SUZY Merton hasn’t had the easiest time in the Dales but is slowly finding her mark after her dark past with drugs was exposed.
Sadly, her partner Vanessa Woodfield finds her with Leyla Cavanagh, seemingly rekindling with their vices next week in Emmerdale.
The character played by Martelle Edinborough made her first appearance in the eponymous village earlier this year.
She was soon exposed for her involvement in Holly Barton’s death.
Since then, Suzy has cleaned up her act and is working hard on her relationship with Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick).
But the village vet has been showing some clear trust issues since they decided to give their romance another go.
There’s no doubt in Vanessa’s mind – both of them have started using again.
Viewers will remember that both Suzy and Leyla bonded as they shared an addiction to cocaine before getting the help they needed.
Vanessa is furious, convinced Suzy is back on the drugs but it’s revealed she got the wrong end of the stick.
