Manpreet Sharma [REBECCA SARKER] (ITV)

Manpreet is suspicious about Meena’s pregnancy news, and her worries only intensify when she finds a social media page for Carol, the sister of Meena’s past victim Nadine.

After apprehensively sending a message to her, Manpreet is left gobsmacked when a reply comes through from Carol in which she states that Meena is a murderer!

Meena, meanwhile, is surreptitiously meeting up with an mystery driver on Main Street and handing over cash in exchange for a dodgy package. And, later on, the village killer will be seen intercepting a very drunk Liam as a staggers home and bringing him back to her bedroom.

Pretty soon, Liam is out for the count, having been ensnared by Meena. But what exactly does she have planned?
