SCHEMING teacher Maya Stepney will step up her plan to groom schoolboy Jacob Gallagher in Emmerdale next week as she manipulates his friendships.
The move – which will see the pervert isolate 15-year-old Jacob from long-term friends Liv Flaherty and Gabby Thomas – is another ploy to get her claws into the teen, who is the adopted son of her boyfriend, David Metcalfe.
Maya will be seen deliberately stirring up trouble between the trio, causing a rift between Jacob, Liv and Gabby – who he lost his virginity to last month.
Fans of the ITV soap have watched in horror as Maya – who is played by Louisa Clein – has manipulated her young student while continuing a relationship with David.
Viewers were left sickened last week after Maya pounced on Jacob in a classroom where she pulled up his jumper and snogged him on a desk.
The pair were interrupted before things went any further by another member of staff hammering on the door – but viewers were reaching for the sick bucket.
Many were raging over the storyline’s latest twist, with one tweeting: “Maya, you mind gaming, sick grooming female paedophile!!!”
Another said: “Pervert Maya needs to be caught soon. I hope the storyline won’t drag on and on.”
Others wrote: “This is making me feel ill " and: "Oh gawd…Maya needs locking up…”
One fan felt equally queasy, saying: “This Maya and Jacob storyline is makingme want to vomit.”
But they were soon cheering as Jacob finally decided to call time on their twisted fling after Maya refused to dump David for her schoolboy lover.
The schoolboy plucked up the courage to tell his abuser to back off after she refused to leave David, telling her: “I’m sick of it – we’re over.”

A third wrote:”Yessss Jacob dumped the pervert. Now she needs to be exposed.”
