Emmerdale’s Charity returns… with a shocking new career
Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) will return to Emmerdale tonight with a shock new career, it has been revealed.
Tonight’s episode will see Charity’s dramatic return to the village after being sentenced to prison due for perverting the course of justice in early 2015. Arriving in a stolen Ferrari, Charity will immediately start causing problems for ex Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) and his wife Moira (Natalie J. Robb).
The biggest surprise is yet to come, however, as Charity shortly announces that she is the new joint owner of the Woolpack. Will her new venture provide some much-needed stability for the mum of three?
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.”
