Emmerdale compared to Leaving Neverland as paedophile Maya grooms another teen

Emmerdale viewers were sickened as Maya told Jacob she ‘loves’ him – then turned her attention to another teen

Emmerdale viewers were sickened tonight as paedophile Maya groomed another teenager.

The vile teacher continued her manipulation with Jacob, who she slept with in a hotel and the village hall, with even more mind games.

Jacob finally called an end to their illicit relationship after he was forced to listen to her having sex with dad David.

After being told to “get lost”, scheming Maya turned the tables by confessing that she was in LOVE with the schoolboy.

She said: “I only want you. I am doing everything I can for us to be together. To grab ever second. Oh for god sake Jacob, open your eyes. I love you.”

If that wasn’t bad enough, Maya then turned her attention to Liv Flaherty.

The teacher sat down with Jacob’s girlfriend in the cafe in a bid to use her to get to her young lover.

Thanking Liv for looking out for him, Maya said: “Jacob doesn’t understand how important he is to us. That I will always have his back.

“I want him to be able to come to me because his happiness matters most, more than anything.”

To make sure her secret was kept safe, Maya told Liv not to mention that they had spoken.

Liv defended Maya and asked Jacob if it worth giving her and David such a hard time.

Liv said: “She’s trying her hardest. She seemed dead upset. She cares and seemed clearly bothered you’re unhappy.”

Maya’s devious plan worked to perfection as Jacob told Maya that he loved her too.

The pair then shared a snog as they cemented their newfound relationship status.

When will Maya be exposed?

Disgusted Emmerdale viewers took to Twitter after watching the sick scenes.

One viewer said: “Maya takes manipulation and mind games to a whole new level. The way she controls Jacob is disgusting. What is it gonna take for David to see the truth about her?”

“This Maya and Jacob storyline really needs to be brought to a close soon. Getting on my nerves,” added another.

A third said: “The Maya and Jacob grooming storyline in #Emmerdale is making me feel as uncomfortable as watching #LeavingNeverland and hearing the accusations”
