Emmerdale star Michelle Hardwick makes her return to the show as Vanessa Woodfield after a 19 month absence, and she has a lot of threads to pick up with old friends and foes alike.

She’s disturbed when her ex, Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) wants to see her son Johnny, as Michelle Hardwick explains. ‘Vanessa’s not into that at all,’ she says.

Charity hasn’t seen Johnny while Vanessa has been away. ’She thinks because she’s not seen Johnny for such a long time and she’s trying to protect him.’

Charity and Johnny used to have a close bond and she was trying to adopt the boy, but Michelle thinks this is something that Vanessa shrugs aside.

‘I know there was the adoption before Vanessa left to go and see her mum but I don’t think Vanessa thinks it’s healthy for Charity to be spending so much time with Johnny,’ she insists.

‘Obviously they’re going to be seeing each other because they live in the same village, but Vanessa’s not a fan.

‘Whether that changes or not in the future, I don’t know, but certainly for now she doesn’t want that to happen.’
