Emmerdale's Leyla to manipulate Jai as drugs story continues

·2 min read

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Leyla's reliance on cocaine to help her through her problems sees her manipulate Jai on Emmerdale next week, when the two share a heart-to-heart over his past drug use.

Drama unfolds when Jai learns that Leyla has been short-tempered with Priya during work at Take A Vow – and, not wanting Leyla's behaviour to continue, he feels compelled to say something to her.

Leyla is quick to accept what Jai says and even apologises, which leads to the two having a more reasonable conversation.

Jai then tells Leyla all about his own history of drug use, not knowing that his words are more timely than he realises.

Unaware that Leyla is going through exactly what he's talking about, Jai shares a lot with her – including the fact that he has never been able to bring himself to throw away his old dealer's phone number.

Leyla encourages him to do what he should have done a long time ago, and destroy the piece of paper with the number on it.

But Jai doesn't realise that Leyla may have an ulterior motive. Is this part of a bigger plan, or is she really just trying to help Jai move on?

And this isn't the only drama to come for Leyla next week, as she looks to Suzy – who has made a decision to get clean – for help to restock her depleted drug supply.

Knowing about Suzy's history of substance abuse, Leyla thinks that she might be able to steal some drugs from her and proceeds to go through her bag in a desperate search.

But Suzy catches Leyla doing this, and presses her to explain what she was doing. How will Leyla get herself out of this one?
