Emmerdale’s Leyla gets scary warning over drugs as Hollyoaks star debuts

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale’s Leyla Harding has received a frightening warning from a drug dealer.

Last night, Leyla had a conversation with Jai which led him to reveal he still had his old dealer’s number. She then suggested that Jai burn the paper but switched it out so she could keep the number and use it herself.

Tonight’s episode (June 3) opened with Leyla meeting new dealer Jason Denshaw (played by former Hollyoaks star Parry Glasspool) and arranging to buy cocaine from him.

Jason was immediately suspicious of Leyla, questioning where she had obtained his number.

Back at her house, Leyla frantically tried to hide the evidence in her car but was caught short as Liam asked her to drive him to a patient as he couldn’t find his keys. Leyla struggled as she tried to concentrate on driving, leading Liam to question why she was driving so slowly.

Leyla then misunderstood Liam’s directions at the traffic light, heading into the back of an off-duty police officer. The officer was curious why Leyla was driving so erratically.

Worried she was about to be searched, Leyla put the drugs down the grid to get rid of any evidence and the officer reluctantly let the pair go.

Later, Leyla rested up claiming that a headache was the cause of her earlier behaviour. Liam apologised to her, believing the near collision was sparked by him being a distraction. Leyla then offered to head out and get the couple some wine and a takeout.

However, she had instead arranged to meet Jason again to buy the drugs she had to get rid of.

Jason wasn’t impressed about seeing Leyla again, accusing her of reselling and warned her that if she was, she’d be in serious trouble.

Are things going to get worse for Leyla?

Emmerdale airs at the earlier time of 7pm this week on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
