Emmerdale: Diane will be killed by Meena, fans fear

Elizabeth has played Diane for 22 years

Emmerdale fans fear that Diane Sugden will be killed off by Meena Jutla after it was announced actress Elizabeth Estensen would be retiring from the show.

Last week it was announced Elizabeth, who has played Diane Sugden for 22 years, would be retiring from the soap.

However since the announcement fans have worried that perhaps Diane could be Meena’s next victim.

A few months ago Meena confided in Diane that her best friend Nadine took her own life.

Meena begged Diane to keep what she told her to herself.

However later Leanna Cavanagh found the news clipping from Nadine’s death and questioned Meena about it.

Meena let slip to Leanna that she killed Nadine.

Although Leanna agreed to keep Meena’s secret, the nurse didn’t want to risk the truth coming out and pushed Leanna off the humpback bridge.
