Emmerdale fans will remember Louise played Chrissie White

She is best known to fans as millionaire businesswoman Chrissie White from the sister soap Emmerdale.

But in Weatherfield she’s playing Phill’s ex who turned up trying to win back her ex leaving Fiz Stape devastated.

Fans couldn’t believe the Chrissie White star was on the cobbles.

One wrote: “Oh god it’s her off Emmerdale!”

A second said: “What was Camilla in before? It’s driving me mad!”

Another added: “Cam looks familiar!”

Actress Louise shot to fame in Emmerdale as Home Farm inhabitant Chrissie in 2015 – arriving in the village with a returning Robert Sugden.

But she decided to quit the soap to return to her life in London, with Chrissie being killed by her own son Lachlan.

Speaking about her exit at the time, Louise said: “I am very sad actually, because we have become really close.

“Myself, Ryan Hawley (Robert), Tom Atkinson (Lachlan) and John Bowe (Lawrence) all came into the show at the same time. 

“And it feels like Emily Head (Rebecca) has been here all the time too, as we’ve become so close.

“Obviously we’ll stay friends forever, but I’m not going to see them everyday, so that will take a while to sink in. 

“It’s everybody else in the building too, like the crew. It’s amazing team of people – I have never met a team like it in my life and I may never again, so that’s incredibly sad.

“I am going back to London now, so who knows what’s next? It’s that thing of going to auditions. It was the right time to leave, as three years is a good stint to do.

“It’s very tempting to stay, but my life is in London, so it was time to go. 

“It’s a hell of a gamble to take as you never know what is around the corner, but that quite excites me.”

Actress Louise is now playing Phill’s ex-wife on Corrie
