Seven days to die!

It’s the first Monday of the New Year and the soaps are back to normal – so here are your Emmerdale spoilers for tonight!

Manpreet on a countdown to death

For a moment on New Year’s Eve, it looked as though Manpreet might escape her mad sister’s clutches after breaking free from her shackles.

And then Meena came home early – and drugged her.

Manpreet comes round in tonight’s episode, now properly fearing for her life, and desperately tries to win round her psycho sibling.

But Meena just laughs in her face.

Liam rumbles Meena

Later, Liam catches Meena as she is forging a prescription for sleeping pills at the surgery.

But she manages to convince him she needs the medication to help her deal with the (entirely fictional) loss of her (entirely fictional…) baby.

And he willingly writes out a prescription for her – which she will use in her evil plot to end her sister.

As Meena administers the pills to Manpreet, she maniacally declares there are just seven days left for her to live – and marks the first one off on the calendar!
