Who is Amelia’s dad?

Amelia grew up believing her dad was Dan Spencer.

However, it was later revealed his brother, Daz, could also have been her father.

A DNA test proved Daz was in fact her biological dad.

Amelia was horribly upset by the revelation and went missing.

Daz was suspected of having something to do with her disappearance, but it turned out she had been manipulated by a woman called Beth.

Beth was holding Amelia hostage after Daz accidentally killed her dad when he was in the army.

Amelia eventually returned home.

However when Daz departed Emmerdale she decided to stay with Dan and Kerry.

She still views Dan as her real dad and when he ended up in a wheelchair after suffering an allergic reaction it was Amelia who stepped up and took care of him.
