Liam Cavanagh (played by Jonny McPherson) has been acting suspiciously in recent weeks as his wife, Leyla Cavanagh (Roxy Shahidi), started to pick up on his evasive actions. However, as she turns to her best friend, Priya Kotecha (Fiona Wade) for help, Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) soon plants a seed in her head that he could be having an affair with ex-lover Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles). Could the stress of his marriage become too much for Liam, leaving him seeking attention elsewhere?
In Tuesday’s episode, Leyla found herself following her husband around to try and see why he had been lying to her about his job at Hotten General hospital.
The couple had recently had an argument regarding Liam’s job after she found out he wasn’t actually working at the hospital.
As Priya greeted the pair, Leyla told her: “Something really weird is going on, I went to the hospital yesterday like we said, turns out he doesn’t work there.”
Shocked, Priya replied: “What?” with Leyla exclaiming, “I know! And then I came home, and I was questioning him about, he got all defensive and made out that I was paranoid.”
Trying to find a rational explanation, Priya said: “Okay, well maybe he’s working on a different ward?”
But Leyla refused to acknowledge the premise and said: “Maybe he’s got something to hide?”
Later, Leyla and Priya walked into the Take a Vow office with the former exclaiming: “In the morning, he gets dressed and then he gets in his car but where he goes is a mystery.”
Calming her friend down, Priya replied: “I am sure there is a perfectly good explanation for all of this.”
Mandy then walked in, moaning to Priya: “Oh great, you’re in, I need to s**g Bernice off before my next customer comes in.
“You think she would be in a hurry to get home, you know, support Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) throughout this whole Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) nightmare, she text me.
“Saying she’s got shingles from all the stress, she’s hold up at the hotel, come on I don’t buy it, she’s met her fancy man whilst she’s been away.”
The news of Bernice being in a hotel piqued Leyla’s interest, prompting her to say to Priya: “Oh god, Liam and Bernice, they just happen to go AWOL at the same time?”
Not wanting to indulge in her overthinking, Priya comforted her and said: “Surely not,” but Leyla wasn’t having any of it.

“He’s vulnerable, she’s a predator it’s easy pickings. He specifically said, ‘I’m not having an affair,’ which is what someone who is having an affair would say!”
Calling Mandy back into the room, Leyla said: “That hotel that Bernice is staying at, what’s the name of it?”
Just before Leyla and Priya set off to go to the hotel Bernice was staying in, they spotted Liam in the village with some flowers getting into his car.
After following him to his destination, Leyla was soon riddled with guilt as it was revealed he had gone to a spot which he and deceased daughter Leanna Cavanagh (Mimi Slinger) used to go to.
Later, Liam joined Priya and Leyla as they were having a drink in the village and he continued to lie about where he had been during the day.
Priya turned to Leyla and said: “He’s a really good liar, why didn’t you say anything?”
“Because he would rather lie to my face than tell me the truth, and every time he does it, it’s like a knife in my heart,” Leyla confessed.
“I have tried so many times to get him to open up, I would support him through anything, but he just keeps shutting me out.”
Leyla told Priya that Liam had been claiming to have worked at the hospital for a couple of weeks, leading Priya to tell her: “Do you really think he’s been gardening all that time?
“So, he’s been lying to you, he’s hiding his grief, and we still don’t know what he’s been doing for eight hours of every day, Leyla this is really unhealthy.
“Liam could be having a full-on breakdown, and the longer you leave it, the worse it’s going to get,” she expressed.
Could Liam just be finding a way to handle his grief and hiding it from his wife?
Or has he secretly been embarking on an affair with Bernice, which Leyla may soon expose?
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
