Manpreet Sharma (played by Rebecca Sarker) was horrified to see Meena (Paige Sandhu) in Emmerdale after years of feuding with her sister. The feisty new arrival claimed she wanted to make amends with her sister but the doctor was furious and refused to listen. However, could Meena be hiding the true reason behind her sudden appearance in the village?
Speaking to press including Express.co.uk, actress Paige revealed the motives behind Meena’s arrival.
“So, it's essentially a reconciliation with Manpreet,” she explained.
“I always feel like with Meena there's always some selfish reason behind pretty much everything that she does.
“But the reason that she says is, ‘I want to reconcile with my sister. I miss you. Forgive me for what I've whatever I've done.’”

“With Meena, there's pretty much always a selfish desire underneath,” Paige added.
“What can seem like a shiny, good veneer there's something else going on, which is a really interesting complex thing about her.”
Could Meena have found herself in trouble with the law and is desperate for Manpreet’s help?
Or perhaps she’s secretly hoping to get close to another Emmerdale resident?
