Vanessa was due to leave with girlfriend Suzy, but after finding her with Leyla Harding in their office looking tired, she accused them of being back on drugs.

A hurt Suzy left, and Leyla revealed the truth – that Vanessa had got the wrong end of the stick and had jumped to conclusions.

Suzy was devastated by the betrayal but later discovered Vanessa had been lying to her about her relationship with best friend Rhona Goskirk.

Viewers know the pair had a brief fling years ago when Vanessa fell for Rhona – but it ended almost as soon as it began.

However Vanessa never bothered to share that with her girlfriend – so Suzy was furious at her for the lack of honesty.

Combining that with her assumption that Suzy was on drugs was the last straw for the couple.

Suzy told her: “There’s never been any trust. And no amount of snowy mountains in the world is going to change that. 

“We’ll only end up hating each other and I don’t want that. Tell Johnny I’m sorry.”

With that she left Vanessa sobbing at her kitchen table and the vet for a new life in Canada.

Viewers were in tears at the scenes. 

One wrote: “That was a good twist – I was expecting Suzy to leave with Vanessa to Canada where they’d break up from there”

A second said: “I was hoping Susie would go with Vanessa. #Emmerdale”

Another simply added: “Suzy and vanessa” alongside a string of crying faces.
