CATHY Hope returned to the Dales after taking a break due to her PMDD symptoms making her life more difficult.

But mere moments following her return to Emmerdale, the teen played by Gabrielle Dowling lashes out against Wendy Posner.

Cathy Hope has been struggling with explosive mood swings and even hurt her father Bob Hope during an incontrollable fit of anger in recent months.

This led her to try and run away but after being brought back home, she decided it was best for her to take a break from her routine in Yorkshire.

Prior to her exit, village GP Manpreet Sharma suspected the schoolgirl could be suffering from premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) but no official diagnosis had been made.

However, in scenes airing next week on ITV, there’s relief all round as Cathy is officially diagnosed with PMDD.

Bob’s (portrayed by Tony Audenshaw) sympathetic to Cathy’s condition but she’s left feeling disappointed and desperate when her treatment is to manage her symptoms instead of an outright cure.

Back at the B&B, an upset and volatile Cathy blindsides Bob by defiantly insisting she wants to find a cure to stop her PMDD symptoms.

Despite the best efforts of Bob, Wendy and Bernice, Cathy is unrelenting in her desire to cure her PMDD.

Later on, in a heated moment, Cathy throws a garden ornament through a B&B window, just missing Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker).
