Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) was last seen in Emmerdale back in 2019 after being charged with grooming and sexually abusing teenage student Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant).
Being away from the Dales means there’s a high chance Maya could return in the future, which would cause a huge problem for David (Matthew Wolfenden), Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) and Liam (Jonny McPherson).
Leyla and Liam are set to get engaged soon, meaning Maya’s return could be the thing that jeopardises a happy marriage for this couple, and Roxy Shahidi has said that her character would do absolutely anything to get Maya out of her life if she did make a sudden return:
‘I think it would make Leyla’s blood run cold and I think she’d do absolutely everything in her power to get rid of her as quickly as possible, I don’t think she’d necessarily try and kill her again, but I think she’d stop at nothing to get rid of her to be quite honest.’
‘I think for Liam, he obviously unwittingly married a paedophile, which is another mark of how blind he’s been to throwing himself into love’ Jonny added.
He continued, explaining that Liam would feel huge guilt if Maya rocked up in the village:
‘Also it ended up inflicting that woman on the village and wreaking havoc in so many people’s lives, Jacob and Leyla included, which went some way to explaining why Leyla suspected him of grooming Gabby last year, so I think he’d feel horrendous guilt if Maya returned.’
