Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Leyla Harding has been given a scary drugs warning from friend Suzy Merton in Emmerdale.

Suzy has faced the consequences of her own past drug use this week, as girlfriend Vanessa Woodfield discovered she'd given Holly Barton money to buy drugs the night she died.

A dark cloud hung over the village in Wednesday's (July 13) episode, following Moira finding out about Suzy's connection to her daughter's death.

Suzy was also dealing with the aftermath of her drugs connection with Holly being outed to others in the village, as well as the fact that she'd "lost everything".

"I wanted to tell Moira the truth the minute I realised who she was, and you talked me out of it," Suzy reminded Leyla.

Suzy then hit out at her friend: "You have no idea what you've done to me."

As Liam gathered with Leyla and Vanessa to discuss the news, Leyla joined in by insulting Suzy rather than admitting her own part in the lies.

"After what she's done, I don't want anything to do with her. I'm disgusted," Leyla told Liam.

Suzy overheard her friend's nasty comment, but only faced more unkind words from Vanessa and Jai when trying to confront Leyla.

Even after Leyla's harsh words, Suzy took the rap for the stray packet of cocaine in Take A Vow that was blamed on Jai. In reality, Leyla was the one responsible.

Later on, a scorned Suzy warned Leyla that she was playing a very dangerous game by hiding her drug secrets from her loved ones.

"I tried to help you, be a good friend, the type of friend you haven't been to me," Suzy reminded her. "I was wasting my time."

When Suzy referred to Leyla as "an addict", her former mate angrily denied she was hooked on cocaine. Suzy pointed out it was "obvious" how much the drugs had changed Leyla.

"You used to be fun and kind and genuine," Suzy reminded her. "Now, you're just self-absorbed and all you can think about is coke."

Will Suzy's words finally get through to Leyla?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
