Charity Tate Returns To Emmerdale

Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.  

Hey soapsters, here’s a bit good news for all you Emmerdale fans out there. Actress Emma Atkins is set to reprise her role as Charity Tate later this year. The producers promise she’ll be as controversial as ever. The 33-year-old, who played the role for five years between 2000 and 2005, is the first in a wave of "stunning new signings" that will inject a new lease of life into the show over the coming months.

The announcement comes two months after producers revealed that Jeff Hordley was returning as Charity’s cousin, and former lover, Cain Dingle. Apparently, former prostitute Charity will leave daughter Debbie (Charley Webb) shocked when she appears for the first time since leaving a trail of heartbreak behind her in 2005.

Cast your mind back to when she walked out on Debbie after having an affair with Sadie King’s husband Jimmy. Emma, 33, said: "Charity is a wonderfully complex character and an absolute joy to play. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to explore a new era of Charity, Cain and Debbie and will relish seeing what she’s been up to since we saw her last."

Producers claim the shocks in Emmerdale won’t end with the reintroduction of these two controversial characters. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see Emmerdale’s Charity Tate and Cain Dingle back in the show. They’re definitely the ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ of the Dales and their return can only mean good things for the soap. So, what are your thoughts on their great comeback? Leave a comment and tell us what you think. 

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip and the results of last week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.

    Great stuff that Charity & Cain are coming back!!! If the writer,s & producer,s really want to raise the ratings, then they should get rid of the boring family(wooden actor,s) who have taken over the Kings gaff & return the Kings to their former glory.

  2. Unknown says:

    I agree, say goodbye to the Wylde (sooo inappropriately named?!) family, the dad (? Mark) wears a shockingly unconvincing \’syrup of figs\’ wig!!!!!!!

  3. wendy says:

    Am really chuffed about Cain and Charity coming back to Emmerdale, I think Jeff is LUSH, It\’s about time the Dingles were back together again, any chance Mandy could come back for Paddy?

  4. Lynda says:

    Can\’t wait for Cain and Charity to come back,the sooner the better,they\’ll add a much needed bit of ooomph to the show.Hope they\’re going to get up to lots of mischief?I also agree get the Kings back into Home Farm where they belong.

  5. jenny says:

    will be luvly to see cain and charity back ,and hopefully the exit of the wylde family , they make me want to turn off,lets see more of belle she is a dose of tonic with her one liners ,lets hope she will go far?

  6. Lorrie says:

    The disinteresting family Wylde – out – exciting charity and cain – in.

  7. pa says:

    keep it clean and fun… and i\’ll start watching it again… cain and charity were great and also bring the kings back too home farm and keep the po lady clean and happy with bob… get that stupid sister out of dianas pub shes ruined the show for ages… so bring back the girl who steph thought drowned in the sea… that would cause steph to faint with fright… keep the poofters out of the show it s not nice to watch … sickening in fact… love pam

  8. Adam says:

    Yeah i agree with bringing Charity Tate back as there are no Tate Family in Emmerdale now. I think the Wylde family are too fake as i dont like Nathan as he act like if he know it all and want everyone to look at him, Mark and Masie i aint warmed up to at all so those three out please. Natasha and Will i got to say are the best two out of the family as Natasha and Will both had storylines with Lisa and Belle Dingle and other people of the village. Which i think made me like them two because as Lisa and Belle are everyone favourite and i think Natasha and Will should stay on.You can\’t go wrong with bringing Charity and Cain back for their daughter Debbie and Grandaugher Sarah as look at EastEnders with Ricky and Bianca? Their comeback was great and i think Charity and Cain are the Ricky and Bianca of Emmerdale.

  9. lynda says:

    Thank heavens Charity and Cain are coming back.The programme is going down hill and the Wylde family are awful!Used to be i wouldntve missed an episode but now i dont care if i do!

  10. iona says:

    Got to agree, I\’ll look forward to the return of Charity, and I\’d be glad to see the back of the Wyldes. While the parents are sufferable their sprogs are nauseating.If the Kings were re-instated at Home Farm, Charity Tate-King would be a great prospective. After all, Nasty Nicola couldn\’t hold a candle to her.

  11. ROBIN says:

    Personally I would be delighted to see charit dingle and Cain coming back into it, they are both surely missed!

  12. Mavis says:

    Emmerdale is in free fall, story lines are now an insult to adult intelligence. Never thought I would watch Dog Whisperer instead. I think it is almost beyond normal rescusition methods. RACKWICK

  13. Christine says:

    Can\’t wait to see Charity and Cain back. PLEASE PLEASE GET RID OF THE WYLDES- Nathan in particular would look amateurish at our village pantomine.

  15. carol says:

    C,ummon I know your hiding steve in there!

  16. Beryl says:

    Yippee! I\’ve been longing for Charity to return.. wondering WHERE she was. Great that Cain\’s also coming back. I can\’t stand Diane\’s sister Val. Yuk! The woodentop Wyldes have gotta go. Let\’s see Charity return with loads of Chris Tates or Tom Kings secret inheritance.. buy out the Wyldes and be a Rich, down to earth Home Farm owner. Also, more animals for Paddy and Andy.

  17. susan says:

    good god is that a nose or just a big zit???

  18. diane says:

    thats brill i loved her and I hate that new family

  19. diane says:

  20. diana says:

    This soap gets better every time i watch it cant wait for the new story lines cain and charity i cant wait they are bound to clash with the Wyldes, and bell is so funny also love the Dingles Dogs i want too give them a big hug.

  21. Unknown says:

    Charity and Cain are the business…but i must admit the soap has never been the same since Charity left. She\’s been my no.1 attraction of the soap from the 1st day I watched it. I\’ve been waiting patiently for 4 yrs for her return. Roll on!!!

  22. lee says:
