She said: "At the beginning of the year, I was thinking about my job at Emmerdale and how much I love it and how I'd hate for it to become anything less than a job I adore.

She continued: "So I'm leaving now, but maybe one day I'll come back to it. Never say never. After all Cain needs his mum.

"Whenever people see me out in the street, they tell me that I need to keep him in order."
