With her dad Dan (Liam Fox) in prison for killing creepy pervert Lloyd (Matt Sutton), Emmerdale favourite Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) has been having a hard time coping on her own.
The whole village was stunned when Dan was sentenced to 8 years behind bars after a single punch resulted in Lloyd eventually dying from a head wound. Dan, not a violent person, had been trying to look out for his daughter and had lashed out in a moment of madness.
His imprisonment has left Amelia on her own for the first time in her life. While trying to put on a brave front, dealing with things like council tax while looking after baby Esther was all turning out to be rather a lot for her.
Noah (Jack Downham) was worried and confided in Chas (Lucy Pargeter), who came up with a solution: she invited Amelia and Esther to move into the Woolpack to live with her and Eve (Bella James).
At first Amelia rejected this offer, reasoning that she needed to keep living at Dale Head so Dan’s home would be there for him when he finally got out of prison. Eventually, however, the stresses of trying to cope on her own got too much and she accepted Chas’s offer.
In upcoming episodes we’ll see her settling in to her new home. And we’ll also see a new role for her as, keen to help pay her way, she offers to help Chas out behind the bar of the most famous pub in the Dales.
If Amelia takes to pulling pints with the same ease that she brought to bear when she started working at the salon, she’ll be a complete gift of a lodger for Chas. Mandy (Lisa Riley) was delighted at how quickly Amelia took to working in the salon, she’s a hard worker and she has plenty of initiative.
Plus, she’s got to be better than Gail (Rachael Gill-Davis).
She follows a long line of current and previous bar staff including Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw), Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromely), Moira Barton (Natalie J. Robb) and of course Mandy Dingle. Will she end up being a long-term fixture behind the bar too?
