For a moment in tonight’s visit to Emmerdale it appeared that Maya might be about to confess to her sordid relationship with Jacob.
The pair looked backed into a corner after Jacob was caught red-handed with Val’s ring, which he had stolen to cover, in part, Liv’s bribe.
Unfortunately for him, on two counts, he learned in this episode that David was going to propose to Maya… and he wanted to use Val’s ring.
As he went to retrieve it, he was intercepted by granddad Eric. When Jacob refused to explain why he’d taken it, Eric dragged him to see dad David, threatening the police.
As Jacob was facing the Spanish inquisition, Maya walked in and said she could explain what was going on.
Fans’ breaths were held as we prepared for her to drop the bombshell she had been bedding the teenager.
But then… well, THEN… she span some yarn about Jacob having got caught up with the wrong gang, and he keeps spending money to impress them…
David was furious she had kept this (lie) from him, but Pollard agreed to keep the police out of it.
Viewers were disgusted by the schoolteacher’s latest behaviour, more so when she then threatened to destroy Liv’s life…
