Gaynor, 46, said: “I encouraged a few actors here to take up Buddhism, and we sometimes chant at work – but I won’t tell you who, as it’s their business.”

The actress began partaking in the religion more than a decade ago as it helped her deal with post natal depression.

“I chant prayers every morning and evening,” she added to the Mirror.

“I sometimes chant in my dressing room or on set if things are getting to me.”

The new direction comes as Emmerdale is facing upheaval, with boss Iain MacLeod leaving in the summer to take over at Coronation Street.

Departing Corrie boss Kate Oates is leaving after three years to move to other dramas at ITV.
