Emmerdale: Love cheats David Metcalfe and Maya Cavanagh kiss!

Emmerdale David Metcalfe and Maya Cavanagh

Despite both being married, David and Maya can't fight their feelings for each other and find themselves kissing again. But will they get caught?

With both their marriages on the rocks, David Metcalfe and Maya Cavanagh have found comfort with each other, even though their other halves, Tracy and Liam strongly disapprove.

Tracy originally held out hope of saving her marriage. But it looks like all hope is lost when David and Maya meet-up again and are soon kissing passionately!

Elsewhere, Kerry is struggling with life at home in the aftermath of Amelia's kidnapping. But village vicar Harriet reminds Kerry that Amelia has been through a difficult time and things may not return to the way they were for a while.

And Aaron does his best to comfort mum Chas who is still trying to process the heartbreaking news her and Paddy's unborn baby daughter hasn't developed properly in the womb and may not survive.

Emmerdale continues weeknights at 7:00pm on ITV

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!


Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.


Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)


And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
