Emmerdale’s Manpreet Sharma left shocked by Meena Jutla’s new plan

There’s a tense visit at the prison.

Emmerdale’s Manpreet Sharma comes face-to-face with her evil sister Meena Jutla again tonight (March 7) – and tensions run high.

Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker) was left horrified last week when Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) revealed that Meena had demanded to see her at the prison.

Meena (Paige Sandhu) is continuing to enjoy having leverage over the villagers, toying with them as she continues to play games over her upcoming plea hearing.

Everyone hopes that Meena will provide closure by pleading guilty to her full list of crimes when she faces court. However, Meena has now demanded to see Manpreet as part of her supposed attempts to repent.

In Monday’s episode, Manpreet reluctantly goes ahead and faces Meena at the jail.

Manpreet encourages Meena to face the music at her plea hearing, but she’s wrong-footed when her own guilty secrets are mentioned by Meena.

Meena points out that Manpreet lied to the police to protect Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) when he pushed her from the bridge a few weeks ago.

The scheming killer hints that if she’s going to tell the truth, she wants Manpreet to do the same by setting the record straight about Liam deliberately pushing her.

As tensions between the siblings continue to run high, Manpreet loses it by slapping Meena across the face.

Meena reacts surprisingly well to the outburst, hinting that she’s ready to confess to her crimes.

Sadly, when Meena does face the police later on, it seems that she has found a cunning new way to turn the tables on Manpreet.

The latest Meena drama comes as Emmerdale makes a major change in the schedules, moving to a new permanent 7.30pm timeslot.

The soap is shifting to make way for a new extended ITV News show. It will now face a clash with EastEnders four nights a week, as the Walford soap is making its own move to a permanent 7.30pm slot.
