Emmerdale: Samantha Giles has very good news about Bernice’s wig

Samantha explained the reason for her wearing a wig

Emmerdale actress Samantha Giles has revealed that Bernice’s wig has been axed.

Bernice recently returned to the soap and immediately viewers noticed something different about the character – she’s wearing a wig.

Just after her return, Samantha explained the reasoning for wearing a wig was due to Covid restrictions she has to do her own hair.

Speaking on This Morning she said: ” “The thing is, my own hair is very, very thick and wiry and it’s not like Bernice’s at all, who’s a hairdresser and has to look very coiffed and I can’t do anything with my hair.

“I can’t make it look like that.”

However Samantha has revealed that she no longer has to wear the wig.

Speaking on The God Cast podcast she said: “The wig has had more publicity than anything at the moment.

“I had the latest message from upstairs, as we call them, to say ‘just do whatever it takes, just get the wig off her’, so I’m allowed to have my hair blow dried twice a week.”

Do whatever it takes, just get the wig off her.

“It will be one of two people that does it, so it’s still very COVID safe.”
