Debbie Dingle is leaving Emmerdale for a while as actress Charley Webb goes on maternity leave.

Deb's been in two minds whether to go, but she is surprised next week by daughter Sarah's pragmatism.

Deb breaks the news to her dad, Cain, that she has decided to leave, and he doesn't take things well at all.

Nervous about how mum, Charity, will react, can Debbie bring herself to tell her mother she's going?

One person who is pretty pleased about the move is Charity's fiancée, Vanessa Woodfield, who is thrilled not that Debbie's leaving, but that she and Charity can move into her house once she has gone.

But while she plans for more space and a love nest of their very own, she has no idea there's a catch...

New mum Lacey, who plays Stacey Fowler in the soap, told the publication: "Dusty’s our little miracle – we call her Special Kay!"

Speaking about the little girl's name, Lacey added: "It wasn’t on our original list but we did an internet search for ‘pretty girls’ names’ and we both said it at the same time!

"Her middle name is Violet, which I also love. We’ve had mixed reactions, people either think it’s really cool or they don’t really know what to say!"

Matt said he was "over the moon" that they welcomed a daughter.

Lacey announced her pregnancy in February.

Confirming the news to OK! Magazine - where she said at the time that she was due in mid-July - Lacey said the couple have "dreamed of having a family for so long".

Lacey told the publication: "I can’t wait to nurture our baby – we’ve dreamed of having a family for so long. When you’ve lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat – we’ve had about 12 scans."

The former Our Girl star tragically suffered two miscarriages before her current pregnancy, and told OK! she felt as though her "whole world had fallen to pieces” when she lost her babies.

She said: "I blamed myself thinking that I’d done something wrong. I’d think, 'Why me? What did I do?' But, of course, I hadn't done anything wrong – it's all down to chromosomes and luck, really. Speaking to other people about it helped me. Women shouldn’t feel ashamed to talk about it as it happens to so many women."
