Emmerdale: Leyla’s addiction

Months ago it was revealed that Leyla had been doing cocaine with Suzy Merton.

Suzy, who was an events planner, began working with Leyla at Take A Vow. Suzy also began a relationship with Vanessa Woodfield, who works as a vet in the village.

However when Suzy discovered Moira is the mother of Holly Barton, she revealed to Leyla she knew Holly, as she employed her to take photos at the weddings she organised.

Eventually Suzy realised that the day Holly died was the same day she gave Holly money to buy cocaine.

Holly used Suzy’s money to buy heroin and when Suzy found out she was furious.

Later Holly died of an overdose.

Leyla kept Suzy’s secret and Suzy vowed to stop using drugs. However Leyla struggled to stop.

When Vanessa found out about Suzy’s connection to Holly she told Moira.

Vanessa broke up with Suzy and all of Moira’s friends were disgusted with her.
