Pauline Quirke doesn’t know how she’ll be written out of Emmerdale
As fans of the show will probably know, Pauline is leaving her role as Hazel Rhodes in order to take a stage show of Birds of a Feather on the road with her fellow leading ladies, Lesley Joseph and Linda Robson.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Pauline said, “I don’t know how I’ll be leaving the Dales. I don’t even know if it’ll be with a bang or a whimper.
“But they’ve said they’re not going to kill me off, which is nice.”
As Hazel, Pauline has of course been playing the role of a grieving mum, and so has often appeared on-screen looking “haggard”, however, she says this has nothing to do with her dramatic weight loss.
She said, “I haven’t worn make-up on camera for months, which hasn’t exactly helped what people have called my ‘haggard’ appearance.”
And of leaving, Pauline said, “I’ll miss Emmerdale. It’s the most beautiful location and I’ve made some fantastic friends.”
