Cruel Gabby Thomas has taken a nasty and very public revenge on Liv Flaherty in Emmerdale – after getting the wrong idea about her relationship with Jacob Gallagher. While Jacob did admit to Liv that he fancies her, Liv sees him as a friend and opened up to him about her struggles with her sexuality.
Emmerdale has kicked off a story focusing on asexuality as Liv continues to realise that she doesn’t find herself attracted to either males or females and the pressure to feel anything recently led her to plant a kiss on Gabby.
However, as they put this behind them, Gabby later watched from a distance as Jacob and Liv shared a friendly hug after talking about her situation. Jumping to the conclusion that they were seeing each other, Gabby plotted her revenge on Liv’s birthday.
As she offered to pay her to get a tattoo on the back of her neck, Gabby ensured that it said ‘SKANK’ and then filmed the footage as Liv proudly showed it off to her family and friends at her party.
Asked to explain, Gabby nastily hit out at Liv, saying that she is a boyfriend stealer and she deserves it. And despite Liv’s pleas, Gabby went a step further and revealed the fact that Liv had kissed her, leaving her humiliated.
As Bernice dragged Gabby home, a tearful Liv’s birthday was left in tatters by her so-called friend’s act of spite. But can Aaron help his sister come to terms with the feelings that are confusing her?
