Emmerdale star Samantha Giles helped This Morning favourite Sharon Marshall get pregnant.
Samantha, who plays Bernice Blackstock in the soap, is a self-proclaimed witch and has previously revealed she practices Wicca – a religion based on ancient witchcraft traditions.
Samantha even said she met hubby Sean Pritchard by practicing witchcraft.
Emmerdale: How did Samantha Giles help Sharon Marshall fall pregnant?
Sharon, 46, appeared on This Morning in 2018 to tell the story.
She started by clarifying: “I just want to point out I was doing other things to get pregnant. I don’t think we need Dr Chris back to explain that! I didn’t just go in a cauldron, by the way, and a stork arrived!”
She explained: “The lovely Samantha Giles, who plays Bernice, is a follower of Wicca.
“People had said to me, ‘Have you ever spoken to Sam as she does spells and charms and she can do a charm for you’ because I was trying to get pregnant at the time.
“It was one of three things… Wicca is all about harnessing the power of nature and you do a spell with charms and stones around the moon, and the timing of the new moon.
“It is either complete coincidence I got pregnant within three weeks of doing this spell. Or it made me relax and laugh as my partner went up on the roof to try to get the stone in the highest part of the house.
“Or, as I like to think, it was magic.”
Holly Willoughby replied: “The moon is a powerful thing.”
What else has Samantha Giles used wicca for?
Samantha appeared on morning show Lorraine in 2017 and spoke about the spell she cast to find her husband, Sean.
She told the host: “I cast a love spell before I met him to find the right person.
“It’s not as bonkers as it sounds because lots of people are into manifesting. A lot of people have read The Secret, it’s ritualising it and using all kids of things.
“I use candles and crystals and I wrote down exactly what I was after and when I met Sean and he was everything that I asked for.”
The star went on to reassure Lorraine, 57, that she only practices white magic.
Samantha added: “You can’t do anything bad because it just comes back on yourself three fold.”
Samantha returned to Emmerdale earlier this year after leaving in 2020 to explore other avenues, including writing children’s books.
Following on from her debut novel Rosemary and the Witches of Pendle Hill, Sam has written two more books with Rosemary and the Book of the Dead released today (October 14, 2021).
She also launched her own website earlier this year selling spells, charms and crystals.
Emmerdale usually airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
