Emmerdale fans predict shock relapse for character after brutal start to New Year | The Sun

IT looks like 2023 might not get off to the best start for one Emmerdale character as fans have predicted a shocking relapse.

Leyla Harding, played by Roxy Shahidi, has had a difficult year on the soap following her cocaine habit which resulted in huge financial issues, a rehab stint and ultimately led to the breakdown of her short marriage to embattled doctor Liam Cavangah.

Following their decision to leave the marriage behind them a few weeks ago, both of them have attempted to move forward but have found themselves rather lost amidst the uncertainty over their futures.

However things have not gotten any better for Leyla who questioned the pair's decision to seek a divorce during the New Year's Eve special.

But it appeared that Liam was not in the same headspace as Leyla as he sought to move on.

With Leyla showing up extremely late to The Woolpack's midnight celebration, Liam admitted he was unsure of she would turn up but Leyla had something she wanted to get off her chest.

Another commented: "#Emmerdale I think Leyla could be heading for another fall."

A third said: "Oh Leyla don’t walk off. #Emmerdale."
