Emmerdale: Is Meena really pregnant?

It has been revealed that Meena is not actually pregnant.

Speaking about the pregnancy to Entertainment Daily and other media in a recent interview, actress Paige Sandhu said: “She freaks out as she would. To her, she still believes that they’re still meant to be together and they’re soulmates.

“So what she does is she pretends to be pregnant. In her eyes that means that she still has a way of taking ownership of him and making sure that he can’t cut her out of his life, and there’s still a way for her to weasel her way back in.”

What’s next for Meena?

This week, Billy tells Dawn that Meena is pregnant and she reassures him that it won’t affect their relationship.

However when Manpreet finds out, she’s suspicious of her sister’s pregnancy.
