Liam’s tragic secret
Since they walked down the aisle and said “I do” in June, Leyla and Liam’s relationship hasn’t been going well at all.
Liam’s behaviour has changed since the untimely death of Leanna, Liam’s little girl. The couple’s miscarriage has left an impression on Leyla.
Despite all the drama between them, Leyla’s suspicions grow when she observes her husband’s strange behaviour since he started at Hotten General.
In hopes of getting to the bottom of what’s going on, Leyla makes her way to the hospital, but is left confused and troubled when she discover he doesn’t actually work there.
Later on, Leyla confronts an evasive Liam, as she fears he’s hiding something from her.
Even worse, Mandy Dingle made a flippant comment about Leyla’s fears that Liam was having an affair with Bernice Schwarzstock while they were in the village.
Leyla then witnesses Liam putting flowers in the back seat of his car.
Leyla convinces her friend Priya Sharma that something is wrong and tells him to follow Liam. The mystery grows when Priya Sharma and Leyla follow Liam to a house marked ‘For Sale’.

Liam’s inability to tell the truth is even more painful to Leyla now.
Not satisfied with what she has discovered, Leyla continues her investigation into how Liam’s been spending his days by looking into his satnav history and soon Leyla comes to a decision.
Priya, a doubtful Priya, begins to question Leyla’s overall approach to the situation.
