Emmerdale star Fiona Wade has revealed that Priya’s eating disorder could be endangering her baby.
Priya should be eating a healthy diet but is hardly eating a thing and doing a huge amount of exercise.
Jai and Rishi have confronted her about the anorexia she dealt with as a teenager.
When she is taken to hospital with stomach pains her family are worried.
Wade told What’s on TV: “She has had issues with this in the past and her demons are coming back to torment her.
“But she doesn’t want help – she wants to get through this herself.”
The actress admitted that Priya’s anorexia is her default setting when stressed, as her eating is something she can control.
Discussing how Priya is coping with her pregnancy, Wade said: “She is really overwhelmed.
“She’s not in a very good place and is suffering from low self-esteem.
“She is worried about the future and generally feeling mixed up. She is trying to appear excited, but deep down she is really struggling.”
Priya thinks is hiding her eating issues but her brother Jai and Leyla have both noticed.
Fiona said: “The Sharmas have this get-together with Brenda and Bob to show them the pictures of Molly in Canada.
“To take the spotlight off her not eating, Priya cooks the food. She prepares an enormous amount, but Leyla is watching her and can see she is not eating anything.”
However, when Leyla brings up the subject, Fiona admitted: “It doesn’t go down well.
“Priya feels suffocated knowing that somebody is on to her. She is very defensive and they fall out over it.”
Priya then gets rushed to hospital, Fiona said: “Rishi finds her doubled up in pain and insists on getting her to hospital. It really scares her, but doctors say that everything is fine. That makes her think that she has things under control.”
