In March last year, the UK went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. This meant soaps including Emmerdale, Coronation Street and EastEnders had to stop production.

However Emmerdale was the first soap to resume filming, starting back up on May 20 with new safety guidelines.

But Laura discovered she was pregnant with her baby just four days before she was due to return to set.

Laura announced the exciting news in August last year to OK! Magazine.

However with pregnant women classed as ‘vulnerable’ to coronavirus, Laura has not been filming.
