Emmerdale airs drug overdose story for Leyla

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale has aired a drug overdose for Leyla Cavanagh.

Thursday's (August 4) double bill saw things go from bad to worse for Leyla when Callum showed up to collect the drugs she was supposed to be hiding for him.

The bag was nowhere to be found, so he warned his new "employee" to find the cash and the gear or "bad things" would happen to her. Meanwhile, Matty had planted the drugs in Suzy's car as a means of revenge.

In the end, Leyla managed to get the drugs back to Callum, but now felt trapped because he made it clear she'd have to continue as his go-between since she'd taken his money.

Callum left Leyla with a packet of drugs. Later, Liam returned home to find Leyla collapsed on the ground beside the packet.

As Leyla was rushed to the hospital, word filtered through the village about the collapse. Liam assumed it had been a one-time thing for Leyla taking drugs, yet Manpreet felt otherwise.

Liam admitted he had no idea Leyla was using drugs, as he was still struggling following the death of his daughter Leanna last year.

"You found her home, alone. That doesn't suggest someone dipping their toe in the water," Manpreet pointed out.

Liam turned angry, insisting there is "no excuse" for Leyla choosing to use drugs. The doctor admitted he wouldn't stand by if Leyla wanted to keeping using.

"Life is precious. Leanna had hers snatched away from her, she had no choice," Liam declared. "If Leyla throws hers away over some cheap thrill, that's up to her. She'll do it without me."
