We don’t think a soap character/star has ever been missed quite so much as Andy Sugden/Kelvin Fletcher.
And the Emmerdale star had fans begging him to return to the Dales this week as he posted a message from Andy!
Emmerdale’s twitter account had shared a picture of Andy’s sister Victoria, and asked who she could be talking to.
Joker Kelvin suggested it was his character Andy.
He wrote: “I’m on the beach, Vic. Tan is coming on a treat. I’ve gone from a 7/10 to a 9/10.
“Managed to get some farm work here too, top’s off every day.”
Of course, this was all the encouragement his fans needed to beg him to return to the show.
Since Kelvin quit Emmerdale, we’ve been getting our fix of him by staking his Instagram.
And he delivered the goods recently, sharing the cutest picture of him and his sweet daughter.
The former Emmerdale actor explained: “Well, Mummy was away so Daddy had this little monkey for two solid days… well, it was a walk in the park!”
The adorable double act had seemingly been hanging out in their local park – and it looked as though Kelvin had done a very good job of dressing his daughter.
She was head-to-toe in pink!
Wife Liz – Elizabeth Marsden – gave birth to Marnie Molly Fletcher – that name!! – in September of last year.
And Daddy just loves to show her off. Who could blame him – just look at those cheeks on her…

Kelvin and longterm love Liz tied the knot in 2015. They had known each other as children, before becoming a couple around 12 years ago.
“I knew I wanted to marry Liz the day I met her,” Kelvin told HELLO!.
“Deep down I knew she was the one.”
They tied the knot at the exclusive One Mayfair venue in London.
“We’re here in a big posh venue but I’m just a working class boy,” he said. “And it’s the simple things that matter to me – like genuine love and support.”

Their ceremony was held on 28 November, a year to the day that he proposed.
“The image of Liz coming towards me up the aisle will stay with me forever,” he said.
“She took my breath away. She looked so beautiful.”
Aww… we do miss Kelvin on Emmerdale. Time to come back soon, please!
