Emmerdale's Roxy Shahidi teases 'unexpected direction' for Gabby stalker plot

Emmerdale star Roxy Shahidi has said things will take a surprising turn after the revelation that Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) has been stalking Leyla Harding.

Gabby, clearly troubled after her mum Bernice left the village, has been angry with Leyla after Liam Cavanagh (Jonny MacPherson) moved on from Bernice with her.

She has launched a campaign of terror against Leyla leaving her fearing for her safety.

In upcoming scenes Gabby’s shocking actions will be revealed, and Roxie told fans to prepare for more shocks.

Speaking on Thursday’s This Morning, Roxy said: ‘Gabby is so young and in a vulnerable position. At least it’s not a scary person from her past.

‘It’s disorientating, it’s the last person she would have thought of, they have no history together, so she’s in shock at the moment.

‘She has ability to empathise with people who are young and vulnerable as she was herself.’

Roxy went on: ‘It’s an interesting relationship and will go in a direction you won’t expect.

‘It was enjoyable to film and Rosie is a talented young actress who I haven’t had much to do with until recently, but I think she’s phenomenal.’

Emmerdale fans recently saw Leyla left terrified after she saw a hooded figure trashing the Take A Vow office.

Gabby – whose face was hidden – tried to flee the scene but in dramatic scenes Leyla chucked a vase at her, causing a bloody injury.

The teen later discovered a nasty wound on her arm, so if Leyla spots the injury, will she be able to work out that Gabby has been the one stalking her?
