AS her cancer continues to take over, Faith Dingle made the decision to end her life on her own terms.

Emmerdale star Sally Dexter is bowing out of the ITV soap in emotional scenes due to air next week.

Faith Dingle makes happy memories next week

One of her closest friends returns to the village

She soon decides to go ahead with her plan to end her life

Faith is terminally ill and has been spending time trying to make fresh happy memories with her loved ones – until she came to the conclusion she wouldn’t want them to see her on her deathbed.

After a heartfelt conversation with Aaron (returning actor Danny Miller), Faith gets an idea.

Brimming with excitement, she shares her plans for a family day with the rest of the Dingles, asserting they’ll all be going to the seaside.

When her health takes a turn for the worse and their trip seems compromised, Faith is insistent that they have to go ahead with the trip.

Meanwhile, her son Cain (Jeff Hordley) is determined to find a solution and, after some secret planning, Faith is overwhelmed to see what they’ve done as the Dingles and her friends bring the seaside to her.

A grateful Faith watches her family revel in the fun, delighted by how perfect her day is.

Better yet, when Diane Sugden returns to the eponymous village and Cain even asks her to dance – putting their grievances to bed once and for all – Faith is over the moon.

Once her day is over, Faith blissfully holds a picture of her family against her but her daughter-in-law Moira (Natalie J. Robb) is unsettled, knowing that Faith is dropping hints she may be ending her life soon.

Moira is desperate to stop Faith from committing suicide, while the village veteran assures her she won’t be going ahead with her plan anytime soon.

But a guilty look from Faith teases her true intentions and she soon says her veiled goodbyes.

In later scenes, Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) leads his grandmother to bed, unaware she will soon be ending her life.

Once alone, Faith switches off her phone and takes one last look at the pictures from yesterday’s adventure.

Faith prepares to end her days alone and, later on, Cain walks in to realise what she has done.

Devastated, he tries to keep her comfortable as she drifts closer to death.

The Emmerdale tough man is heartbroken when he notices that Faith has taken her final breath.

Faith’s family and friends soon hear about her death and are left devastated.

What’s next for the Dingles?

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
