Emmerdale spoilers! David's on a SECRET MISSION to help Liam propose!

Will David accept Liam's secret mission in Emmerdale

Liam wants to wow Leyla as he pops the question but he needs her ex's help…

Emmerdale favourite David Metcalfe gets sneaky in Monday's episode on ITV from 7pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

Out of all the guys in the village, David Metcalfe is probably the least likely super sleuth. But what he has got, which puts him a cut above all the rest, is a deep connection with his ex Leyla. And that's exactly what Liam Cunningham needs if he's to pull off his proposal plan.

In the shop, doc Liam (Jonny McPherson) details shopkeeper David (Matthew Wolfenden). He's got to sneak in and get Leyla's (Roxy Shahidi) ring while she's in the shower so Liam can then take it to a jeweller and get some serious bling.

But though Leyla and David are so close that him ferreting around in the bathroom while she's in the shower isn't a thing, can David pull it off and help Liam to get his proposal pitch perfect?

Elsewhere, Cain (Jeff Hordley) and Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) are on a secret mission too!
