Emmerdale villain Meena star Paige Sandhu ‘nervous’ of fans who wait at studio

Emmerdale star Paige Sandhu has had a rollercoaster of a year after her character took an unexpected turn on the ITV soap.

Over the past 12 months, the actress found herself at the heart of one of the most thrilling storylines in 2021 through her role of murderer Meena Jutla.

While the 24-year-old enjoys a highly-deserved break over the festive period, loyal viewers have been gripped to the ITV soap which has exploded since the Christmas Day special.

But despite her new-found fame on the popular long-standing show, the star has never experienced adoring fans waiting to meet her because she started the role in the Dales during the peak of the pandemic.

As the UK guidelines around Covid-19 start to relax, the raven-haired beauty has confessed she has found the attention a little hard to cope with.

In an interview with Notebook the soap star admitted that she sometimes gets “nervous” meeting her loving fans outside the studio.

She confessed: “I must admit, when I see fans waiting outside the studio, I do get a bit nervous.

“It's a completely new experience because I've been working through Covid and not really had to deal with that kind of thing. However, I’d rather embrace it than shy away.

“We’re constantly messaging and sending each other voice notes on WhatsApp. If I ever feel anxious or need to vent about something – I go to Rebecca for support."

One of the best ways the starlet gets over her feelings of anxiety is through a clean diet and steady exercise such as Pilates and Yoga.

“I felt a bit anxious recently over nothing I could put my finger on, so I did some yoga and meditation and it made me feel like a different person," she said.

It comes as Manpreet’s life hangs in the balance after the sisters got caught in the explosion of the Woolpack pub just moments after she discovered her sister Meena is a cold-blooded killer.

Viewers fumed after the Christmas Day special ended with Manpreet now in a coma while her evil sister managed to escape with a few minor cuts and bruises.

And the heartache didn’t stop there as Meena’s lies got even more sinister as she told her now ex-boyfriend Billy that she miscarried their fictional child after the explosion.
