Vanity, Emmerdale ITV

Emmerdale’s Emma Atkins opens up about Charity and Vanessa’s wedding

It's the wedding ITV fans are hoping to see happen...

Fans rejoiced when Charity Dingle and Vanessa Woodfield finally got together earlier this year – so much so, that the couple even got given their own moniker.

But will ‘Vanity’ ever make it official and give ITV viewers what they really want – a romantic wedding?

Sadly, Emma revealed in a recent interview that Vanity fans will have to wait quite a while before any wedding between the pair.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the TV Choice Awards, she told us not to hold our breath for a wedding ceremony between Charity and Vanessa anytime soon.

In fact, it might be a “few years away”…

She said: “We’ve not been told about a wedding, and I imagine they would certainly string things out before they do something like that – it will be a few years down the line, maybe.”

She added: “That’s if we’re still there, if they still want us?

“But if something’s working – and it seems to be – and the viewers are saying how much they love it…”

If and when Charity does get married, it certainly won’t be the first time.

The feisty pub landlady has been married several times before…

Charity married the first of her three husbands in 2001 when she tied the knot with Chris Tate, but it was hardly a fairytale relationship.

She went on to marry Jai Sharma and Declan Macey, and her most significant long-term relationship was with Cain.

Charity has four children – Debbie, 29,  Ryan, 28,  Noah, 14 and three-year-old Moses.

So, to be honest, she probably hasn’t got a whole lot of time to organise a wedding as well!

It’s been a dramatic year for Charity, with her abuser DI Bails returning to the village and a secret son Ryan Stocks turning up.

Emma continued: “I’ve loved the fact that the stories have been interwoven and have gone on for quite a while,” she shared. “It’s been really interesting to have something of substance. A lot of my storylines are [usually] very short and sweet. I put a wig on, I rob cars.

“I’ve loved the story with Vanessa. I’ve loved doing something with a delicate subject matter, and I’ve put my heart and soul into it, and I feel like it’s been one of my best years.”

Wedding fans will have to hold out for the nuptials of Robert Sudden and Aaron Dingle which is just around the corner…
