Emmerdale's Meena Jutla has got her sister Manpreet and Vinny Dingle tied up in a barn in Monday's episode (ITV, 7.00pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

When Emmerdale's secret serial killer Meena Jutla twigged that her sister Manpreet was on to her warped ways, there was only one thing for it: she had to go.

But other people's plans got in the way and when Al blew up the Woolpack, Meena and Manpreet were both collateral damage.

Though both survived the blast, Manpreet knows her life remains on the line as her sister is still out to silence her…

Now, with the villagers and police looking for 'missing' Manpreet, evil nurse Meena has got her sister holed up in a barn and is drugging her with painkillers.

But Meena wasn't expecting to have Vinny Dingle to deal with too.

However, when she rumbled Vinny's investigative attempts to solve Ben Tucker's murder (and get jailed Liv off the hook), and caught Vinny tailing her when she was trying to get rid of her sister, he ended up getting sucked into Meena's killer lair.

Alone in the barn with Manpreet, Vinny's terrified as the doc explains her sister's a killer, listing Meena's victims naming Ben in the grisly roll-call.

Kicking his keys towards Manpreet, Vinny insists they'll survive.

But will they?

Vinny is horrified when their captor returns wheeling in an IV drip.

However, someone back in the village is getting suss about Meena. 

In the surgery, GP Liam looks over Meena's notes and is perplexed to see there's no mention of her recent miscarriage…
