Preg­nant by Pete?

Leyla is stunned to catch Priya with a preg­nancy test

TV Times - - Soaps -

There are lots of nat­u­ral­born love cheats in Em­merdale, but Pete Bar­ton isn’t one of them. He fan­cies Priya Sharma like mad, but the guilt of their af­fair is weigh­ing him down and it isn’t helped by the fact that Leyla takes be­ing loved-up to new ex­tremes.

Un­for­tu­nately for him, things are about to get a whole lot worse, as Priya is wor­ried that she might be preg­nant with his baby.

At the start of the week, Leyla isn’t look­ing quite as joy­ous as she has been do­ing in re­cent weeks. She’s up­set and dis­ap­pointed in the fact that Pete didn’t pick up on the spon­ta­neous idea of them hav­ing an im­promptu uni­corn-themed wed­ding, and is hurt by his reaction to her mar­riage pro­posal.

In a bid to let her down gen­tly, he ex­plains that now is not a good time to get hitched be­cause he’s broke. The ex­cuse buys him a lit­tle time, but then, just as he is breath­ing a huge sigh of re­lief, along comes Priya to de­liver some shock­ing news. He is left reel­ing when she sug­gests she might be hav­ing a baby and he could be a dad.

‘It is dif­fi­cult for Priya, be­cause Leyla is her clos­est friend,’ says Fiona Wade, who plays the newly sin­gle busi­ness­woman. ‘Priya has been through a lot and didn’t think about Leyla when she de­cided to sleep with Pete. She hadn’t re­ally spo­ken to him prop­erly be­fore and when it hap­pened she re­alised she had feel­ings for him. Now, she is feel­ing just aw­ful. A baby would make things re­ally com­pli­cated.’

Af­ter talk­ing to Pete, Priya steels her­self to do a preg­nancy test, but stupidly leaves it ly­ing around for Leyla to find. Does Priya have a baby on board? And, if so, will

Leyla guess who the daddy is?
