The mind games being played by teacher Maya Stepney with schoolboy Jacob Gallagher has continued to revile Emmerdale fans.
The 15-year-old has been struggling with his emotions and his feelings for Maya along with her controlling nature is making viewers uncomfortable.
There was outrage tonight though as the tension between the pair reached a point where Maya is struck by the green-eyed monster as Jacob tries to get some experience between the sheets.
With a teen house party in the village, Jacob thought he would hit on Liv and persuade her to help him lose his virginity.

No means no is not part of Jacob’s thinking though and his cringeworthy attempt to push Liv to sleep with him left some viewers disgusted, while others felt sorry that his head has been so messed up by Maya.
One viewer tweeted: "Jacob using Liv is incredibly sleazy after everything. The Maya thing has really messed him up though"
Another was upset about how Maya’s attention had turned Jacob to try and ‘groom’ Liv: "Omg Jacob now grooming Liv into sleeping with him so he can tell Maya he’s not a virgin"
With Liv putting Jacob in his place, news of a drunken teen party soon got back to his dad David, who was with Maya and the green-eyed monster appeared.

Viewers were outraged as a smoldering Maya arrived at the house and looked with daggers as her teenage conquest was disappearing up the stairs with Gabby.
One disgusted viewer tweeted: "Ew this storyline with Maya and Jacob is knocking me sick"
While another was fearful that this had happened before: "Jacob is definitely not the first boy Maya has groomed imo"
The premise of Maya being jealous made some feel queasy: "The whole Maya getting jealous is awful!"
The storyline is proving to be a turn-off for some viewers as the predatory nature of Maya becomes more apparent.
One annoyed fan tweeted: "Maya is actually despicable! I am RAGING right now"
With the Jacob’s infatuation with Maya showing no signs of slowing up and the teacher looking like she will make the most of the situation, this will be a difficult storyline for many viewers.
