He then messages Maya telling him to meet him at the cricket pavilion so they can run off together - but they are unbeknownst to both of them being watched by David through the spyware.

A furious David then meets Maya to confront her - and she pleads with him to let her leave the village.

She ends up pushing past him, only to be greeted by policemen who then bundle her into the back of their car.

Louisa Clein - who plays Maya - recently opened up about about the backlash surrounding the controversial storyline during an appearance on Lorraine.

She said: "There's a lot more of the story to tell but it's moving towards an end.

"We've had a real mixed reaction, we've obviously had people who are incredibly shocked, which is right.

"We don't want to tell a romantic, titillating story.

"We've had this mixture of people saying 'please make it stop now, we've had enough' but others saying 'thank you for telling this story'."
