Emmerdale has unveiled a murderous plot which will see one character killed next week.
Families are torn apart and lives are changed forever in the upcoming episodes (5 – 9 July).
ITV tease: “Viewers will be left on the edge of their seats as they witness calculating Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) take her first victim in the village.
“Lacking in empathy, dominated by her own ego, but otherwise normal to those around her, Meena is a manipulative character, hellbent on getting what she wants and woe betide anyone who stands in her way.
“If you dare to cross her, she will do everything in her power to bring you down, all the while playing the innocent friend and victim.
“In recent weeks, viewers have seen her behaviour become increasingly erratic, but what finally pushes her over the edge and who will meet a harrowing end?”
A special promo of the week ahead will air on ITV tonight, Monday 28 June.
Emmerdale Producer, Kate Brooks reveals: “Meena has been a whirlwind since arriving in the village, scheming and manipulating people and situations to get what she wants and causing nothing but drama and unnecessary heartache in the process.
“Her seemingly caring facade belies her true persona; a woman with a murky past and no conscience. Meena’s lack of empathy is often perceived by those around her as little more than spoilt petulance, however, we soon learn the true extent of her narcissistic and amoral character.
“Malevolent Meena will wreak havoc in the village and once she has you in her sights, no one is safe from her devious and dangerous machinations.
“This storyline will see the viewers gripped as they realise that this is a woman who is capable of anything and everything.”
Paige Sandhu shares: “It’s great to play a character that is on a completely different wavelength to everyone else, who always has a hidden agenda and will do anything to get what she wants.
“Her lack of empathy and her playfulness make her a very exciting character. She’s the strangest character I’ve played for sure, but also the most fun.”
Emmerdale airs on ITV and the ITV Hub.
