Emmerdale: Shocking truth about Leanna's mother revealed

They revealed the tragic secret last night

In last night's episode, viewers saw poor Bernice suffer an allergic reaction from a Botox set she bought online.

The hairdresser became jealous after seeing Priya flirt with her boyfriend Liam Cavanagh and has been worrying about her age, with her 50th birthday.

When her Botox kit arrived in the mail, her friend Kerry snooped through her package and discovered what she had ordered.

As the pair chased each other round the salon, the kit slid across the floor to Liam's daughter's feet.

However, after a couple of injections Leanna pointed out Bernice's face was going red.

As Bernice collapsed to the floor complaining her heart was beating fast and she was struggling to breath, Kerry yelled at her to call an ambulance.

When they got the hospital it was clear Leanna was very distressed and we later found out why.
