TONIGHT’s Emmerdale: Pete cheats on Leyla with another villager!

And we thought he was the good Barton boy

Oh, Pete. We thought you would the good Barton boy. But you’ve let us down.

It seems all it takes is a pretty villager – Priya! – to bat her eyelids and you can betray Leyla without a bye or leave.

Now, to set the scene…

After Rakesh’s role in the fire at The Mill is revealed to the entire village, she is looking for some comfort.

And, boy, does she find it in the very manly arms of Pete.

What’s that we hear you cry? But she’s married! And he’s shacked up with her best mate Leyla!

Awkward, indeed!

We can kind of understand how Priya ends up in this situation – she’s more than a bit fed up of always having to find forgiveness in her heart and support a man who’s done nothing but the wrong thing.

But as she and Pete find themselves sharing a passionate kiss, why does HE not stop himself hopping into bed with her?

And that’s not all…

It gets really awkward next week when Jai throws Priya and Rakesh out of his house and the pair end up moving in with Pete and Leyla.

But surely being under the same roof will put a stop to their shenanigans? Nope!

Fiona Wade, who plays cheating Priya, explained to Inside Soap: “It’s going to get complicated!

“In the heat of the moment it was all about her and Pete, and Priya wasn’t thinking of Leyla.

“Now she feels guilty – but it doesn’t stop at just one night.”

But what’s prompted this change of character for Priya? Fiona revealed to Metro.co.uk: “She’s fed up of being nice!

“She used to be a little minx with guys. But she had Amba, got married and it’s just been one stress after another with Rakesh.”

And it soon becomes clear she can’t stand being with Rakesh any more. She ends up confessing that she slept with someone else and Rakesh is left reeling.

She stops short of telling him who though, but he soon jumps to his own conclusions – and assumes it was David.

Will Priya confess who it really was? And how will it affect her relationship with Leyla if she does?
