Emmerdale spoilers: Maya in court! Will the predatory teacher be found guilty?

Maya Stepney goes on trial but will the teacher – who groomed and abused teenager Jacob Gallagher – be found guilty?

Finally it’s time. Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) is going on trial for having groomed and abused Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant), her pupil and the son of her one-time boyfriend David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden).

But as the scant evidence is read out in court, and both sides of the “story” are heard, will the judge convict the predatory teacher?

Elsewhere, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) is cornered and omits to mention she fancies Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) as Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) decides to find someone for her to date.

This is the first of tonight’s episodes.
