6 Emmerdale spoilers for next week

1. Suzy is exposed

Will Moira learn the truth? ITV

Several weeks ago, Suzy confided in Leyla Cavanagh (Roxy Shahidi) that she used to work with Moira's daughter Holly - and she had worked out that she gave the young woman money for cocaine on the same night she died of a heroin overdose. And as Suzy and Priya Kotecha (Fiona Wade) prepare for the joint showcase between the HOP and Take A Vow, they have no idea that the slideshow includes a photo of Holly on the day she died.

As Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor Draper) and Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) start the presentation, Priya struggles when she sees an image of herself before she sustained burns last year - but the situation gets worse when Holly appears on the screen. Moira questions Suzy, and there's no way out as she has recognised Holly's dress from the day of her death; but Suzy still manages to lie.

With Suzy's girlfriend Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) aware that she knew Holly, she probes her for more details and Suzy finally confesses to her. When Moira arrives, they worry she has overheard, but instead she apologises for lashing out earlier. Vanessa is then left disappointed when Suzy doesn't tell Moira everything there and then, and Suzy begs Vanessa to keep her secret. But with Vanessa remembering all too well what Moira went through, will she agree?

She's relieved when Liv offers to pay him, but Vinny continues to worry that Liv's plan could backfire. Terry smugly takes the cash, seemingly happy to get rid of Sandra. As Liv later suggests Sandra gets a job, Vinny's mum Mandy (Lisa Riley) is taken aback over her presence but Liv is pleased when Mandy offers Sandra work at the salon.
