Maya (played by Louisa Clein) has been extremely inappropriate towards Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) on the ITV soap.
Emmerdale viewers have seen the school teacher kiss and get intimate with the student in scenes that left them feeling very uncomfortable.
However, recently she has been losing her grip over the schoolboy she’s been abusing.
Last night’s episode saw her resort to desperate measures to get back to how they were before.
Maya noticed how Jacob was trying to repair his relationship with Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) after the pair had a falling out over Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham).
Trying to use the situation to her advantage, she told Gabby that she had taken their rekindled friendship “very well”.
Maya was trying to split up Gabby and Olivia - and viewers were furious.
“Maya is beyond EVIL ain't she? #Emmerdale,” one tweeted.
A second added: “Maya is pathetic driving a wedge between Gabby & Olivia now just because she wants Jacob isolated & all to herself. #Emmerdale.”
