'Emmerdale' actress quits
Emma Atkins, Emmerdale's Charity Tate, has decided to quit the long running ITV soap after four and a half years, claiming that "it is time to move on."

Charity has become one of the soap's most controversial characters starring in storylines which have included a lesbian fling, a steamy affair with her cousin, Cain, and a murder charge.

Atkins said: "I still can't believe how lucky I have been to be trusted with so many fantastic storylines and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every minute"

"I will be desperately sad to say goodbye to everyone but there are so many other roles that I would like to try and it's important to me that Charity leaves on a high," she continued.

Charity's explosive exit from Emmerdale is scheduled for early next year. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
