Emmerdale fans convinced paedo Maya will return as Leyla’s stalker

Is she back to cause more carnage?

Emmerdale fans think they have worked out who Leyla Harding’s stalker is – paedophile Maya Stepney.

The teacher was run out of the village last year after abusing her stepson Jacob Gallagher.

But fans think she is behind the destruction of rival Leyla Harding’s business and her stalking torment.

One said: “Definitely Maya!!”

Another added: “It’s got to be Maya.”

Why did Maya leave Emmerdale?

Maya was sent to prison for her inappropriate behaviour with Jacob Gallagher.

However, she escaped justice for abusing him and having sex with him. But she was driven out of the village by the horrified locals as a result.

However, when she was released from prison, fans were shocked to see that she was pregnant.

And they were yet more shocked when she abandoned the baby boy on David and Jacob’s doorstep for them to raise.

A DNA test showed David to be the father – but fans have questioned whether he is lying to protect his son Jacob.

But with her baby happily growing up without her, could Maya have decided to return to reclaim him?

And will she want to destroy Leyla in the process?
