Returning to the village as barmaid in The Woolpack, Chas is then targeted by an anonymous stalker who tries to make her leave Emmerdale.
Actress Pargeter told What's On TV: "It's creepy. She's already on edge because of everything that's happened and then somebody starts targeting her. If she knew who it was she's ballsy enough to stand up to them, but it's the not knowing.
"She starts getting these prank calls and she has no idea who they're from, so it does make her a bit uneasy and she starts to feel like maybe she should just sell up and go and it would be a lot easier for her family and she wouldn't have to deal with everybody, but then she starts to think, 'This is all I've got left really'."
Chas has made many enemies after her affair with niece Debbie's boyfriend Cameron Murray was exposed. She receives anonymous calls and has the feeling that she is being followed around her home.
The soap actress said: "There are stones thrown at the window and she goes outside and there's a photograph of her and Carl. She thinks it's Cain and then she thinks it's Debbie, and then she gets the same photograph posted to her with her eyes scratched out.
"There's a bottle thrown at her, that misses her, but she gets a cut on her face. It is a bit more than threatening behaviour."
