"I'd just like to say what an amazing experience I've had here at Emmerdale," Halfpenny said of her exit.

"I've made the best friends and I will carry the memories on through the rest of my career."

She added: "It's completely changed my life, as It's given me confidence and I'm coming out of it having learnt so much.

"I now feel ready to move on and play other characters, although playing Amy Wyatt has been more fun than I'd ever imagined."

Amy has been involved in dramatic scenes recently, with baby son Kyle falling into a river while he was supposed to be under her supervision.

Kyle's adopted grandmother Joanie (Denise Black) has consequently banned her from having any further contact with the youngster.

Discussing the river scenes, Halfpenny told Digital Spy: "I absolutely loved it, actually. I know it's an awful thing to happen, but luckily it turns out okay. The actual filming of it was amazing."
