Jai & Megan are scared for Eliza
ELIZA’S HEALTH SCARE HAS HUGE REPERCUSSIONS…
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?
