Michelle Hardwick on Emmerdale

Michelle plays Vanessa on Emmerdale and she has found herself single again following her split from Suzy.

It turned out Suzy had been doing cocaine and supplied Holly Barton with the money to buy the drugs that killed her.

Vanessa found out the truth and although she could have got over the drugs, she couldn’t deal with the lies and ended things.

It’s clear she’s heartbroken though and next week Paddy will urge Moira, Holly’s mum, to give Vanessa her blessing to reunite with Suzy.

But will it work out? Can they really go back.

With Michelle Hardwick expecting another baby so heading off on maternity leave soon, we can guess there’s probably no happy-ever-after on the horizon…

Emmerdale usually airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV, with an hour episode on Thursdays.
