Emmerdale promises satisfying ending for Meena as she takes the stand at tense hearing

Emmerdale writer Sharon Marshall has promised a "satisfying end" for murderer Meena Jutla on the hit ITV soap as the evil character takes the stand at a tense hearing in upcoming scenes.

Speaking on Monday's This Morning, Sharon, 50, teased details about the Meena storyline, reassuring fans that they won't be "left screaming" at their screens.

Sharon said: "Very gripping, we've got the Manpreet [Sharma] versus Meena now. Meena said she wants Manpreet to come, I can promise you this is going to have a very satisfying end.

"You won't be left screaming, well, you might scream at the screen when all that is going on. When you see what she does…

"But it is going to be one of those that is a satisfying ending. I can tell you there's been some scenes filmed in a court… I'm allowed to say that. But is it quite what it seems?"

Next week on Emmerdale sees tension in the village ramp up as the residents nervously await the outcome of Meena's plea hearing.

The deranged nurse's sister Manpreet is particularly worried – especially when she learns that Charles Anderson and Liam Cavanagh can't discuss Meena's confession on the stand.

Meena is disappointed by the modest turn-out for her hearing and does what she can to unsettle everyone. To the court's surprise, Meena pleads guilty to the first of her many charges, but what game is she playing this time?

It comes as Emmerdale's new schedule started earlier this week as it goes head-to-head with EastEnders.

From Monday 7 March, Emmerdale’s air time has permanently changed from 7pm to 7.30pm, which means it will be in direct competition with EastEnders that starts at the same time on BBC One.

This comes as part of a planned new restructure of the times of the ITV soaps, as Coronation Street will also shift to 8pm for an hour long episode on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Emmerdale fans also have the added bonus of an hour-long episode on Thursdays, while the ITV soap will clash with EastEnders four days a week.

EastEnders won’t be airing on Fridays anymore as it has introduced an extra episode on Wednesday evenings.
