Emmerdale: Leanna and Billy will get together, fans predict – but how old are they?

Leanna is currently dating Jacob Gallagher

Emmerdale fans are predicting there will be romance for Leanna Cavanagh and Billy Fletcher.

In last night’s episodes of the ITV soap (Thursday, May 6) Leanna and Billy crossed paths as Leanna left her boyfriend Jacob a voicemail.

After spotting Billy eating a chocolate bar, Leanna asked if it was a cheat day.

The personal trainer sarcastically asked if she wanted him to sort out a fitness plan and she cheekily responded: “I’m fit enough thanks.”

The two crossed paths again later in the episode as Leanna agreed to take part in a fitness class with her future stepmum Leyla, which was led by Billy.

When Leyla warned Billy not to scare her off with burpees, Leanne responded: “Why would I be scared of him?” with a big grin on her face.

Despite Leanna being in relationship with Leanna’s son Jacob Gallagher, fans are predicting a romance for her a Billy.

However some are questioning how old both of the characters are.
