Emmerdale favourite Faith Dingle is the subject of sex rumours spreading around the village next week.
As Faith struggles with the prospect that she is once again ill with cancer, she has been supported by her ex-boyfriend Eric Pollard and his new girlfriend Brenda Walker.
Next week, the trio head out for a shop for a special lunch but shopkeeper David Metcalfe comments on their dynamic and Mackenzie Boyd makes some veiled remarks on what their living arrangements are like.
Brenda continues to encourage Faith to speak with her family about the potential that her cancer had returned, but Faith does not want to worry them until she has this confirmed.
Speaking about the storyline, actress Sally Dexter who plays Faith said of her character hiding her health situation: “She doesn’t feel guilty, she feels she’s doing what’s necessary to safeguard them and to not have them worrying in a way which might not be necessary – until she knows these test results.
“She can’t know what’s she’s dealing with and she feels she can’t share it.”
*Emmerdale continues on weekdays at 7pm on ITV with previous episodes available on ITV Hub.
