'Emmerdale' Emma Atkins "can't wait" for Rachel baby reveal

By
Emmerdale star Emma Atkins has admitted that she is "intrigued" to discover how her character Charity Sharma will react to the truth about Rachel Breckle's baby.

Charity currently has no idea that her husband Jai is the father of Rachel's unborn child, still blissfully unaware that they had a one-night stand earlier this year.

Speaking to The Sun about how Charity will feel when the truth comes out, Atkins commented: "I'm really intrigued. I don't know how they will write it. I think Charity will be very shocked that she'd not worked it out, because Jai has essentially been leading a double life.

"That's been going on under Charity's nose and yet she absolutely has no idea. Usually she doesn't miss a trick. She's a great detective. It's going to be one hell of a revelation. I can't wait to play it."

Asked what keeps Charity interesting for her to play, she replied: "She's got a constant curiosity as to what she could make herself. She loves to learn. She's quite a bright cookie. And even though she makes mistakes she learns from them."

Chris Bisson, who plays the role of Jai, recently confirmed that his storyline with Rachel has a long way to go.

He said earlier this week: "That continues to build. We've got a little bit of a break from it while we get through the live episode, then we're straight back into it for Christmas and the New Year. But that's a long-running story, so watch this space."
