Leyla Cavanagh's issue with Suzy becomes clear in Thursday's hour-long episode of Emmerdale (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

Leyla's been really anti Vanessa's new squeeze Suzy and we're about to find out why.

It turns out that Leyla's been leading a secret life and has been getting high with Suzy, who she knows through work.  

The drugs which were found in Take A Vow and were blamed on Jai were actually Leyla's!

Leyla's terrified that her secret life – getting high to escape the stress she's been under at home with her GP husband Liam – is going to get exposed.

And it looks like it might…

Leyla panics when she spots Suzy with their dealer Callum. It's way too close to home for the wedding planner.

Leyla's on edge as she and Priya collaborate with Suzy on a pitch to a rich client, Eddie.

The women nail it and are thrilled to bag Eddie's business.

As they celebrate, Leyla sneaks outside with Suzy who gives her some cocaine.

In party mode, the women head back to Take A Vow where they let loose and take more drugs.

But panic descends when Vanessa turns up, looking for Suzy! Will she spot the drugs?

Is Leyla's dodgy secret about to get exposed?
