She told The Mirror and other press: “This woman is ravaging the village and destroying people’s lives, Liam has lost her daughter, Manpreet… she hasn’t been through what in 12 years. last month?
“So I think we were very conscious of not just tying it in a very neat bow and saying it’s okay, now that Meena is out of the village and out of the village, let’s move on.
“It’s not what was going to happen or how we made it. There’s a big story on the table for Liam and Leyla, it’s a result of what went down with Leanna and everything, there are things. major ramifications for Charles and Manpreet.”
