Emmerdale spoilers - Vanessa returns to her mum's rather than coming home to Emmerdale to reunite with fiancee Charity
It’s a big day for Charity (Emma Atkins) who is off to court for the hearing about adopting Johnny, who’s her fiancee Vanessa’s (Michelle Hardwick) son. Getting to this point has taken tons of blood, sweat and tears.
But the day is also going to be a big deal for Charity for another reason.
As she heads off to court, the landlady is desperate to see Vanessa who’s been living at her mum’s while she’s recuperating from cancer.
