EMMERDALE fans are heartbroken for Leyla Harding and Liam Cavanagh as they called time on their marriage.

The couple married last year but have been beset with problems after the murder of his daughter Leanna, Leyla’s drug addiction and Liam’s grief.

Leyla Harding and Liam Cavanagh decided to go their separate ways tonight

And tonight after Leyla returned from rehab, they realised they had to split.

“With everything we have had thrown at us, I’m just trying to be honest,” Leyla said.

“Leanna’s death changed everything,” Liam admitted.

“It came weeks into our marriage and we never stood a chance. There’s no foundation. That’s why we’re floundering now, because there’s no us to get back to. We weren’t strong enough.”

“I did try to understand and I did try to support you,” said Leyla.

Liam then confronted Leyla about her addiction, insisting he couldn’t get passed it.

“I am not going to keep trying to prove myself and keep apologising,” she hit back.

“I hate the way you made me feel. Ashamed and disgusted. I don’t think we’re any good for each other. You’re not what I need. So that’s decided then.”

“I’ll go, it was your house first,” she added.

“I’ll go to Priya or David’s or somewhere. I’m more likely to relapse if I stay here where we’re making each other miserable.”

“But I’m going to be OK,” she said.

“I wish I could go back in time and see how lucky we were. I’ll never regret marrying you, I love you.”

“I love you too,” said Liam as the pair took off their wedding rings and parted.

Viewers were in tears at the scenes.

One wrote: “Leyla and Liam are over,” and a sad face emoji.

A second said: “my heart breaks for leyla but it’s all for the best #emmerdale.”
