EMMERDALE’S Moira Barton is one of the village’s most recognisable faces.
But who is the actress Natalie J Robb who plays her and is she leaving the ITV soap? We take a look..
Who is Natalie J Robb?
Natalie Joy Robb was born December 3, 1974 and is a Scottish actress.
She played the role of Trish McDonald in the Scottish Television soap opera Take the High Road from 1990-99.
She now stars in ITV’s Emmerdale playing Moira Barton and has been on the show since 2009.
Her other television roles include Dream Team (2000–2001), Doctors (2001–2004) and The Bill (2004–2005).
Is Natalie J Robb dating co-star Jonny McPherson?
The Emmerdale pair sparked rumours they have been secretly dating after appearing together on a Zoom call to celebrate co-star Jonny’s birthday.
Natalie who plays Moira Dingle in the soap, appeared alongside Jonny, who plays Liam Fox on Emmerdale, for the virtual birthday party, sending fans into a frenzy.
Many went on to assume that the soap pair are isolating together during the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple have allegedly been keeping their relationship under wraps since the start of the year.
A source told The Mirror: “Natalie has had her fair share of romps as Moira but this time she’s found love off screen. Everyone is so happy for them.
“Lockdown gave them some quality time together and they couldn’t be happier. It’s still early days but Natalie can’t stop smiling.”
Is Natalie J Robb leaving Emmerdale?
Last year Natalie confirmed she’d signed a year-long contract with the soap.
However, it is unsure what her fate on Emmerdale will be now as Moira is currently lying in a coma after being accidentally run over by Jamie last week.
Natalie told Metro.co.uk: “It is life threatening and she’s in a bad way. ‘I think apparently her liver gets split so she won’t be drinking for a while, which is not a bad thing.
“So it is life threatening and I think that might be another reason why you’ll see Cain realise how much he feels for her when he realises he may lose her.
