Emmerdale: Amy Walsh reveals Tracy fears for baby Frankie
Actress Amy Walsh hasn’t revealed what the lump turns out to be, however Tracy’s mind jumps to the worst case scenario.
Speaking to Inside Soap, she said: “Anyone would jump to the worst-case scenario, and that’s how I played it. Tracy feels the lump and thinks, ‘My baby has cancer’, so it spirals quite quickly.
“She also thinks that she’s being fobbed off by the doctor.
“It’s an important story to tell, because we want viewers to know that over-worrying as a new mum is not a bad thing, and getting a second opinion from a doctor is not a bad thing.
“Tracy just wants to do the best for her baby, so that’s what she does.”
Tracy and Nate
Earlier this year, Tracy and Nate welcomed their first child together, who they named Frankie.
Later Nate’s grandmother Faith offered to move in with them in order to help Tracy with their daughter whilst Nate worked.
But when Tracy and Faith began clashing, Tracy and Nate asked her to move out.
Last week, Leyla offered Tracy and Nate a family photoshoot voucher. But Tracy was disappointed when Nate said he couldn’t attend as he was too busy with work.
In this week’s scenes, Nate feels guilty when Tracy gives David a voucher for the shoot explaining she doesn’t want to go on her own.
But when he goes to get the voucher back, David accidentally runs over his foot.
With Nate’s injury stopping him from helping out with Frankie has much, Tracy feels increasingly under strain.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV. There’s an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
