Emmerdale's Sally Dexter on why she is leaving the soap

Emmerdale's Sally Dexter has weighed in on Faith Dingle's upcoming exit from the village.

The actress admitted that while she would "never say never" to the idea of returning to the 'dales, it felt like now was the right time to go.

Explaining how she was leaving the show to pursue new projects, she told Inside Soap:

“At the beginning of this year, I was thinking about my job at Emmerdale and how much I love it and how I’d hate for it to become anything less than the job I adore.

“So, I’m leaving now, but maybe one day I’ll come back to it.

"Never say never. After all, Cain needs his mum. Whenever people see me out and about in the street, they tell me that I need to keep him in order."

But, before Faith leaves the 'dales, she's going to set into motion one of the soap's explosive October plot lines as she tells Cain she reckons Moira is having an affair.

And her revelation leads to some explosive consequences for some of the village's residents.

Cain is initially told that it is Pete Moira is having the affair with, however Pete is quick to spill the beans that it is actually Nate Robinson who is having an affair with Moira.

Cain convinces Moira and Nate to go on a fishing trip, but as he sets out to get the truth and a row between the two men ensures, disaster strikes - and viewers are going to have to wait to find out who will get out alive.
