Emmerdale fans saw a dramatic week unfold on the ITV soap, with Meena Jutla (Paige Sandu) getting caught holding her sister Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) and Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson) captive in a barn. Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) discovered the pair in a terrible state before Manpreet explained his daughter Leanna (Mimi Slinger) was murdered by Meena. Liam, who thought her death was a tragic accident, went after Meena in a rage but she managed to escape by getting into a lorry. Leanna’s ex-boyfriend Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) was left furious after learning the truth about Leanna’s death, and his former step-dad David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) may return to offer him some support.
On Friday’s instalment of the ITV soap, Liam and his wife Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) headed back to Emmerdale after Meena vanished from the woods near the barn she’d been holding Manpreet and Vinny hostage in for days.
The couple ran into Leanna’s former boyfriend Jacob who was confused as to why there were police cars all around the village.
Leyla explained: “There’s something that you need to know. Leanna’s death wasn’t an accident.”
An alarmed Jacob replied: “What are you talking about?”

However, Meena kept the ring as a memento before Noah Dingle (Jack Downham) found it without realising who it belonged to and gave it to Chloe as a gift.
Jacob was left reeling when he realised Noah gave Chloe the ring and insisted Noah return it to him, but Meena had already taken it back.
It looks as though Jacob could start spiralling out of control in upcoming episodes as he tries to come to terms with Leanna’s death.
With Meena nowhere to be found, he may turn his anger towards another villager.
