Speaking on Daybreak this morning (November 7), Black spoke about her plans to star in a new stage show.

She said: "It's called Birth of the Musical. It's brand new and I'm learning it at the moment - it's 90 minutes on my tod with Graeme Taylor, who plays guitar, and my hubby, who's on the piano.

"It's songs from the end of the First World War to the beginning of the Second.

"I actually gave [singing] up for a while. When I had the kids I thought, 'I'm spreading myself too thin', so I did the soap and I did the TV dramas. I've been on the road for a while but now I've gone back."

Joanie's exasperated by Amy's determination to get Kyle back and tells her she has no hope.

Black has already filmed her final scenes on Emmerdale, which will be aired next week, as Amy's and Joanie's storyline reaches a conclusion.

Speaking about her time on the soap, Black said: "I've had a fantastic time there. It's really on song at the moment. The scripts come through and they're great. The producer is fantastic, everybody you work with is happy. What more could you ask for?

"Obviously Chelsea [Halfpenny], I'm really serving her storyline. She was brilliant to work with. She's so different [to Amy] - she's soft. She's going on to great things."

Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
