Emmerdale spoilers: Grooming victim Jacob Gallagher says he’ll wait for peado Maya Stepney as she returns to the village

GROOMING victim Jacob Gallagher proves he still doesn’t understand he was abused as he promises to wait for paedophile Maya Stepney in Emmerdale next week.

Despite everything the twisted teacher has put him through, her schoolboy victim vows they will still be together eventually.

Meanwhile, vile Maya – played by Louisa Clein – will be seen lurking in the shadows, waiting for a chance to speak to Jacob.

Actor Matthew Wolfenden, who plays Jacob’s guilt-ridden dad David Metcalfe, recently revealed that Maya’s arrest is the start of a new story for his character and Jacob.

The teenager is still in love with Maya – who was David’s girlfriend – and is hoping to get back together with her.

Matthew says: "David absolutely believes he has done the right thing. Now that he knows the truth, he absolutely despises Maya.

"There's no emotion over losing his girlfriend. That completely goes out of the window and it's now pure, unadulterated hate. David wants Maya to go away to prison and for the key to be thrown away.

"Jacob actually witnesses Maya being handcuffed and put into the police car.

"He's obviously devastated and thinks that David has completely ruined his life. He still wants to be with Maya and thinks they're in love.

"This is the start of the hard times for David and Jacob. The fact that Maya has been arrested is not the end of the storyline. I think it's the beginning of the next chapter.

"I don't know what's going to happen next, because as far as Jacob thinks, David has ruined his life. I don't know if he's ever going to come around to the fact that David hasn't. It's definitely not going to be a quick fix."

Meanwhile Emmerdale fans are convinced that Maya’s ex-husband, Liam Cavanagh, is key to making sure the vile sexual predator is jailed for life.

Last week David outed Maya as a peado in the Woolpack, leaving the locals shocked.

But as he spoke, Liam – the village doctor – looked shifty, and it didn't go unnoticed by viewers.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "I think the Doc knows something about Maya #Emmerdale."

Another added: "Does Liam the DR know something about Maya? His face says it all. #Emmerdale."

A third agreed, writing: "@emmerdale OOH! Ellis, Liam and Leanna appear to be dropping Maya right in it! Now we just need Liv to confess her blackmail and then it's curtains! #Emmerdale."

Meanwhile a fourth tweeted: "Dr Liam looked a bit odd when David announced Maya's guilt to the pub… has Maya tried it on with Leanna's boyfriend or something? #emmerdale."
