the breakdown of her marriage.
This was swiftly followed by almost being tempted back to drugs which directly led to Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) going out to confront her dealer with a knife in his hand and being stabbed.
Throwing herself into work, Leyla is excited in upcoming episodes when one of Take A Vow’s clients offers her a job with his London team. She doesn’t want to take the job without talking to Jacob first, but when she does so he pretends that he doesn’t care what she does and shuts the door in her face.
This is enough to make Leyla think there’s nothing left for her in the Dales and she accepts the job offer, looking forward to a fresh start. So she’s stunned and disappointed to learn that Priya (Fiona Wade) has been offered the same job and intends to take it – and Leyla’s job offer has been withdrawn.
That’s not the only shock that’s in store for Leyla, though.
When she learns that David (Matthew Wolfenden) has vanished with his and Priya’s daughter, Amba (Ava Jayasinghe) – so Priya can’t take Amba away from the village – she decides to help. She tracks David down to a cottage and tries to convince him that he needs to face his problems rather than run away from them.
A desperate David is beyond all reason and he responds by locking Leyla in the bathroom of the cottage before she can call the police.
Is she in danger?
