Emmerdale fans are already missing singing, dancing, murdering Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) following her exit from the soap last night.

The evil character killed three village residents last year and came close to killing two more this week.

Holding Vinny (Bradley Johnson) and Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker) hostage, Meena was planning on gassing them to death, but the arrival of a suspicious Liam (Jonny McPherson) changed everything.

Saving Vinny and Manpreet, Liam also discovered the truth about Meena, including the fact she killed Leanna.

Setting off into the woods, Liam was desperate to confront Meena – but it never happened.

At the end of the episode, viewers saw Meena in a lorry next to a stranger, on her way to Glasgow.

As Meena prepares for life on the run, viewers are paying tribute to the character and are hoping it won’t be long until she returns.

‘Paige deserves a Bafta for her evil performance on #Emmerdale. Brilliant actor!’, one Twitter user wrote.


Another added: ‘The show is gonna be SO boring without Meena. This has been their best storyline, mainly thanks to the talent of Paige Sandhu, and Meena has already gone down a soap LEGEND’.

So, with fans missing Meena already, will she return in the near future?

Short answer: yes.

During a recent press event with Emmerdale bosses Jane Hudson and Laura Shaw, Metro.co.uk discovered there is still more to come with this storyline.

‘Judgement Day for Meena is coming. Whether she will get away with murder or not, you’ll have to wait to find out’, Jane said.

‘There are still some more twists and turns to be had and some you won’t see coming but I think we’re all agreed that Meena can do pretty much anything.

‘Judgement day is coming; it won’t play out quite as you expect and it will have a lasting effect on quite a few of our villagers. I think within the next few months Meena will get what’s coming to her.’

She may be in Glasgow, but it won’t be long until Meena makes her way back to the Dales – but who’s lives will she put in danger?
