Emmerdale viewers have spotted evidence that Maya Stepney is dead – and her body is in a suitcase.
The paedophile teacher has not been seen since the fateful Big Night Out where her affair with pupil Jacob Gallagher was exposed.
The girls had a physical altercation with Maya in the woods and have repeatedly said she will not be coming back as they try to hide their involvement in her exit.
In tonight's episode, Tracy Metcalfe and Leyla Harding were seen lugging a heavy bag down the stairs.
They were supposedly carrying some of Maya's clothes down, but sceptical viewers have a dark theory.
Some are convinced that Maya's dead body is rotting inside the suitcase and the girls were trying to dispose of the eveidence.
When Tracy suggested they'd put too much inside, Leyla said: "Well Maya doesn’t know how long she’s going to be at her mum’s, right. So she’s packed for every eventuality."
They struggled to lug the suitcase into the living room as the wheels had broken off.
Tracy was horrified at Leyla's suggestion to burn the suitcase, but the wedding planner suggested hiding it in the shed then driving somewhere when it's dark.
Leyla claimed they could not afford to "overlook a single detail", perhaps hinting at her guilt.
The pair were nearly caught out when Frank arrived with Eliza and questioned what they were doing.
When he offered to lend a hand, as the bag looked heavy, Leyla mumbled: "No it's fine. I'm not. I mean I am. it's fine."
Frank asked if she was "going somewhere", then Tracy lied and claimed they were packing away their winter wardrobes.
Later on, the girls admitted it was "too close for comfort", so what are they hiding?
Emmerdale viewers took to Twitter to question what was in the suitcase.
One viewer asked: "Who else thinks Maya’s in the suitcase"
Another added :"What if the body is in that suitcase? (It won't be, but WHAT IF?!)"
A third said: "Leyla and Tracy struggling to take that suitcase down the stairs, they've put Maya's body in there haven't they?"
*Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7pm
