Emmerdale's Jacob Gallagher is still holding out hope for a future with Maya Stepney, as the grooming storyline is revisited again.

In scenes airing next week, Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) waits for his exam results but unfortunately, it's bad news and the results turn out to be disappointing.

David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden), Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi), and Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) are among those who try to remain positive. What they don't know is that Jacob is secretly planning for a future with Maya, still not realising that he was groomed and manipulated by the disgraced and imprisoned schoolteacher.

Jacob is later invited to lunch by a concerned Priya Kotecha (Fiona Wade).

Priya wants to help Jacob, but is left confused and upset when Jacob turns nasty and the meal turns into a tense row.

Although the storyline is being revisited, Maya won't be seen on screen.

Maya received a 12-month jail sentence earlier this summer, after pleading guilty to sending inappropriate texts to Jacob when he was 15.

The schoolteacher avoided facing more serious charges for her abuse of Jacob as the schoolboy had refused to give any evidence against her.

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
