Emmerdales Meena actress confirms exit and says shell miss everything about her

She’s made a huge impact as Emmerdale’s murdering Meena Jutla, but actress Paige Sandhu has now confirmed she’ll be leaving the ITV soap and teased details of how it is the ‘beginning of the end’ of her story.

Paige, who joined the soap last year as the unhinged nurse, is currently front and centre of the show having taken her sister Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) hostage.

And things are only set to get worse next week when she also takes Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson) prisoner and plans to kill them both.

While fans will have to wait and see the outcome of the gripping storyline, soap star Paige has confirmed that, like all good soap villains, her story will have to come to a dramatic close.

Opening up in a brand new interview with Inside Soap, Paige explained that time is running out for Meena as she said that the other villages are getting suspicious, marking the ‘beginning of the end.’

Speaking about her top-secret soap exit and what she’ll miss most about playing her soap alter-ego when it comes, Paige said: “I will miss everything because I love her.”

Paige went on to say: “I think Meena’s hilarious, she’s got so much charisma, she’s so strange and odd.”

The actress added: “She’s so much fun to play. Going to those dark places is really fulfilling but then there’s that slightly comedic edge.”

Paige then concluded: “I love her flamboyant nature. I’ll miss everything about her.”

This isn’t the first time that Paige has teased details of Meena’s downfall, as fans beg for her to be caught for her crimes.

During a recent appearance on ITV lunchtime show Loose Women, the panel grilled Paige on whether the net was finally closing in on the villain.

The star replied that she thought it was only a matter of time before her web of lies came back to haunt her.

She explained: “Because Meena's caused such a crazy amount of stuff that's happened in Emmerdale, she's starting to get this feeling of invincibility.”

Paige continued: “That's potentially going to be her downfall because her behaviour is getting more and more outlandish and people are starting to cotton on.”

However, at the time, Paige said there was still plenty more Meena action to come.

She smiled: “I can't tell you if there will be anymore murders or not, but she definitely gets worse. She gets worse than she's been so far. Like, really worse!"
