David explodes with rage at child abuser Maya in Emmerdale

David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) is finally about to come face to face with Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein), his ex who groomed and abused his teenage son Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Platt) in Emmerdale.

After the truth was exposed and Maya as tackled by Leyla Harding (Roxy Shihadi), she disappeared with Jacob in tow as they vowed to start a new life together but Jacob was overwhelmed at leaving everything behind and Maya became frustrated with her struggles to control him.

Believing he had been secretly visiting David, Maya packed her bags and fled but Jacob gets in touch with her and they arrange to meet up at the cricket pavilion so that they can flee again. However, David has asked Ryan Stocks (James Moore) to install software to track Jacob’s messages on his laptop and he races to the scene before they can disappear.

Coming face to face with Maya for the first time since he found out what she had done, David loses it and calls her out on her actions. And it’s too late for Maya to escape as the police cars soon make themselves known and she is arrested.

But while David is certain that he has done the right thing, Jacob refuses to forgive him, still believing he is in love with Maya.

Matthew recently said: ‘David absolutely believes he has done the right thing. Now that he knows the truth, he absolutely despises Maya.There’s no emotion over losing his girlfriend. That completely goes out of the window and it’s now pure, unadulterated hate. David wants Maya to go away to prison and for the key to be thrown away.
