Emmerdale SPOILERS: Jai takes drugs to cope with his stress levels

His workload is getting too much

Jai Sharma is struggling to cope with stress at work in next week's Emmerdale and ends up turning to drugs to cope with the pressure.

Fans of Emmerdale will know that Jai has got a rocky past with drugs and fought hard to get his life back on track after becoming addicted to cocaine in 2015.

Jai soon vents his frustration at Al Chapman and Kim Tate, convinced he is the only one pulling his weight at work.

Under pressure and having to cover for Al all the time, Jai is stressed when he realises the business has lost one of their biggest sponsorship deals.

Al finally gets his brain in gear and heads out to salvage the sponsorship deal, but things only get worse for Jai when he is told an important deadline has been brought forward.

Realising he is going to have to work through the night to get everything done, Jai is struggling to cope, and with Al and Kim nowhere to be seen, it looks like the workload is all on him once again.

But as the pressure gets too much, his thoughts turn to cocaine and soon he is calling for a pizza delivery, but it's not just a margarita that he's ordering.

Graham is baffled by Jai's odd behaviour, but it's only when Graham leaves that his shifty behaviour is explained...

It's not just a stuffed crust in the box, but also a bag of coke.

As Jai stashes the drugs in his desk draw, it seems he is very close to returning to his old ways... but will he give in to temptation?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
