Huge twist alert! (Pictures: ITV)
Suzy Merton (Martelle Edinborough) arrived in Emmerdale apparently as a new love interest for Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick), but since her first appearance it’s started to become apparent that she has more connections to the village than we first suspected.
It was quickly revealed that Suzy and Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) were old friends whose relationship went way back, and eventually we discovered that the two of them have been using cocaine together.
Coming up, there’s a shock revelation that connects Suzy to a tragic death years ago.

In 2016 Holly Barton (Sophie Powles) was tragically found dead by her mother, Moira (Natalie J. Robb). She died of a heroin overdose after attending a wedding with Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson), in a shock storyline that had massive impact.
Suzy’s connection to Holly is revealed after she suggests to Moira that she could make some money by hiring out her barns for weddings. But when she mentions using the adjoining field, Moira gets upset because this is where Holly is buried.
Suzy doesn’t know this, but Leyla nods at a picture of Holly to explain Moira’s reaction, and Suzy is stunned to recognise the face.
Later, she admits to Leyla that she knew Holly. We know that Suzy is a long-time drug user – could she have been connected to Holly’s tragic death?
