Meena Jutla turns her attention on Liam Cavanagh in next week's Emmerdale after murdering his daughter Leanna.

Last week, Meena (Paige Sandhu) shared a heated exchange with Leanna (Mimi Slinger) before she grabbed her by the shirt and brutally hauled her off a bridge to fall to her death.

So far, the "evil" nurse has got away with murder after the police ruled Leanna's death as an "accidental fall" on Monday's episode, which has left soap fans furious.

And Meena will leave viewers even more shocked on next week's episodes as she turns her attentions to grieving Liam (Jonny McPherson) and attempts to manipulate him into destroying his dead daughter Leanna's belongings.

The twist comes after a distraught Liam goes missing and leaves his wife Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) worried, as she turns to Meena's boyfriend David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) for support.

Meena is left furious over this and decides to track down Liam herself where she finds the devastated doctor on a bench at the crematorium.


The evil nurse apologies to Liam for his loss, with the doctor unaware she is responsible for his daughter's death, and suggests that he gets rid of Leanna's belongings in a bid to overcome his grief.

Later on, Leyla is left furious as she sees Liam getting rid of Leanna's belongings in bin bags and is further angered when she discovers it was Meena's idea.

The decision also leaves Leanna’s on-off boyfriend Jacob Gallagher annoyed and he accuses Liam of getting rid of his daughter like rubbish, which sparks an argument between the two characters.

Leyla offers to give Liam some space but he asks her to stay and help him with Leanna’s funeral arrangements.

Jacob asks Leyla if he can also get involved with the planning and she agrees as long as they don't tell Liam.

Will Liam find out and who will Meena manipulate next in the village?

The scenes come after Liam star Jonny McPherson revealed that he used past personal grief to film emotional scenes for the ITV soap.

In other upcoming scenes, soap watchers will see Liam distraught after losing his daughter and in new spoiler photos, he can be seen destroying a memorial with flowers left at the scene of her death.

Talking about the heartbreaking storyline, Jonny revealed on Monday's Loose Women that he wanted to do the emotional scenes "justice" and while he could not relate to losing a child, he drew on the "emotional turmoil" of his father's sudden death 12 years ago.
