Is David Metcalfe leaving Emmerdale?

It’s unclear if David Metcalfe will be leaving the soap, but actor Matthew seemed to hint his character is safe.

David has been enjoying a relationship with Meena, but in recent weeks she has become obsessive and jealous of David's relationship with his son Jacob.

Speaking to Holly and Phil, Matthew said: "Basically if there’s a serial killer in the village, no one is safe. I can’t tell you who it’s gonna be, I can’t say a word!

"Meena is such a dark character, she’s a bit of a bunny boiler. I think David could definitely be in for it!"

Holly then asked Matthew about a fan theory which predicts Meena will convince David to help her murder someone.

To which Matthew replied: "The problem with murdering on a soap is you're never going to last very long on there.

"You can't be a serial killer, or a serial killer's righthand man, without there being a sticky end so I'm hoping that's not going to happen."

Phillip then said: "Uh, he's not dead!

Emmerdale viewers will have to wait until Thursday to find out what happens, unless they head over to the ITV Hub where all the episodes are available to watch.
