“Leanna and Billy going to get together new storyline #Emmerdale,” a third avid fan of the show commented, whilst a fourth posted: “Leanna having a crush on Billy? #Emmerdale.”
Jacob is not one to back down though, so could he and the fitness trainer go head-to-head to fight for Leanna’s affections?
The actor who plays Jacob, Joe-Warren, has been praised by his co-stars following his break away from the soap, with Roxy saying: “We’re really really looking forward to having him back, he’s got such an amazing energy on set – he’s so talented.”
Jonny added: “He’s a wonderful human being and he’s got such a strong work ethic, he’s a really really sound human.”
Emmerdale continues Monday at 7pm on ITV.
