Victoria found herself trapped in David's bedroom but was spotted by Meena (ITV)

She’s already tried to end Victoria’s (Isabel Hodgins) life once, but will Meena bide her time and make another attempt? After all, she’s definitely not over the other woman’s betrayal with ex-beau David Metcalfe.

Meena doesn’t let go of her grudges, so Victoria could certainly be at risk this winter...
