Emmerdale fans sickened as Maya exploits Jacob in shocking child porn twist

Emmerdale fans were left sickened tonight as the child abuse storyline took a dark twist.

Scheming Maya Stepney, who has been grooming Jacob Gallagher for months, continued to exploit the vulnerable teenager behind boyfriend David Metcalfe’s back.

In shocking scenes, Maya had her hands all over Jacob as she kissed the schoolboy again during their private tutoring lesson.

But their steamy snogging session was cut short when David unexpectedly returned home early from the gym and nearly caught them out.

In a bid to impress Maya, confused Jacob did something that could have shocking repercussions.

He sent the snap, which due to his age is child pornography, to Maya while she was on a date with David at the B&B.

Young survivors of sexual abuse and Barnardo’s experts have met with Emmerdale actors and producers to advise on the storyline to highlight the vulnerability of boys to sexual exploitation.

Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said: “Sexual abusers are manipulative and controlling. They will exploit a child’s vulnerability and coerce them into sexual behaviour. Abusers gain a child’s trust with affection and gifts but can then use blackmail and threats as a method of control.

“Our specialist UK-wide services support thousands of children who have been sexually exploited by both men and women. The grooming of boys by adult women is a taboo subject but, like all grooming, it causes lasting harm, and problems with trust, affection, love and sex.”

*Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7pm
