Meanwhile, a devious Meena relishes in the destruction and pain she’s caused. 

Fans of the soap were left stunned as following a tussle atop the village’s humpbacked bridge, Meena chucked Leanna over the edge, leaving her dead in the river below.

Meena was compelled to kill off Leanna following her discovery that she had murdered before.   

Meena had previously revealed that a friend from her past, Nadine, took her own life.

Yet it was later unearthed that there was more to the story than that – and that Meena was instrumental in Nadine’s death. 

Producers for the ITV soap had warned fans that something grizzly was going to take place in the sleepy village.

Promising that viewers will be ‘left on the edge of their seat’, they teased that ‘dominated by her own ego, Meena is hellbent on getting what she wants and ready to eliminate anyone who stands in her way’.

In recent weeks, viewers have seen her behaviour become increasingly erratic. 

Emmerdale Producer, Kate Brooks revealed: ‘Meena has been a whirlwind since arriving in the village, scheming and manipulating people and situations to get what she wants and causing nothing but drama and unnecessary heartache in the process.

‘Her seemingly caring façade belies her true persona; a woman with a murky past and no conscience.’

She added: ‘Meena’s lack of empathy is often perceived by those around her a little more than spoilt petulance, however, we soon learn the true extent of her narcissistic and amoral character.’

Kate concluded: ‘Malevolent Meena will wreak havoc in the village and once she has you in her sights, no one is safe from her devious and dangerous machinations.

‘This storyline will see the viewers gripped as they realise that this is a woman who is capable of anything and everything.’  

Speaking about her character, actress Paige said: ‘It’s great to play a character that is on a completely different wavelength to everyone else, who always has a hidden agenda and will do anything to get what she wants.

‘Her lack of empathy and her playfulness make her a very exciting character. She’s the strangest character I’ve played for sure, but also the most fun.’

Earlier in June, viewers were left horrified when Meena tried to kill Andrea Tate’s (Anna Nightingale) pet dog Princess – offering fans a taste of just what she is capable of.

In an attempt to split up Andrea and Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin), Meena lured Andrea’s pet dog into a car before shutting the door and leaving the animal to overheat.

Thankfully, David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) spotted the dog, alerting Charles, who took her to the vets.
