Emmerdale has announced that Faith Dingle will be making a dramatic return to the village.

In scenes coming up, Moira will bump into her mother-in-law. Faith is desperate to get away from Moira’s questions, as she’s dressed as an undertaker and is in the process of stealing a hearse.

After their chance meeting, Faith later turns up in the village and asks Moira if Cain can ever forgive her.

Speaking about returning to the ITV soap, Sally said: “It’s wonderful to be back in Emmerdale again. From the first day I felt like I was getting a big warm family hug from everyone, it’s a really special show.”

Emmerdale producer Sophie Roper added: “I’m delighted to see the return of much-loved character Faith Dingle to the village. A character bursting with fun. Faith’s certainly set to ruffle a few feathers and will test the Dingle’s loyalties like never before.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Sally back to Emmerdale, a character exuding vibrant charm.”

She is the mother of Cain and Chas Dingle. Originally it was thought Shadrach Dingle was Cain’s father, however Faith had a fling with his brother Zak.

Why did Faith leave Emmerdale?

In 2019, Nate had been having an affair with Cain’s wife Moira. In a dramatic scene, Nate revealed he was Cain’s son and had the affair as revenge for him abandoning him.

However Cain had no idea Nate existed.

Cain had a relationship with Nate’s mum Cara, who he met in a bar. However Shadrach had a racist attitude and warned her to keep away from Cain.
