Meena Jutla will stop at nothing to get Jacob Gallagher well out of the way of her and David Metcalfe's blossoming relationship.

But while Jacob enjoys bursting her bubble this week, Meena quickly turns her attentions to Jacob's friend Leanna Cavanagh and when she shows up at her house, it's clear Leanna is creeped out.

But Meena's scheming may be getting directed at the wrong person because despite trying their hardest to fight it, it's clear there's chemistry fizzing between David and Victoria Sugden as they bond over their babies.

Faith Dingle is preparing to leave the village once again but soon she's stopped by none other than Brenda Walker who has an unlikely proposition for her.

Matty Barton sticks his foot in it with Billy Fletcher, Aaron Dingle isn't sure he can trust Ben Tucker and Ryan Stocks has a word of warning for Mack Boyd.
