Emmerdale star Jonny McPherson has confirmed that Meena Jutla will kill again after she brutally murdered Leanna last week.

Jonny's character Liam Cavanagh has been left devastated over his on-screen daughter Leanna's (Mimi Slinger) death on the hit ITV soap and now he has teased new developments in the storyline.

The actor, 39, has confirmed that the "evil" nurse will kill again and claim at least one more victim.

Talking to Metro, Jonny said: "I mean it’s difficult because Meena also provides Liam with somebody to talk to. She ends up positioning herself to allow him to talk to her.

"He finds a great deal of solace in Meena’s coldness about everything. It’s kind of a tonic after everyone else’s platitudes and apologies."

He added: "But Leanna will not be the last victim, that’s for sure!"

Next week will see Meena turn her attentions on Liam after murdering his daughter, which police have ruled as an "accidental fall", and manipulate him into destroying Leanna's belongings.

It comes as Emmerdale fans have been left fearing Jacob Gallagher could be Meena's next victim after he spotted that his late on-off girlfriend Leanna's ring was missing on Thursday's episode.

Since murdering Leanna, the evil nurse has been wearing her ring on a chain around her neck, which she has been proudly playing with around the village.

On Thursday's episode, Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) was left distressed after he discovered that Leanna's ring that he gave her was missing from both the crime scene and her personal belongings which were handed over by the police earlier this week, who have ruled her death as an "accidental fall".

Speaking to Leanna's father, Liam, which was in earshot of Meena, he said: "She had the engagement ring, only I couldn't see it anywhere. She was wearing it that day, I bought it for her, it was important! Did the police?"

Growing frustrated, Liam (Jonny McPherson), replied: "There wasn't a ring!" while Jacob protested: "Well, can you get them to check? She definitely had it on."

Meena then walked over as she asked: "What's happened?" while Jacob explained: "Leanna had a ring I gave her but it's gone missing!"

Soap watchers have already started worrying for Jacob and have feared he could be Meena's next victim due to spotting the missing piece of evidence and have predicted that the evil nurse could even frame him for the murder, especially after David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) gave her keys to their home.

One person said: "Could Meena actually end up framing Jacob with the ring now he's realised it's literally nowhere to be found? Subsequently leading to his arrest for Leanna's murder? Thereby getting one step closer to having David all to herself potentially? #Emmerdale."
