'Unbelievable fury' unleashed on Maya as she's EXPOSED in Emmerdale tonight

Maya becomes jealous and heads out on a mission to sleep with Jacob in Emmerdale

Emmerdale release a first look at this evening’s Big Night Out episodes…

Emmerdale star Louisa Clein says Maya Stepney will be hit with “unbelievable fury” as she’s finally caught out with Jacob Gallagher tonight.

In a teaser clip from the first of this evening’s Emmerdale episodes, David Metcalfe is seen trying to persuade girlfriend Maya to come out clubbing.

Maya is very reluctant to go out, but she of course does decide to head out as Aaron, Robert, Tracy, Ellis, Billy and Rhona are among those who end up together on the fateful night.


Having worked out that David is going to propose, Maya is squirming all evening.

“She’s unsurprisingly feeling nervous that David could get down on one knee at any minute,” says Louisa.

We know that Maya ends up telling David not to propose. A shattered David then gets drunk and ends up in the arms of his ex, Tracy.

“A row ensues,” explains Louisa. "David skulks off and there’s a slanging match between Tracy and Maya. Leyla and Priya are involved, too, and in the end, having had messages from Jacob saying he’s missing her, Maya heads out of the club.”

And it’s at this point that her downfall finally arrives. As she hooks up again with Jacob, she’s spotted.

“One of the girls catches Maya and Jacob, and she tells the others,” says Louisa. “There’s utter shock, then unbelievable fury. They start piecing the previous months together and suddenly it all fits. They all have their own agenda as to how they would like to deal with Maya.”
