In “Emmerdale,” Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) was arrested for suspicion of assault after he attacked Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) following a heated confrontation between the two.
It all started when Liam found out that Jacob slept with his teen daughter Leanna Cavanagh (Mimi Slinger) and rejected her after. After throwing up in front of her dad, the embarrassed teen admitted that she’d taken the morning after pill and told her what happened after they had sex.

Leanna said Jacob wasn’t interested in her and that he did it so he would feel better. Liam then asked if she didn’t want to have sex with him and if he forced her to do it. She and Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) insisted that wasn’t the case but Liam didn’t listen. He immediately went to confront Jacob and accused him of taking advantage of her daughter.
Unfortunately, Jacob showed no signs of remorse for what he did. He even made nasty comments about Leanna.
He added, “It’s just sex. People do it all the time, it doesn’t mean anything. That’s why I left afterward. She wanted it more than me, I wasn’t even that bothered.”
