Emmerdale actor teases Ben will be tested on ITV soap during run in with Meena

Emmerdale's resident serial killer Meena Jutla could be in trouble this evening as Ben Tucker uncovers the incriminating body cam footage of her heartless murder attempt.

During Super Soap Week, Meena, played by Paige Sandhu, tried to drown Victoria Sugden, played by Isabel Hodgins after the disastrous bridge collapse.

In gripping scenes Meena was stopped by Andrea Tate, played by Anna Nightingale – who ended up bearing the brunt of Meena's wrath when she was left for dead in the burning maize maze.

However, actor Simon Lennon explained that it won't be easy for his character Ben to expose Meena's murderous ways. During his appearance on Lorraine, he said Ben would be "tested" during the impending altercation.

"Things have become challenging for Ben," explained Simon during his interview on the popular morning show.

He continued: "He's been suspended at work since Aaron kicked off at his boss, so it's hard for him to go back to the life he was living.

"He's looking further afield and I guess now is the time when he'll realise if he does need to leave Emmerdale or can stay and carry on."

Ben has become a much loved character on the show since he entered the show last autumn as an employee of HOP.

Lorraine went on to say: "I hope he does stay. I know you're enjoying every single second of it. I hope things work out for him because he's a lovely lad!"

Simon responded: "He's a genuinely good guy isn't he. But that will be tested when he comes into contact with Meena who's not a good person."

"Well, that's putting it mildly," added Lorraine.

The drama all starts to unfold as Ben begins to dwell on the injustice he feels over being blamed for the bridge collapse. Determined to clear his name, he heads to HOP to find evidence that'll help his case.

But it's not long before he stumbles across the sinister footage of Meena's vile murder attempt.

Ben quickly calls Billy, begging him to come to the HOP and take a look at what he's found. Little does he now that Meena is on a date with Billy and has heard every word.

She rushes away to try and silence Ben and he's unnerved when she turns up at the office smiling. The pair endure a stand off before Meena lunges in to grab the tape.

Emmerdale continues on weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
