Emmerdale’s latest love triangle just got even more complicated following Pete Barton and Leyla Harding’s surprise engagement – and we mean surprise, as the groom-to-be didn’t actually mean to propose and he’s having an affair with his fiancee’s best mate who now thinks she might be pregnant…

As Pete and Leyla celebrated getting back together in tonight’s episode with an impromptu gathering in the Woolpack, the champagne popped as the pair put Pete’s refusal of Ms Harding’s proposal earlier in the week behind them. Realising she’d pushed her man into the idea of marriage, Leyla agreed to stop with the wedding hints (although running a wedding planning business must give a girl ideas).

However, as Pete knelt down on the floor to pick up the wire cage that had flown off the cork, Leyla caught his eye and he froze – caught up in the moment a Friends-style misunderstanding quickly ensued where Leyla thought her fella was about to pop the question and the whole pub fell silent with anticipation…

Crumbling under the pressure, Pete was like a rabbit in the headlights and found himself delivering an unplanned (and unintentional) proposal to a thrilled Leyla who swiftly accepted. So clearly the idea of getting hitched wasn’t still on her mind at all in any way…

As Priya Kotecha walked in ready to expose her and Pete’s affair to her best friend, her face was a picture as Leyla delivered the news while Pete just looked shellshocked. And when Leyla asked her to be maid of honour, the awkwardness went off the scale.

Heartbroken Priya made her excuses and left the pub, faking her excitement for Leyla – but bumping into Nicola King outside, she confessed she thought she might be pregnant…

Next week, Priya confesses to a stunned Pete she might be carrying his baby, then takes a test – which Leyla discovers. Is Priya pregnant, and will Leyla find out about the affair?
