Emmerdale's Leyla Harding makes a dangerous decision in Thursday's episode (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

A big night out in Hotten sees a bunch of villagers go out to a club.

Among them is Leyla, who's on edge as she's struggling with her sobriety and is scared she's going to succumb to drugs. Suzy's thrilled when Leyla decides to give it a go.

But when Leyla spots her dealer, Callum, in the crowd clearly doing business she's triggered.

With the crim having stabbed her son and sent her to hell and back when she was in the grip of her cocaine addiction, she wants nothing more than to see Callum's life ruined.

Taking action, she secretly films him peddling his illegal wares…
