Liam and Leyla have had their fair share or turmoil throughout recent months.
One month after their wedding, the village GP lost his daughter Leanna.
The eighteen-year-old was pushed off a bridge by serial killer Meena Jutla on her birthday.
Leanna became a bother for Meena when she’d found out the sinister nurse had murdered her former best friend Nadine Butler.
Following Leanna’s tragic passing, Liam took his grief out on his own wife but tensions escalated when Leyla was addicted to cocaine.
For several weeks, she kept her addiction a secret but it eventually came to light after an overdose.
Liam found it hard to cope with her recovery, especially after finding Leyla had been keeping secrets from him.
To top it all off, Liam cheated on Leyla with his former flame Bernice Blackstock, who he gave up on to tie the knot with the wedding planner.
