Gemma Atkinson confirms Emmerdale exit
Gemma Atkinson confirms Emmerdale exit after her leaving storyline was revealed.
It seems that things have become too much for her character, Carly Hope.
After moving in with Marlon recently, she struggled to cope with the relationship change.
“It could well be the last we see of Carly. She’s doing a runner because she’s desperate – and everyone knows that she’s run away from relationships in the past. But this is Emmerdale and there are twists and turns, so watch this space,” she said to the Daily Star.
Things take a big turn when April starts choking on a sweet in an upcoming episode of the show.
Carly does nothing to help her and the leave the village as she struggles with her conscience.
The incident takes her back to her baby son Billy’s death- who tragically died of a cot death.
“Carly blames herself for Billy’s cot death and she hasn’t dealt with that guilt. She’s convinced that Billy died because she did something wrong and that she’s not cut out to be a mother.
“So the fact that she hasn’t helped April has subconsciously brought all these memories back to the surface. She has a lot of fear – I think she needs a good therapy session. She’s dealing with so much grief, but it’s all internalised,” she added.
