Leyla decides to tell Vanessa how Suzy once knew Holly as they worked on events together.

Although Leyla doesn't mention the drugs, Vanessa is still unhappy to realise that Suzy has been keeping secrets from her.

Vanessa starts to question how serious her relationship with Suzy really is, if she's prepared to keep secrets like this.

Feeling guilty that she can't be more honest about everything, Suzy decides that Vanessa is better off without her and tries to end their relationship.

Martelle Edinborough, who plays Suzy, recently explained: "Suzy feels that she's going to mess things up and it's all going to come out. At first, she asks Vanessa to keep her secret – as in don't tell anyone that she knew Holly.

"Then she decides that she doesn't want to take Vanessa down any path with her, so she breaks up with Vanessa and tells her that she deserves better, which Vanessa is devastated about, and then persuades her to stick around.

"Suzy agrees, but in the process of that, she decides that she wants to give up drugs and her party lifestyle and live a cleaner life. So, she says to Leyla: 'I'm not doing drugs anymore and I want to make things work with Vanessa, I'm giving it up and you should too'."

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
