PAEDOPHILE teacher Maya Stepney can’t keep away from her teenage grooming victim and returns to Emmerdale next week, determined to speak to schoolboy Jacob Gallagher.
Maya – who was charged with sexual communication with a minor last week – will be seen secretly spying on Jacob from a shadowy spot, waiting for her chance to pounce and speak to him.
But she’s left rattled when she’s spotted by Jacob’s granddad, Eric Pollard. Eric – played by Dales legend Chris Chittell – quickly hatches a plan and pretends he hasn’t seen Maya, before he heads back to the B&B grimly determined to do something about twisted Maya.
He picks up the phone to call the police but is shocked when a menacing Maya arrives and terminates his call.
But Maya’s soon thrown when Pollard reveals he’s one step ahead of her. He gives her a chilling ultimatum – either she tells Jacob she doesn’t love him anymore and it’s over, or he’ll call the police.
Backed into a corner, what will Maya do to save her own skin?
An insider said: “Louisa’s had fans glued to their seats with her brilliant performance.
They’ve been wondering what the future might hold for Maya and savouring the potential for her to continue to feature.
But it seems they’ll be disappointed. Her arrest for grooming Jacob spelled the end of a chapter on the soap — for Louisa and Maya.”
Millions watched last week as Maya was finally arrested after a dramatic showdown with Jacob’s dad, David Metcalfe – actor Matthew Wolfenden.
David cornered her as she waited to meet his son and accused Maya of being a paedophile, though she claimed her and Jacob were in love. Maya warned David that she would be reunited with Jacob once she came out of prison — and would take him away from his father forever.
David stood his ground and watched police slap the cuffs on her just as Jacob – Joe-Warren Plant – made an appearance.
But with Jacob taking Maya’s side, will justice be done?
