Emmerdale fans work out blackmail twist as David discovers Leylas drug battle

Emmerdale was full of drama on Tuesday night as Leyla Harding's drug secret was finally exposed on the ITV soap.

Viewers will recall that Leyla has been using cocaine for the past few weeks after getting close to newcomer Suzy Merton, who has since distanced herself from Leyla and left the village.

During Tuesday's episode, Leyla, who has been acting out of character, lost Kim Tate as a client at her wedding planner business Take A Vow.

Furious about losing Kim, especially as she now has to pay back the deposit, Leyla decided to use cocaine but she was caught red handed by ex David Metcalfe.

David was horrified to learn of her drug use as he confiscated the cocaine, insisting that she needs to tell husband Liam Cavanagh so she can get the help that she needs.

However, Leyla was quick to beg David not to tell Liam, claiming that it would end their marriage and she vowed that she would stop using. The episode ended with David deciding what to do…

Yet some viewers think that there could be a blackmail plot coming up due to David's recent money woes in the village.

At the start of the episode, David was left perplexed about Leyla "splashing the cash" on their son Jacob, admitting it made him feel "less of a dad" to him.

Some soap watchers now think that David will blackmail Leyla for money after learning about her drug use.

Taking to Twitter, one person said: "This could be the perfect blackmail storyline now David’s got some dirt #Emmerdale."

To which a different account put: "#Emmerdale now will David do the right thing & tell Liam or….."

While other viewers were quick to encourage David to tell Liam about Leyla's drug use so she can finally get help.

One person said: "TELL LIAM, DAVID! TELL HIM NOW! #Emmerdale."
