Priya Sharma may be pregnant with her best friend Leyla Harding's boyfriend Pete Barton's baby following their affair
Emmerdale's Priya Sharma fears she could be pregnant with Pete Barton's baby.
The businesswoman - played by Fiona Wade - decided to call time on her steamy affair with her best friend Leyla Harding's man after she asked him to marry her earlier this week, but things are set to take a turn for the worse when she starts experiencing pregnancy symptoms and instantly convinces herself that she's expecting his child.
A source told Inside Soap magazine: "Priya turning up to the wedding pregnant with the groom's love child would not be a good look! When she realises she has pregnancy symptoms, Priya is genuinely horrified. She knows a positive test is going to leave her in a tough position because she'll want to keep the baby - but that would mean wrecking Leyla's life. Pete isn't used to being the bad guy - he usually leaves that to his brother Ross. A baby would change everything for him and Leyla.
"He saw what happened when his Auntie Moira hid the fact that Adam was her brother-in-law James' child rather than her hubby John's.
"It almost tore the Bartons apart. How could he live with himself if he was playing happy families with Leyla while Priya was living up the road with his child?"
However, Priya finds herself in a difficult position when she decides to take her urine test in the Woolpack toilets and Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) walks in and demands answers, especially as her best friend had never mentioned a potential pregnancy before.
Meanwhile, Fiona recently admitted her alter ego's romps with Pete will go on for a "while" and, although she will confess to her husband Rakesh Kotecha (Pasha Bocarie) that she's been doing the dirty on him, she vows to keep his identity a secret.
