Viewers have been left sickened by paedophile Maya Stepney sleeping with schoolboy Jacob Gallagher.
An Ofcom spokesman told The Sun Online: “We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, before deciding whether or not to investigate.”
Monday's episode attracted more than 30 complaints alone.
Viewers watched as teacher Maya climbed on top of 16-year-old Jacob and told the schoolboy "Happy Birthday" before they slept together.
One fan tweeted: "Nah do I have to write to Ofcom because #EMMERDALE NEED TO END THIS GROOMING STORYLINE. Maya is disgusting!"
Another said: "@Ofcom why is @ITV going with this stupid line on emmerdale with Maya & Jacob, what message is that sending out."
Someone else added: "Sick of the maya amd Jacob storyline…. Pedophile teacher groom him for a year until he's of age get her caught already."
One more agreed and said on Twitter: "This weird storyline gives me the creeps! Hope ends soon!"
Another added: "Emmerdale time folks jakey and Maya is annoying me
As another viewer said: "David is so stupid #emmerdale or is he blind"
The despised Emmerdale villain almost bedded Jacob last week.
There’s not been any official comment from Emmerdale about what will happen to Maya when she's eventually caught.
She's been subtly grooming her boyfriend’s teenage son for months.
Fans are convinced evil teacher Maya is now PREGNANT with Jacob's baby.
One wrote: "Maya is clearly going to get pregnant #emmerdale".
Another said: "@emmerdale wonder how long it will before we see Mya pregnant seen as soapstars don’t use contraception!"
A third said: "How long is this story line going to drag out?! I can’t deal with it anymore..what’s the chances maya ends up pregnant or something with Jacobs baby!"
