Emmerdale murder confession shocks fans as Leyla confirms Maya’s fate

Emmerdale fans were left stunned tonight as Leyla Harding told son Jacob Gallagher that Maya Stepney was dead.

The sinister teacher, played by Louisa Clein, has been grooming student Jacob over the last six months.

However the pair were eventually caught out by Jacob's girlfriend Liv, who went on to blackmail them both so that she could get the surrogacy money for her brother and Robert.

As Maya continued to manipulate Liv and those around her, she ended up slipping up during the infamous Big Night Out.

After spotting David kissing Tracy, she met up with Jacob outside the club and were seen making out by Priya.

Priya told Tracy and Leyla, who were horrified by what they had heard.

The trio bundled Maya into their car and drove off into the woods. She has since disappeared and viewers had no idea what happened to her… until tonight.

Discovering that Jacob had been hiding upstairs, she sat him down and tried to convince him that he had been groomed.

"I'm just trying to get you to understand what she's done," Leyla told him shakily as Priya and Tracy watched on.

"She's done nothing wrong, unlike you," Jacob spat back.

"Jacob, she's tried to make you think that she's done nothing wrong," Leyla tried to insist.

Jacob snapped that Leyla couldn't make him stop trying to see her, but Jacob was stopped in his tracks after her next disturbing remark.

"I can and I already have," Leyla said. "She's dead. I killed her."
