Viewers are confused about the beef!

Emmerdale revealed that Gabby Thomas is the one who has been tormenting Leyla Harding. But why is she after her?

In last night’s episode (Monday, August 10) Leyla got an unexpected ‘client’ at Take A Vow. However this client believed he was speaking to Leyla on a dating app and that they were going to sleep together.

But she soon realised someone had set her up on the app and her boyfriend Liam was furious.

She later went back into the office and saw it had been trashed, but she was shocked to see the attacker was still there.

As the assailant ran out, Leyla threw a vase at them catching their arm.

It later cut to Gabby returning home wearing all black, much like the person who was in Leyla’s office.

When she went into the kitchen, she pulled up her sleeve revealing a nasty cut.

However as it was revealed she is Leyla’s tormentor, viewers were left confused, wondering why Gabby has it in for her.
