Emmerdale actress Paige Sandhu has certainly made an impact in the village as psychopathic serial killer Meena Jutla. Since joining the ITV soap, she's been responsible for the death of three characters and it looks like she's planning to add more to the tally.
Fans have been gripped by the storyline with many heavily invested in how and when Meena's downfall will come about, but what do Paige's nearest and dearest thing of her coldhearted performance?
In an exclusive interview with OK! Paige revealed that her family are "constantly shocked" by her performance and admitted her parents were "freaked out" by how violent Meena is.
Recalling their reaction to Ben Tucker's (Simon Lennon) murder, Paige said: "They’re constantly shocked. When Ben's murder came out and my mum and dad watched it and they were like, 'Paige, that was really violent.'"
She continued: "They got a little bit freaked out."
Despite their initial reactions to the episode, Paige revealed that she believes both her parents are "proud" of her.

"They're happy that I'm doing something that fulfils me and I love to do," she told us.
Meena's murder spree is still well and truly under way and viewers have watched the serial killer go to even further lengths to conceal the truth.
Manically trying to keep her killer secrets hidden, she's taken sister Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) hostage and has been slowly drugging her with Diazepam in order to keep her silent.
In the latest episodes, viewers saw Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson) fall into her killer clutches, as he discovered Manpreet tied up at the remote barn.
A teaser clip gives a taste of what's to come next week, but as Meena's actions become more outlandish, we can't help but feel like her downfall is imminent.
Before Christmas, Paige hinted that fans would see Meena get her comeuppance "very soon" as her behaviour begins to raise suspicions in the village.
