Where has Faith been in Emmerdale? Sally Dexter reveals all

Sally has been away from Emmerdale for over a year

Faith returned to Emmerdale in tonight’s episodes (Thursday, February 25) after over a year away. But where she been?

Faith left the village in October 2019 after it was revealed that she knew about Cain’s long-lost son Nate.

In 2019, farmhand Nate had been having an affair with Cain’s wife Moira.

In a dramatic scene, Nate revealed to Cain that he was his son and the affair as revenge for him abandoning him and his mum.

However Cain had no idea Nate existed. It wasn’t long before Faith came in and explained everything…

In the 90s Cain had a relationship with Nate’s mum Cara, who he met in a bar. However Shadrach had a racist attitude and warned her to keep away from Cain.

But when Faith discovered Cara was pregnant, she coerced her into leaving and not telling Cain about the baby, fearing what Shadrach would do.

Where has Faith been in Emmerdale?

When asked what Faith had been up since leaving the village, Sally Dexter, who plays Faith, told Entertainment Daily and other media: “She’s been gone over a year and she had to find work.

“I think first of all I think she stopped off at the off-licence up the road, around the corner in Hotten with mucky Marilyn.
