Emmerdale hints Maya Stepney may be dead after showdown with Leyla Harding

Was last night the beginning of the end for Maya?

For months, Emmerdale viewers have watched schoolteacher Maya Stepney groom teenager Jacob Gallagher and convince him that he's actually in love with her and that they'll be together.

And then a few weeks ago, fans thought the storyline would come to an end after Liv Flaherty found Maya in Jacob's bed.

But instead, she blackmailed the teacher for her silence; intending to use the funds to help Robert and Aaron's surrogacy plan.

Instead, it was Priya Sharma who found out the truth after she spotted Maya and Jacob kissing outside of a nightclub in Hotten.

She, naturally, tells the rest of the gals what she saw, saying:

"He was here. He was kissing Maya. I said he was kissing her. He got out of the cab, she was there, they were obviously pleased to see each other and they kissed.

"Like two people who can't get enough of each other."

Leyla managed to lure Maya back to them with the promise of a lift home. But when Priya pulled up with Tracy (who kissed David earlier this evening), Maya started to have a go at her.

She snapped:

"Wow. Well, aren't you brazen. This is going to be a fun journey home."

But Leyla soon made it clear that Maya was the one who was actually in some serious danger.

"She's the least of your worries, darling," she coldly told her.

Now, the newest Emmerdale trailer has hinted that Maya Stepney may be dead after a showdown with Leyla, Priya and Tracy.

"You are going to regret every single thing you have done to Jacob," Leyla yells as she attacks Maya, who screams for help.

The footage also shows Leyla, Priya and Tracy burning someone's clothes - and Leyla telling them, "We have to stick to the same story."

Emmerdale's Big Night Out storyline will continue the week beginning May 6.
