Emmerdale fans furious with David as he misses clue of Maya's grooming

They've called him "thick" and "stupid"

Emmerdale fans are furious with David Metcalfe and branded him "thick" after missing clues to Maya's grooming.

Viewers know schoolteacher Maya has been grooming David's adopted son Jacob for months.

Last week, 'the couple' attempted to have sex in the village hall, but their plan was rumbled after David figured out his son planned to ruin his date with Maya and followed them. When David questioned the teenager, he came up with the excuse that his dad didn't make time for him and Amba.

After Jacob left, David discovered Maya's earring on the floor but still didn't put two and two together.
