Emmerdale fans seriously distracted by David Metcalfe’s striking new look


EMMERDALE’S David Metcalfe is unrecognisable with striking new haircut.

The shopkeeper, played by Matthew Wolfenden, has been forced to sell up in the current economic crisis.

David shocked viewers with his new buzzcut

Will David and Leyla rekindle their romance?

After putting up the For Sale signs, David’s ex Leyla reassured him nobody would buy the shop before Christmas.

However, fans were more interested in David’s new buzzcut look.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “Liking David’s new haircut, he just needs to stop whinging…”

Another wrote: “Has David had a haircut since last night?”

No data found

A third penned: “David had enough money for a haircut!”

David is struggling financially and dad Eric refuses to help.

He confirmed that he’s spoken to step-son Jacob and decided to sell the house as well as the shop.

Does this mean Matthew is leaving the ITV soap?

One fan thinks: “Wonder whether David will be leaving the village?”

Another theorised: “David & Leyla can ride off into the sunset together.”

David has been getting close to ex Leyla.

Meanwhile, Victoria is over as she lost all trust in him when he put a speeding fine in her name and almost lost her her license.

David and Leyla have a lot of history.

They first got together in 2009 and in 2010 were almost torn apart when David found out about Leyla’s secret son, Jacob, who now considers David as his dad.

More recently David covered for Leyla and tried to get help for her when he discovered her drugs problem.

With both their relationships currently on the rocks, could romance once again be on the cards for Leyla and David?

Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV.
