Jai & Me­gan are scared for Eliza


Inside Soap - - CONTENTS - Laura Hef­fer­nan

Sneaky Jai hatches a plan to re­pair Leyla and Priya’s friend­ship this week – but with his plot in full swing, tragedy strikes him and Me­gan.

Fol­low­ing the ex­po­sure of her af­fair with Pete, Priya naively be­lieves it’s time for her former bestie Leyla to for­give her for bed­ding her fi­ancé – though un­sur­pris­ingly, be­trayed Leyla is still fu­ri­ous! And as Leyla’s anger to­wards his sis­ter spi­rals out of con­trol, Jai de­cides to play peace­maker be­tween the two women…

“The sit­u­a­tion comes to a head be­cause Leyla thinks she can carry on do­ing busi­ness with the Shar­mas, while hold­ing a grudge against Priya,” shares Chris Bis­son, aka Jai. “The re­la­tion­ship isn’t go­ing to work un­der those con­di­tions. Jai ac­cuses Leyla of hav­ing dou­ble stan­dards, be­cause ob­vi­ously she had a fling with him be­hind Me­gan’s back!

Pete was also part of the af­fair with Priya, but she’s be­ing far less harsh to­wards him.”

With Leyla re­fus­ing to re­lent, her pay­back takes a se­ri­ous turn when she sets the po­lice on to in­no­cent Priya – who ends up be­ing ques­tioned about Emma! Priya is out­raged when she dis­cov­ers Leyla tipped them off, and de­stroys a load of wed­ding favours in re­venge. How­ever, she’s no match for her op­po­nent – who teams up with Tracy to douse Priya in sticky syrup! Con­cerned that the feud could get worse, Jai de­cides to take con­trol.

“He gets in­volved be­cause he can see how des­per­ate Priya is to make up with Leyla, and also senses that even Leyla knows she’s gone too far after the trea­cle in­ci­dent,” grins Chris. “They need to pull it back, so Jai comes up with an idea to get them to­gether. He leaves Priya and Leyla in the house with Eliza, so they can’t start shout­ing and ar­gu­ing!”

As the ri­vals are forced to babysit Jai and Me­gan’s daugh­ter, Jai’s vi­sion of a truce fails to pan out, and it’s not long be­fore Leyla and Priya are bick­er­ing yet again. How­ever, their squab­ble is for­got­ten when they re­alise some­thing is se­ri­ously wrong with lit­tle Eliza.

“She has a fit, reignit­ing the is­sue of her pos­si­ble cere­bral palsy di­ag­no­sis,” sighs Chris. “Me­gan wants to know, but Jai is push­ing back against it since he’s not ready, and he’s also taken to heart the fact that the doc­tor said Eliza could be two be­fore they make a di­ag­no­sis.”

As the wor­ried par­ents wait for news of their daugh­ter’s con­di­tion, are Jai and Me­gan about to re­ceive the di­ag­no­sis they’ve been dread­ing?
