Fans of Emmerdale will know that young Gabby Thomas (Annelise Manojlovic) hasn’t been a happy bunny for months, what with her father Ashley and her step-mum Laurel breaking up and Laurel subsequently moving in with her lover, Marlon (Mark Charnock).
Add to that the fact that the child’s biological mum Bernice (Samantha Giles) turned up in the village and is now setting up home with her lover Steve (Tom Mannion) it’s little wonder that the kid’s going off the rails…
And as we’ll see in next week’s episodes, despite the fact that she’s just 12 years old, she’s set to give her parents – and their partners – a stark glimpse of what’s to come in her teenage years when she first steals from the Woolpack till, then gets drunk at school!

It’ll soon transpire that Bernice had come running home to mum because she’s having marital problems, and needs some breathing space away from her husband to figure out what she wants.
But of course, her arrival comes at a bad time for separated couple Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) and Ashley Thomas (John Middleton) because they are currently trying to get young Gabby settled into the routine of sharing her time between Laurel and Ashley’s respective homes.
However, Bernice is of course Gabby’s biological daughter, and Laurel is therefore only her step-mother, and to make things worse for Laurel, Gabby hates her, blaming her for splitting the Thomas family up… Read more & comment »

However, what Bernice doesn’t immediately admit is that she’s been having an affair, which is something she has a previous history of!
