EMMERDALE fans are concerned for David Metcalfe after girlfriend Meena Jutla showed worrying signs. The shopkeeper - who is played by actor Matthew Wolfenden in the ITV soap - reunited with unhinged girlfriend Meena Jutla after she became jealous and obsessed about his friendship with Leyla. Meena had become convinced David was sleeping with Leyla when in actual fact he was helping Leyla’ s boyfriend Liam propose to her. Tonight Meena issued a half apology and seemed to win David back over.

Emmerdale ' s Meena Jutla was left red-faced in Friday's (May 7) episode. Planted firmly in the middle of Ethan Anderson's estranged mum storyline, where Meena 's sister Manpreet tried to help him track her down, the conniving villager has been secretly masquerading as his mum via text. It all came crashing down in tonight's scenes though, when Manpreet had a sneaky suspicion there was something going on as Meena kept ignoring phone calls. With Meena out of shot grabbing her a coffee, Manpreet grabbed her sister's phone from her bag (which she claims she found in the village) and

Emmerdale appears to have revealed the show's next big villain, with Meena Jutla taking sinister steps in her mission to reunite Manpreet Sharma and Charles Anderson.

Meena has spent months trying to convince her sister that she should end things with her husband Rishi and reconcile with her ex-fiancé Charles, although Manpreet has repeatedly refused to listen to her advice.

With Charles now in the early stages of a relationship with Andrea Tate, another obstacle now stands in the way of Meena's matchmaking mission – and that's where Thursday night's startling scenes came in.

Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) in Emmerdale hasn’t been in the village for long and already she’ s causing trouble. After she messed with Rishi Sharma’ s (Bhasker Patel) satnav in last night’ s (December 7) episode, tonight Rishi was doing nothing but thanking Meena after she saved him when he drove off the road. Viewers know Meena was responsible for Rishi’ s pills disappearing and Manpreet’ s (Rebecca Sarker) missing phone, as it was all part of her revenge plan after Manpreet sabotaged Meena ’ s relationship with David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden).

Rishi Sharma (Bhasker Patel) accidentally drives off the road in a storyline airing next month and finds himself only semi-conscious.

The sun was beating down mercilessly on the vehicle, creating an unbearable temperature for poor Princess. Fortunately, the cute pooch was rescued when David Metcalfe found her struggling in the vehicle, but she was in a bad way with signs of heatstroke and needed emergency attention at the vets.

Meena got her way when Charles and Andrea were forced to cancel their trip due to the upsetting events of the day.

The identity of the culprit was initially unclear until we saw that Meena was in possession of Princess's favourite toy, which she'd used to lure the animal into the car.

Emmerdale boss Kate Brooks has warned that we are going to see a dangerous and sinister side to Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu). Desperate to have David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) to herself, she will be consumed by anger and jealousy as he spends time with son Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant). Meena has already shown an obsessive and territorial side when it comes to David and elsewhere in the village, she has take joy in scheming and causing trouble. But this could be the beginning of a transition into a full blown villain capable of anything.

Is Emmerdale lining Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) up to be its next big threat? In a village that seems to breed no end of psychopaths, Meena is currently showing definite signs of joining the ranks of the unhinged. One of her current plotlines has seen her pose as the errant mum of Ethan Anderson (Emile John), using a burner phone to send him text messages that have raised (and then dashed) his hopes of a reunion. Meena ’ s aim is to bring Ethan’ s dad Charles (Kevin Mathurin) back into the orbit of her sister Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker), but it’ s a decidedly twisted way of staging a reconcilation.

While it's not the first time we've seen Meena up to no good, her shocking actions do now raise the question of just how far she'll go in order to get her own way.

Meena already crossed a line a few weeks ago when she impersonated Ethan's long-lost mum in some sneaky text messages, which was another convoluted way of drawing Manpreet closer to the Andersons again.

The nurse's latest scheme was on a whole other level, though, with Princess lucky to be alive. The RSPCA's website warns of the serious dangers of leaving dogs in cars on a warm day – even when it's 22 degrees outside, the temperature inside a vehicle can reach up to 47 degrees within an hour.

Another big question is why Meena is actually doing all of this – but answers are coming sooner than you may think.

We already know that Meena's schemes all revolve heavily around her relentless desire to see Manpreet and Charles back together.

Currently, it's unclear why Meena is so obsessed overseeing Manpreet with the "right" man – but Friday night's episode will offer some insight as some of her past is revealed.

Emmerdale producer Kate Brooks recently told Digital Spy and other media: "Meena has rocked the village and manipulated her way into people's affections. This is a woman who will do anything or everything to get what she wants.
