Emmerdale star Karen Blick battles online imposter

She shared a screenshot of an imposter account, claiming to be her on Instagram. In the screenshotted message, Karen’s imposter wrote: “Hi, how are you. Do you mind if I add you to my new Instagram clothing line, cause I will be launching my own products by the end of next week.”

Fans reacted with shock in the comments. Many jokingly suggested that she could bring out a line of cleaning equipment and clothing – as her character, Lydia, is a cleaner on Emmerdale.

“Ooh aprons, dusters could be a good shout Karen,” laughed one fan.

“Oh I don’t know…. the Lydia Tunic would be a must for all cleaners,” said another.

Gutted, got all excited that we were going to be able to buy Lydia’s tabbards in multiple rainbow colours. Shattered my dreams!
