She continued: “So when it came to it, it wasn’t as emotional because the technicality of what you have to do takes away from the emotion so I managed to get through the day without sobbing,” she told Digital Spy.
Fans were also stunned to see Emmerdale favourite Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steel) succumb to the extreme weather.
On the shocking 19 October episode, she was crushed by a caravan as she attempted to reach the pub to protect Paddy Kirk’s (Dominic Brunt) daughter.
