Emmerdale viewers disgusted with 'new grooming plot' for Jacob

They've accused his dad David of stalking him

With Jacob still refusing to have anything to do with David since the whole Maya fall-out, the sad dad has taken drastic measures to communicate with him.

He’s anonymously befriended his son on an online gaming site, and has been able to chat to him – even though Jacob thinks he’s talking to another lad.

While this development is making David – and Leyla, who’s also joining in –  feel happier, it’s outraged some Emmerdale viewers, who have called what they are doing "grooming".

They are shocked that Jacob’s parents would do such a deceitful thing after the teenager was groomed by his schoolteacher Maya.

In any case, it looks like David and Leyla's game has already been rumbled. Jacob has just landed a job at the cafe and, although he mentioned his new employment to his 'new gaming friend', he didn't mention where it was.

When Jacob received a message asking when he would begin his job at the cafe, Jacob realised his new friend had to be someone local to know that detail.
