Emmerdale fans think they know who Leyla Harding is secretly talking to on ITV, during a phone call during Friday’s episode.
The character is comforting her husband, Liam Cavanagh ahead of next week’s trial of killer Meena Jutla, where she will be tried for the murder of his daughter Leanna – as well as the murders and crimes other.
But when Leyla contacts Manpreet Sharma, Meena’s older sister, she is forced to leave them and receive a phone call “from work”.
This doesn’t appear to be the case as Leyla is clearly hiding something, before sharing a cryptic chat with her mysterious caller.
She told Liam and Manpreet: “I’m so sorry, I have to do this work again.”
But as she stepped out of earshot, she was heard questioning the person before agreeing to meet them later that day.
She said, “Hi, I think I have to call you? No, I can’t, not now. You know what? I’ll see you later, okay?”
Leyla then ended the conversation and didn’t mention who the person called her to Liam or anyone else.
Viewers who watched the footage believed Leyla was up to something and that she was keeping it a secret from Liam.
They began to speculate who she was on the phone with and why, with one questioning whether she could talk to Ian, Meena’s warden.
But others are starting to question the plot and past characters, which are linked to Leyla, with many suggesting they know who is on the other end of the phone.
Fans question whether Andrea Tate, murdered by Meena in October, might actually be still alive and possibly the one talking to Leyla.
This is highly unlikely as it has been confirmed that Andrea is dead, while a body has not been shown – and her daughter Millie is currently living with Andrea’s mother Hazel.
But this hasn’t stopped fans from speculating Andrea is who Leyla is talking to, and perhaps it has something to do with the trial.
One viewer tweeted: “Andrea is alive, that’s who Leyla is talking to lol!”
Another fan speculated: “Jamie Tate’s ex-wife”, a third wrote: “I wonder… is Leyla getting a phone call from Andrea? We’ve never seen her body. she and Charles even remember she exists today….”
