Emmerdale fans watched a dramatic proposal earlier this evening as Dr Liam Cavanagh (played by Jonny McPherson) got down on one knee and popped the question to Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi). Viewers quickly took to social media to discuss the scenes they’d seen on the popular ITV soap and many were convinced the couple would never make it down the aisle as Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) is returning soon.
Liam finally proposed to Leyla in tonight's episode when he declared his feelings for her: “I love you. You’re my everything you’re my soulmate, the woman I cannot be without.
“Will you do me the honour of becoming my wife? Marry me?”
Leyla nodded trying to contain her excitement and quickly answered: “Yes!”
Viewers quickly took to Twitter to share their reaction to the proposal and many predicted Leyla’s happy ending could be ruined by Bernice.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
