Emmerdale theories: Nicola King to QUIT soap after grim beating storyline; plus Coronation Street & EastEnders spoilers

EMMERDALE'S Nicola King will QUIT the soap after she was subjected to a brutal beating storyline, a theory has claimed.

Nicola King (portrayed by Nicola Wheeler) has been more or less spared from the ups and downs of life in Emmerdale in recent weeks.

But in scenes due to air on the ITV soap next week, Laurel Thomas (played by Charlotte Bellamy) takes it upon herself to push the warring sisters back to one another as they all head out to a bar.

Nicola is mugged, left beaten, bloodied and unmoving after her attack – but a new theory by Express.co.uk suggests it could lead to her departure from the village.

As she heads to bed for the night, a headache could start to brew but she would think this is because of the stress she has endured.

Unfortunately, she might not wake up as the bleed gets worse during the night, resulting in her exit from the weeknight serial drama.

    SPOILERS and soap stars alike have confirmed that Gary Lucy is set for an emotional exit while his on-screen alter ego battles dementia.

    Many Hollyoaks viewers couldn’t hold back their tears as they discovered Luke Morgan’s final scenes online.

    Emmerdale fans demand bosses AXE ‘pathetic’ drug plot

    Disappointed by Leyla Cavanagh’s recent cocaine addiction, soap fans are asking Emmerdale bosses to scrap the storyline once again.

    Many of them took to Twitter to put it on blast, branding it “ridiculous” and asking bosses to drop it altogether.

    “It’s gone from the ridiculous storyline of Meena to the ridiculous storyline of Leyla being a druggy”, one viewer commented on Friday.

    A second viewer tweeted: “This Leyla drug SL is getting more farcical.”

    A third fan complained: “This Leyla drug storyline”, adding sleeping emojis along with a gif of Chandler Bing from Friends falling asleep.

    Another viewer jumped in: “Even by Emmerdale’s recent standards, these Leyla & David storylines are ludicrous.”

    “This Leyla storyline is pathetic”, a fifth penned, “There’s too many druggies and alcoholics in Emmerdale.”

    One final fan fumed: “This Leyla/Lola story is bloody pathetic.”
