A "gripping" new storyline on Emmerdale involving Meena Jutla is set to shock viewers and keep them on the "edge of their seats".

The popular ITV soap's producer Kate Brooks has promised that the character of Meena, played by Paige Sandhu, will be taking centre stage over the summer months.

So far, viewers have watched her controlling behaviour with David heighten, with Kate saying that the relationship will soon reach boiling point.

"From a real and very gripping story, to the wonderful Meena. Meena has rocked up in the village and has manipulated her way into people's affections," she said.


Kate added to The Mirror: "Now she is loved up with David. This is a woman who will do everything and anything to get what she wants. She won't be tied by anyone who gets in her way.

"This is just the start of a really gripping and enthralling story that will leave viewers on the edge of their seats, and shouting at the television as they struggle to keep up with Meena's impetuous and volatile ways."

Kate concluded that she hopes Meena's "whirlwind of a story" will "get the nation talking".

"It's a real whirlwind of a story that will hopefully get the nation talking and guessing what is gonna come next."

Meena's character, who is the sister of Manpreet Sharma, was introduced to Emmerdale last September.

Speaking previously of her character, actress Paige told The Metro: "Meena is wild and very intelligent in the way she can manipulate people to do what she wants.

"She knows how to work people, and she's a chameleon, depending on who she's talking to. "

"She wonders: 'What can I get out of this person?' So she's really fun to play."

Paige continued: "I would say with Meena, there's always a selfish desire underneath what can seem a shiny veneer.

"There's always something else going on, which is the interesting and complex thing about her."
