Emmerdale grooming plot takes dark turn as Maya causes trouble for Jacob

Maya Stepney brings more destruction for teen Jacob Gallagher on Emmerdale next week, as she begins to isolate him amid the soap’s grooming storyline.

Jacob, played by actor Joe-Warren Plant, developed feelings for his dad’s girlfriend Maya in October last year.

But a harmless crush took a sinister turn when Maya kissed Jacob, before convincing him she too had romantic feelings for him.

Since then, Maya has been manipulating Jacob, with him willing to do anything to impress her as the dark plot continues.

Next week, Maya decides to target his friendship group, consisting of former flame Gabby Thomas and pal Liv Flaherty.

It appears she could be about to tear the trio apart as she continues to isolate him, but just how far will she go?

While Maya’s exact plans have yet to be revealed, it’s thought the character will encourage her stepson to part ways with the girls as she continues to get inside his head.

The latest twist comes after Jacob lost his virginity to Gabby just weeks ago, believing Maya would be more interested in him once he’d had sex.

Shortly before this, Jacob lied that he had slept with Liv again to impress his stepmother, before it was revealed that he’d been lying.

This didn’t stop him making another pass at Liv moments before sleeping with Gabby though, desperate for Maya to see him as an adult.

It didn’t have the desired affect though, as it pushed Maya further away, or so he believed.

But teacher Maya recently grew closer to Jacob yet again, even leaving viewers sickened when she snogged him in a classroom last week.

Emmerdale continues weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
