Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Leyla Harding has had her drugs secret finally exposed in Emmerdale.
The net has been closing on Leyla after her mate Suzy's drug addiction and connection to Holly Barton's overdose was revealed to the village last week.
In Tuesday's (July 19) episode, Leyla was stressed about clashing with David over paying for Jacob's way at university so he could focus on his studies.
Over at Take a Vow, Leyla was facing pressure for messing up Kim Tate's wedding plans, especially after Vanessa inadvertently dropped her in it by suggesting Kim and Rhona's mood boards may have been mixed up.
"I want my deposit back by this afternoon, you're off the job," Kim demanded.
After Kim stormed out, Leyla angrily pulled out a packet of cocaine and poured it out on the table, as she bemoaned the "absolute cow" for sacking her.
Leyla was horrified when David entered the shop as she was chopping up the coke with her credit card. At first, Leyla blamed Kim for pushing the drugs on her.
"Oh come on, Leyla. This is me you're lying to. So, let's start again with the truth," David demanded.
Leyla blamed the drug use on all of the stress of the last year — Leanna's death, Liam's grief, Meena's reign of terror, and her own shooting.
She then revealed Suzy's secret drugs connection to Holly, and blamed Suzy for getting her hooked on cocaine.
"We're going to go see Liam, get you the help you need," David demanded.
Leyla chased after David to stop him from telling Liam, then panicked as he threatened to pour the cocaine packet into the bin.
She finally agreed to give up the drugs if David promised he wouldn't tell Liam what she'd done.
"He hates drugs and he'll hate me if he finds out I've been taking them," Leyla insisted,
What will David decide?
