It's been a while since Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) has been on-screen in Emmerdale. If my memory serves me correctly she hasn't been seen since before the lockdown episodes earlier this year and with Michelle Hardwick's real-life pregnancy it was best on a medical standpoint to keep the actor at home to avoid potential complications especially with CoronaVirus Pandemic alterting the lives of many across the globe.
In tonight's (Monday 12 October 2020) episode, viewers saw Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) become irritable as she kept being avoided by her fiancée.
Unknown to Charity, Vanessa had been conspiring with her sister Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh) & bestie Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) to plan a surprise for Charity on the anniversary of when they - Charity & Vanessa - got together.
Safe to say Charity was not expecting a 'reunion' with Vanessa.
Tracy and Rhona quicky made themselves scarce and left Charity and Vanessa to have a much-needed and long-overdue catchup. Fans of the ITV/STV serial drama took to Social Media site Twitter expressing their joy for the reunion.
Emmerdale continues tomorrow at 19:00 on ITV/STV.
