Tonight Emmerdale viewers will see Charity Dingle’s (Emma Atkins) dramatic return to the village after a spell in prison. We can exclusively reveal, much to the villagers surprise, she will announce herself as the new joint owner of the Woolpack.
Arriving in a stolen Ferrari, it’s only a matter of hours before Charity has caused chaos for ex Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) and his wife Moira (Natalie J. Robb). Will being landlady provide her with the stability the mum of three needs or will her newfound status go straight to her head?
Emma Atkins said: "It is just brilliant to see her behind the bar. Something very different. She will be under the watchful eye of Chas (Lucy Pargeter), but both characters can give as good as they get so it will be a colourful dynamic.”
“My pint pulling can literally floor my workmates, by being brilliant one minute and horrendous the next. It's a continuity extravaganza as I'm learning the ropes from the props guys and Lucy (Pargeter) of course. It's a skill in itself having to say the lines, work the props and try and give a fluid performance without having an expression of dread wondering if the pint will have a good head of 'froth' on it!”
“The bar is a bit like a stage for Charity where she can show off and deliver her explosive one liners to the locals. Her behaviour will no doubt fluctuate from good to bad to ugly, with a decent dose of naughtiness thrown in.”
