David cast out as Jacob reveals his secret amid Maya row in Emmerdale
The in-fighting among those impacted by the crimes of Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) continued to accelerate tonight when Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) lashed out in the wake of her being attacked by revealing to Tracy Shankley (Amy Walsh) that David had been up to his old tricks with Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi).
The news that Mayahad been beaten up was horrific for Jacob and he instantly accused his dad of being involved – and was even willing to let the police know that he was to blame. Worried that Maya would try and frame him, David headed to the hospital to have it out with Maya, who admitted that it was just a random woman who attacked her.

But as Leyla tried to restore peace, a bitter Jacob branded David a hypocrite and said that he had been spending his time trying to have a one night stand with Leyla. As Jacob stormed off, Tracy made her disgust with David know, berating him for not putting his son first.
