Charity’s worries disappear when she and Vanessa celebrate their anniversary

Charity’s casual announcement last month that Vanessa had already left the Dales to stay with her mum left fans fearing that the pair might split up.

And viewers know that Charity has been feeling lonely and anxious not having heard from Vanessa for a while.

On top of that, Charity’s mission to adopt Vanessa’s son Johnny was nearly thwarted when Kirin showed up in Emmerdale village in September. 

Charity and Vanessa enjoy a virtual celebration

Kirin was quick to blackmail Charity into giving him a load of cash – or he’d stop her adopting Johnny. 

But after Paddy rang the police and Kirin injured himself trying to break into the garage, Charity dressed up as a nurse and confronted Kirin in hospital.

Charity then made a false promise to get him out of hospital if he signed the adoption forms, which he agreed to.

Tracy and Rhona are thrilled to see Vanessa too

Next week’s episodes of Emmerdale will see Charity’s paranoia subside when she has a virtual romantic anniversary with Vanessa. 

Charity has a hoot as she enjoys dinner with a mannequin with a tablet stuck to its head and Vanessa’s face on the screen.

Will she be united with Vanessa soon?

Speaking about how Charity’s mission to adopt Vanessa’s son will continue despite Vanessa’s absence, the actress told Metro: “Charity adopting Johnny is a massive step in their relationship.

“Obviously with me not being on-screen for the foreseeable due to my pregnancy, the story will continue going forward as Charity navigates her life and parenthood in the absence of Vanessa.”
