EMMERDALE fans fear for Priya Kotecha as her eating disorder flares up again following her burns nightmare.

The character – played by Fiona Wade – was left with serious burns and scarring on her back following the maze fire.

Priya has been struggling in the aftermath of the blaze and in recent episodes, she has been reluctant to eat.

The character first battled an eating disorder in 2014 when she was pregnant with daughter Amba, and the storyline has been revisited again in 2016 and 2019 when Priya faced stressful situations.

Now, as her insecurities and anxieties resurface, she once again loses her appetite, something that doesn't go unnoticed by her brother Jai.

After Amba leaves her mum her special cup full of milkshake, Jai called in to check on his sister.

But she told him firmly: "Jai, I don't need babysitting. My food issues, my problem and I'm dealing with it."

Jai replied: "You can't blame me for worrying."

But she told him: "That's why I didn't want you to know, it's just too much pressure people watching me all the time."

Her brother told her how well she was doing, and she said: "I know, you can go now" before taking a sip of the drink through the straw.

She then told him: "I promise I'll let you know if I'm not coping OK?" before taking another gulp to prove her point.

But as soon as Jai had gone, Priya went over to the sink and turned on the radio to drown out the sound of her throwing up what she had just swallowed.
