Speaking to Inside Soap, she said: “I think it’s good that Bernice is single for a while, but I would like them to bring her ex-husband Charlie in.

“We could do with a few more men in Emmerdale! I think Charlie sounds like a male version of Bernice, so that would be really interesting.

“Remember, she was married to him for a really long time off-screen.”

Next week Bernice will discover her mum is planning to flee with pregnant granddaughter Gabby to save her from Kim Tate.
