Sophie said of her exit (via Digital Spy): “I always knew I was only coming back for a six-month storyline and I knew it was going to be drug-related and heartbreaking.

“I was prepared for this and I knew what I was signing up for when I spoke to the producer about returning. The ‘Emmerdale’ script and story team had already planned Holly’s return and what would happen to her, so they really wanted me on board to help tell this story.”

‘Emmerdale’ airs these new scenes on Monday 5 October at 7pm on ITV.
