Priya Sharma’s (Fiona Wade) life has been turned upside down following a fire in Emmerdale’s maize maze which has left her scarred for life.
Priya had been in a good place following years of self hatred which manifested an eating disorder that left her life in danger.
Everything has been going well at work, with her gaining more responsibility at Home Farm but the events at her planned HOP event have rendered her feeling like a failure.
Her blossoming romance with Ellis Chapman (Aaron Anthony) was fun but also full of affection and feeling but now that she is scarred and resents her own body image, she is pushing him away.
Feeling alone and isolated, Priya is struggling to cope with what has happened. Her former love rival Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) is attempting to get Priya to open up but when Priya looks at her, she only sees someone she deems more attractive than her.
Eventually, she breaks down a barrier and agrees to look at her scars for the first time with Leyla’s support. But faced with her changed appearance, Priya struggles to come to terms with how things have changed.
And when the mention of food is discussed in her presence, dark thoughts of low self esteem stir.
Will Priya suffer a relapse?
