But now Emmerdale writer Sharon Marshall has revealed that bosses were desperate to find a way to keep Meena around – but couldn’t over her many crimes.

Speaking on This Morning, Phillip Schofield asked her: “You say: ‘Can she get away with it?’ and obviously that will be the question, but didn’t you have a little analysis at work?”

Sharon said: “Yeah, I was just telling you this. We do love the serial killers and go: ‘Is there a way to keep them in? Can people get away with it?'” 

“So we said: ‘Is there a way legally she could go through this, if she pleads a certain way?’

“The research team read out 25 counts of illegal activity that she’d done just on-screen that we knew about, probably more off-screen.

“She’d broken the law 25 times, so probably not.”

Meena will soon face justice during her trial in the coming weeks.

Actress Paige has teased the ending for the killer on the soap.

She said: “The ending’s incredible, better than I could ever have imagined, and I have already started crying.

“[Meena] is a psychopath and believes nobody will ever get the better of her. 

“Psychopaths are incapable of feeling fear like we can.”
