Leyla is still shaken after her encounter with a mystery intruder at the office on Emmerdale. But she's in for another shock when she discovers WHO it was!

Someone has been menacing and making Leyla Harding's (Roxy Shahidi) life a misery for weeks now on Emmerdale (7:00pm on ITV, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).

At first, Leyla suspected the culprit was Leanna Cavanagh (Mimi Slinger), who did not approve of Leyla's relationship with Leanna's dad, Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson).

But after calling the police following her confrontation with an intruder at the Take A Vow office, the penny FINALLY drops for Leyla in today's episode of Emmerdale when she realises WHO her tormenter is...

But WHO is behind the campaign of hate? And WHY have they got it in for Leyla?

Emmerdale, Belle Dingle, Lydia Dingle

Belle is defensive when Lydia suspects she has started seeing married man Jamie again on Emmerdale

Elsewhere, Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick) is curious about Belle's (Eden Taylor-Draper) strange behaviour and starts to wonder if Belle is secretly seeing married man, Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) again.

If only Lydia knew what's REALLY on Belle's mind!

Still in a dilemma over what to do about Jamie's SHOCK confession, will Belle decide it's time to report Jamie to the police over the hit-and-run horror that has landed Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) in hospital?

Emmerdale, Harriet Finch, Dawn Taylor

Dawn is disgusted to discover Harriet has cheated on her dad Will with nasty copper Malone on Emmerdale...

Meanwhile, there's BIG trouble on the homefront for village vicar, Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow-Blyton), when Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) finds out Harriet has cheated on her dad, Will (Dean Andrews) with dodgy DI Mark Malone (Mark Womack)...

Last month, tensions between Will and his former boss took a violent turn when Will attacked Malone with a wrench.

Reeling from Harriet's betrayal with her dad's sworn enemy, Dawn warns Harriet to come clean about the affair. Or she will!

Emmerdale continues every Monday, Wednesday and Friday 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.
