Emmerdale fans watched a dramatic proposal earlier this evening as Dr Liam Cavanagh (played by Jonny McPherson) got down on one knee and popped the question to Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi). Viewers quickly took to social media to discuss the scenes they’d seen on the popular ITV soap and many were convinced the couple would never make it down the aisle as Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) is returning soon.
Liam finally proposed to Leyla in tonight’s episode when he declared his feelings for her: “I love you. You’re my everything you’re my soulmate, the woman I cannot be without.
“Will you do me the honour of becoming my wife? Marry me?”
Leyla nodded trying to contain her excitement and quickly answered: “Yes!”
Viewers quickly took to Twitter to share their reaction to the proposal and many predicted Leyla’s happy ending could be ruined by Bernice.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Oh Leyla, you fool for accepting! It means she and Liam won’t be making it to marriage as Bernice will waltz back into town on the day of the wedding!”
A second frustrated viewer posted: “If bloody Bernice splits Liam and Leyla up I’ll be livid!!! #Emmerdale”
“#Emmerdale when’s Bernice gonna come spoil it?” A third posted.
Some fans even seemed to encourage the breaking off of the engagement, hinting Liam and Leyla aren’t a good match.
Another fan commented: “#Emmerdale come on Bernice you better turn up to this shambles of an engagement”
Someone else agreed: “Please Bernice come back and stop this sham between Liam and Leyla #emmerdale”
“Watch #Bernice rock up & split them up, not that I’m keen on #Liam & #Leyla #Emmerdale” another viewer suggested.
Roxy Shahidi who plays Leyla on the soap recently opened up about her relationship with Liam.
In an interview on This Morning Roxy was asked if the proposal could make things easier for Leyla and Liam.
Roxy replied: “I hope for them that they are going to have this lovely beautiful day. To be fair, especially for Leyla because she’s wanted to get married for a long long time.
“She’s almost got there twice and it’s something that’s really really important to her.
“So, I hope they have this gorgeous day. But, I’m sure there’s going to be lots of drama,” she added.
Was the actress teasing at a Leyla and Liam not getting married?
Samantha, who plays Bernice and who is set to return sometime this summer also spoke about her involvement in the storyline.
She said: “As an actress leaving a role that you love is always a hard decision and I’d been lucky to work so consistently for so long which is rare in our business, so I knew the time had come to be brave and take the leap back in 2019 to pursue my other passion of writing and focus on getting my first book published.
“I’ve now had such a lovely response with Rosemary and The Witches of Pendle Hill and the down time of the pandemic meant I was able to complete my next two books.
“I’m a big believer in fate so when Emmerdale offered me the chance to return as Bernice I took it as a sign that it was meant to be,” she continued.
“I’m delighted to be returning to play out Bernice’s future storylines which I’m sure are going to keep the audience entertained.
“She certainly arrives back with a bang that’s all I’m allowed to say right now and I’m looking forward to releasing my next two books whilst juggling her hectic onscreen life!”
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
