Emmerdale fans fear David and Meena are heading for a coercive control storyline.

Earlier this week, Meena began growing increasingly jealous of David and his friendship with his ex-girlfriend, Leyla.

However what Meena didn’t realise is David was spending time with Leyla to help her boyfriend Liam plan a proposal.

As Liam prepared to pop the question, Meena ruined their lunch by accusing Leyla of trying to steal David from her.

But when David and Liam revealed why David had been spending so much time with Leyla, Meena felt guilty.

Later, David went to see Meena and she told him she never knew where she stood with him.

She told him she was scared of getting hurt again and accused him of not being in love with her.
