David Metcalfe (played by Matthew Wolfenden) believes his young son Theo is safe in the hands of villager Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) on Emmerdale (ITV, 8.00pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

But as was seen in the first episode of tonight's DOUBLE-BILL of the ITV soap, David's jealous and possessive girlfriend Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) is out to sabotage her boyfriend's friendship with single mum Victoria.

So in plot to frame and discredit innocent Victoria, scheming Meena appears to have disappeared with Theo!

Victoria is horrified when there is no sign of Theo, who vanished while she was looking after him and her own son Harry.

Victoria quickly alerts David, who is horrified at the thought of something TERRIBLE happening to his beloved son.

How could this happen?

WHY wasn't Victoria keeping a closer eye on both boys?

Unaware of Meena's meddling, David and Victoria begin a frantic search of the village for missing Theo.

Has Meena taken the little boy somewhere?

And if so, is he really safe in her hands given her disturbed past and recent MURDEROUS behaviour?

Will David and Victoria find Theo before something TERRIBLE happens?
