Your weekly spoilers for Monday 8 July to Friday 12 July

Hanna Fillingham

Emmerdale fans have been wondering what is wrong with Priya after noticing her odd behaviour, and the soap has confirmed in its latest spoilers that her eating disorder will be revisited. Priya's battle with anorexia was first addressed in a storyline in 2014 when she was pregnant with her daughter Amba. She later went to get help at a specialist unit for the sake of her unborn child. Elsewhere in the soap next week, Pollard brings Jacob and David closer together, while Amy and Kerry fall out. Victoria, meanwhile, is desperate to leave the village after everything gets too much for her – but will she go through with it?
