Soap fans know Louisa played paedophile school teacher Maya in Emmerdale from 2018 until 2019.

She arrived in the village and was originally married to Dr Liam Cavanagh but soon began an affair with David Metcalfe and ended her relationship with Liam.

Shortly after Maya began grooming his 15-year-old son Jacob Gallagher, who was also her pupil, and started sleeping with him days after his 16th birthday.

Eventually Maya was caught out and sent to prison on a 12 month sentence, but she was released after five months.

Viewers were stunned when she was seen leaving the prison pregnant.

On Christmas Day 2019, Maya left her baby boy on Jacob and David’s doorstep.

David enlisted the help of Liam to get a DNA test done, however he asked that whatever the results said, Liam made sure they showed David was the father, not Jacob, to save ruining Jacob’s life even further.

Liam refused, but when the DNA test came back and proved David is the father, viewers were left questioning if Liam did in fact change the results.

Do you think David really is Theo’s father?

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