EMMERDALE star Paige Sandhu has confirmed she is leaving the soap.
The actress – who plays serial killer Meena Jutla in the ITV soap – has teased the dramatic end for her character.
She joined the soap in September 2020 as Manpreet Sharma’s estranged sister but has quickly become a soap favourite.
Revealed as a psychopath last year, Meena has gone on to murder three villagers during her reign of terror.
She pushed Leanna Cavanagh over the bridge to her death, she beat Andrea Tate and left her to burn alive in a fire, and then bludgeoned Ben Tucker to death at the HOP.
Last week viewers watched as she tried and failed to kill Dawn Taylor and Billy Fletcher.
She was caught by Liam Cavanagh and he tried to kill her but failed.
Now in police custody Meena has confessed to killing Ben, but insists it was self-defence.

It even left her in tears.
“The ending’s incredible, better than I could ever have imagined, and I have already started crying,” she told the Mirror.
“[Meena] is a psychopath and believes nobody will ever get the better of her. Psychopaths are incapable of feeling fear like we can.”
