Emmerdale fans spotted that Meena Jutla “slipped up” on Wednesday’s episode as she was interrogated by the police over Andrea Tate’s death.
Last week, Meena (Paige Sandhu) murdered Andrea (Anna Nightingale) and stole her bracelet as a sick “keepsake”, with the character even trying to kill Priya Sharma in hospital on Monday in case she witnessed the crime.
During Tuesday’s episode, Wendy Posner told a stunned Meena that the police were looking into Andrea’s death, saying: “I reckon they think Andrea was murdered.”
On Wednesday’s episode, the police asked to speak to the evil nurse due to her being in the burning maze at the same time as Andrea as they were hoping to “clarify a few things”.

However, fans spotted that Meena made a big “slip up” during the chat as she started talking about a killer even though the police didn’t mention it was a murder investigation and haven’t released those details to the character.
During the chat, Meena lied and denied seeing Andrea in the maze, saying: “With all the smoke, she could have walked right past me, so could the killer… they could have attacked me. They are still out there, what if they try to hunt me down.”
The police detective asked the evil nurse to then explain her worries, to which she continued: “If they think I saw them, I don’t know, you should be out there looking instead of questioning me.”
With the police detective commenting that things weren’t “adding up”.
Soap watchers were quick to point out that Meena had “slipped up” due to mentioning a killer when the police haven’t yet told her or confirmed that it is a murder investigation.
With an eagle-eyed fan commenting: “Did the police tell Meena Andrea was murdered – there’s a slip up #emmerdale Wendy did but that’s hearsay.”
While a different account put: “This detective is on to Meena #emmerdale…”
During the interrogation, it wasn’t long until Meena framed Kim Tate for Andrea’s death, saying that she “hated” the character and that they had an explosive row the day before she died.
The episode then ended with Kim being arrested for suspicion of murder as she was taken to the police station, to which the character warned: “You are making a big mistake!”
However, soap watchers have already predicted Meena’s downfall after spotting a number of clues which could expose the village murderer.
Emmerdale continues on weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
