Faith Dingle (played by Sally Dexter) has been suffering unusual pains in recent weeks and believes her cancer is back. The fan-favourite was diagnosed with breast cancer and revealed she had undergone a double mastectomy in 2017. With a rift already between herself and children Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) and Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter), Faith is worried the news of her dying could bring them back under false pretences. With Emmerdale keeping the cancer test results under wraps for a while longer, the actress has spoken out about her storyline and what’s to come. Is she hinting at Faith not having cancer – or at least terminal – and sticking around in the Dales for a while longer? 

In scenes set to air next week, Faith accompanies Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) and Brenda  Walker (Lesley Dunlop) to the shop to buy provisions for lunch. 

And David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) is the first to comment on their weird dynamic, with Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) making coded remarks on the nature of their living arrangements. 

Realising there is a way to stop the gossip, Brenda suggests Faith should tell her family about her health worries, but Faith wants to wait until she has a  definite diagnosis.

Later that day, whilst lifting some boxes, Brenda pulls a muscle and Faith offers to give her a massage. 

Mackenzie arrives and overhears some intriguing conversation between the two women and his imagination is sent into overdrive. 

Back in the village, Mackenzie can’t stop telling people about what is going on up at the barn. 

And when Sarah walks in and overhears Faith talking about death she demands answers. 

Realising she will have to tell the truth, Sarah questions her great-grandmother about cancer and whether it has returned. 

Emmerdale fans will see Faith admit she’s had tests but insists no one else can know yet. 

Meanwhile, in the pub, the gossipers confront Eric who is left squirming to fend off the suspicions. 

Faith pleads with a distressed Sarah to keep quiet, but as Chas appears from behind the bar, she demands the truth and it looks like Faith will be forced to come clean.

 

When asked why Faith is reluctant to inform Cain and Chas about her possible declining health, the actress who plays Faith explained “she’s trying to protect them”. 

“She doesn’t feel guilty, she feels she’s doing what’s necessary to safeguard them and to not have them worrying in a way which might not be necessary – until she knows these test results, she can’t know what’s she’s dealing with and she feels she can’t share it,” Sally added. 

But because Faith is keen to keep the possibility of cancer a secret is she concerned about the rumours?

Sally said: “She’s not that bothered, she just thinks it’s silly and she doesn’t want the fuss, or attention drawn because she doesn’t want the truth to come out about her fears about having cancer again.”

should the truth come out, will she be able to reunite with Cain and Chas?  

“Yes, I really would [like that],” Sally replied. “Because it’s quite an extraordinary thing, the people I am closest to in real life off the set are the ones I am furthest away from on the set! 

“I think there will be a lot of fun to be had if they were reunited as a family, there’s a lot of battles, they could fight the world then – protecting one another.” 

Fans have been surprised to see Faith and Brenda get close considering their interactions when Faith returned earlier this year, is there a friendship on the cards? 

“I hope so, there could be fallings out, but I think there is a basic level of understanding,” the actress commented. “Sometimes, friends can fall out more than people who you don’t really know – enemies. 

“I hope they don’t ever become true enemies, they we’re beginning to be enemies at one time. 

“But Brenda has been very kind and helpful to Faith and Faith with always remember that, always remember kindness. I think she’ll forget some of the bad stuff, but she will always remember kindness.” 

Sally also discussed who she is enjoying filming with and she listed: “Well it’s always fabulous with Jeff and Lucie, Chris and Lesley. 

“And I really enjoyed filming with Katie and Izzie too – they’re the main people I’ve been with and I just love the way they work, they’ve got a great work ethic but they do enjoy a good laugh as well.” 

Does this mean Faith is not going to be killed off anytime soon? 

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
