Rishi Sharma devastated by cruel rejection in Emmerdale | The Sun

LIFE in the Dales hasn't been the kindest to Rishi Sharma but he's about to experience another heartbreak.

The Emmerdale resident is crestfallen when he realises he's being held at arm's length by his own daughter.

After more than a decade in the eponymous village, actress Fiona Wade is ready to move on to new projects.

Her on-screen alter ego, Priya Sharma, will be leaving her life behind.

But when the wedding planner's father Rishi Sharma (portrayed by Bhasker Patel) stays behind in the Yorkshire Dales, he comes to a sad realisation.

Rishi is disappointed when it's clear to him Priya never had any intention of taking him with her away from the village.

As mentioned above, Priya is set for an emotional exit but it won't happen without any explosive drama.

It all begins when the lingering trauma from her ordeal in a maze fire comes back to haunt her as a veil catches alight from candles during a Take A Vow event.

She later gets help from her brother Jai (Chris Bisson) and village GP Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker).

Meanwhile, as Priya faces her trauma, Leyla Cavanagh (Roxy Shahidi) is rattled when a client, Justin, offers her a job with his team in London.

As Leyla tries to come to a decision about the job in London, Priya later bumps into Justin outside the Hop.

She owns up to previous events and explains her past trauma.

Although she defends herself by claiming she had no idea Leyla was offered the job in the first place, Priya is accused of sabotage by her boss.

And a spiralling David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) will be making matters worse for Priya.
