Priya Kotecha (Fiona Wade) is facing new challenges everyday in her recovery in Emmerdale.
The character has suffered life-changing injuries after being caught up in the maze fire during the soap’s survival week.
Since then, Priya has returned from hospital and struggled to accept help from her friends and family.
Having a break from Rishi’s (Bhasker Patel) assistance, Priya smiled as Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) entered her bedroom to pay her a visit.
Leyla had some food for Priya and a few books to read but was reluctant to show her a new dress she had bought, which had a backless detail.
As Leyla and Priya got talking, topic turned to Priya’s now cold meal.
Leyla asked Priya how she was getting on with eating, knowing her friend first developed an eating disorder a few years ago.
Priya told Leyla that as she can barely move, she feels she’s getting ‘bigger and bigger’ after every calorie she consumes.
Leyla reminded her friend that the food was helping her heal, leaving Priya to say she is trying her best.
Suffice to say asking for help is something Priya is struggling to do, could she face an eating disorder relapse if she doesn’t talk about her current fears around her weight?
