Emmerdale: Gabby’s loneliness
A couple of weeks ago, Gabby struggled to get in contact with her mum.
Then when she hung out with her friends Jacob and Leanna, who recently became a couple, she realised Leanna was starting to see her as a third wheel.
Currently Gabby is living with Bernice’s mum, Diane.
Last year, Bernice left the village when she discovered her ex Charlie, who her daughter Dee Dee lives in Australia lives with, had been in a car crash.
He was left in a critical condition in hospital. Realising she needed to step up and make sure both Charlie and Dee Dee were looked after, she went to Australia with her daughter.
Although she was due to marry Leanna’s dad, Liam Cavanagh, their relationship ended not long after she left.
Gabby’s father Ashley died in 2017 after being diagnosed with pneumonia, while also having dementia.
Gabby was raised by her stepmother Laurel for a majority of her childhood.
However over recent months, Laurel has been having troubles with her son Arthur, who bullied Archie Breckle.
Will anyone be able to see Gabby is lonely and struggling without her mum around?
Emmerdale airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm on ITV.
