Emmerdale's Laurel Thomas learns she was wrong to blame her ex (Wednesday, ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

At the Hide, Laurel Thomas has got an angry Matty on his hands.

He's ranting and raving about Suzy, Vanessa's ex. But as Laurel tries to calm down her staff member, Matty sends her reeling when he explains why he's got it in for the events planner.

As Laurel takes in the terrible truth, will she apologise for not trusting Jai? Will he forgive her? Might they get back together?

The thing is, the drugs weren't technically Suzy's though, were they? They were Leyla's. And the heat is on her end because David's caught her in the act.
