Manpreet began to get closer to finding out Meena’s crimes and after the two got caught up in the Woolpack explosion, Meena had her sister discharged from the hospital and has been holding her captive at Dale View house while Wendy is away.

Meena told Manpreet about the four people she has murdered and how she plans to kill her too.

Meena told Manpreet’s ex-husband Rishi that Manpreet is in Ibiza with her daughter Aiesha, but Rishi became concerned when he found out Manpreet isn’t with Aiesha.

In tonight’s episode (Wednesday, January 5) the police began to investigate Manpreet’s disappearance and Meena told them she had diverted her trip to a spa hotel in Malaga.

In the cafe, Rishi and the police began questioning Meena more.

Meena lied saying she spoke to Manpreet the night before from a pre-paid phone. When they asked her to call Manpreet, Meena rang a number but said she wasn’t picking up.

Rishi suggest they check the house and Meena refused without Wendy’s permission. But when Harriet revealed Wendy will be back tomorrow, Meena panicked.
