Emmerdale fans are suspicious that Jai Sharma's new friend Nell could be impersonating Holly Barton deliberately.
Last night's episodes saw Jai receive a shock when a girl at his NA meeting reminded him of Holly – and not only because of her appearance.
When lookalike Nell opened up over her history of drug use, her story was eerily similar to Holly's and Jai felt compelled to help her – wanting to make up for being unable to save his tragic girlfriend last year.
While we'll have to stay tuned to find out what Nell has in store, some viewers are already wondering whether she could be conning Jai after Holly's tragic story was recently revealed publicly in a newspaper article.
Could Nell have read the piece and now be trying to con Jai for her own gain? Take a look at the best suspicious tweets from fans below:

It's not just Emmerdale fans who are worried about what Jai could be getting himself into. Next week's episodes see Rakesh Kotecha warn him that he should be wary of Nell, but will Jai really be prepared to take advice from his old rival?
Chris Bisson, who plays Jai, recently explained: "I don't think Jai has dealt with his grief over Holly's death. It was a big shock for him. It's not just grief that eats him up, it's guilt too. Although it's clearly not Jai's fault that Holly re-used drugs and passed away, he feels that he could have done more.
"Jai can't get over the fact that if anyone should have known what was going on with Holly, it's him because he'd used drugs himself in the past.
"I'm also really glad that we're playing a story with Jai where we see that addiction problems don't just disappear and every day can be a struggle. I think that's important.
"Sometimes we'll do a story where all of the characters move on afterwards, but this is something that it's not easy to move on from. It certainly will never go away for Jai."
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
