Emmerdale: Chelsea Halfpenny says pregnant Amy just needs support

Emmerdale actress Chelsea Halfpenny has revealed to the show’s official website that now her character Amy Wyatt has discovered she’s pregnant, all she really wants is for someone to offer her some support.

As viewers will know, Amy is about to learn she’s pregnant following a one-night stand with village rogue Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).

Chelsea said, “When Amy found out she was pregnant it was a massive shock and devastation because this is the last thing she wants.

“Her and Val and Eric are just getting close again and she doesn’t want to have to tell them that she’s pregnant, so she’s gutted really…

“At this point Val, Eric and Amy are in a good place. They think that Amy’s all happy and she’s helping out with the housework and the work in the B&B…

“But they don’t realise it’s because she’s trying to butter them up to explain to them everything that’s happened. So they’re in for a big shock.

“I think Val thinks she’s got a really good relationship with Amy, but Amy obviously knows that there’s some things she needs to tell her.”

Chelsea also revealed that Amy had been hoping Cain would help her through the tough times ahead.

She said, “She really cared what Cain thought because she needed the support…

“And I think she expected him to act like an adult and take responsibility for what both of them had done and he didn’t.

“The fact that he just says ‘I want you to get rid of it and I don’t care about you or this baby’ and he gets really violent with her.

“It’s a real shock to the system.”

We’ll see Amy’s pregnancy drama unfolding in the coming week.
