Gemma Atkinson starred as Carly for two years before she quit to dazzle audiences with her foxtrots and paso-dobles on Strictly Come Dancing.

She left the ITV soap in June 2017, when Carly was reunited with her ex-boyfriend and father of her son, Matt.

Poor Marlon. He needs Carly to come back to look after him and April.

In heart-breaking scenes, Bob's daughter left to begin a new life with Irish Matt after her boyfriend Marlon persuaded her to walk away from their relationship.

But actress Gemma, who recently had her first child with boyfriend Gorka Márquez, has always said she would return...

And, as viewers have watched Marlon in bits, they think now is the time!

One tweeted: "Carly Hope was Marlon's one true love in Emmerdale. She was one amazing, developed character and it broke my heart when she left.

"The soap feels quiet without her. She was a great stepmother to April and filmed some heart-felt scenes. Come back Carly!"

Another said: "Jesus Christ, can Marlon have some good luck for a change? Time for Carly Hope to come and mend his broken heart?"

A third added: "Feel like April is 100 per cent a more well adjusted person than Marlon is. She'll be fine. But also definitely bring back Carly."

"Poor Marlon," said another. "He needs Carly to come back to look after him and April."

"Is Gemma Atkinson returning as Carly soon?" begged another. "I thought Marlon and Carly were the most natural and believable couple."

Gemma appeared on James Martin's Saturday Morning show in March, where she told the host she'd love to return to the ITV soap.

She said: "I just left the village in a cab, as you do.

"Before I joined everyone said it's like a real family, and it is.

"All my friends are still there. I would go back at some point, yes."
