Emmerdale spoilers to follow.
Emmerdale aired an emotional episode for Leyla and Liam Cavanagh as Liam officially asked his soon-to-be ex-wife for a divorce.
Leyla and Liam’s split was confirmed earlier in the week after a year of traumatic events. They tried to make things right again, but their meeting didn’t work out and they both decided to break up for good.
Though the decision was amicable, Sunday’s episode proved emotional for Leyla as Liam officially filed for a divorce. This proved to be too much for Leyla, who was upset at how quickly the breakup was progressing and alarmed that Liam wanted such a clean breakup so quickly.

Liam and Leyla were talking to Bernice, who Liam had previously kissed. Liam told Bernice about their split, saying, “It was a mutual decision.” Leyla looked clearly upset — even uncomfortable — at the line, but she agreed, “Some things are just not meant to be.”
The two shared a joke and a smile when Bernice left, but there was clearly tension between them.
“It’s nice to see you smile again. Just try to take a break every once in a while, huh?” said Liam. Leyla then left.

Later in the episode, Leyla moves out of Liam’s house and tells him she’s finished packing her things. Liam joked about her “conscious decoupling”. Leyla turned to leave before Liam said: “Actually, I’m glad we had a chance to chat a bit about each other, I mean.”
“We both had so much heartbreak in our lives. We deserve some happiness,” Liam said. “And so I think it might be time for us to make a fresh start.”
Leyla smiled for a moment and seemed to think Liam would ask her to give their relationship another chance. However, Liam then dealt the killing blow, suggesting to Leyla that the reboot should file for divorce.

“I just think we need a clean break. Otherwise we’ll never get anywhere,” Liam said. However, Leyla was upset and stormed out before Liam asked her if she was on board. Leyla said she was “100%” on board.
Liam tries to talk about seeing a lawyer, but Leyla abruptly leaves. Leyla left the house with one last look and that was the end of Leyla and Liam’s painful story this week.
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7.30pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
