EMMERDALE youngster Amelia Spencer has had her world turned upside down in recent scenes on the ITV soap but following a hint in Friday night’s episode, a new theory she might be about to receive some heartbreaking news.
When the doctors informed Amelia (played by Daisy Campbell) that she was expecting, she learned she was pregnant during Thursday night’s episode of Emmerdale. This occurred as her uncle Dan Spencer (Liam Fox) demanded that his niece be examined after falling and experiencing dizziness for several weeks. The schoolgirl might not have had a sexual relationship with anyone in the ITV soap opera, so perhaps the medical professionals were mistaken.
The opening scene of Friday’s edition of the weekly drama series featured Amelia alone in the chapel listening to Dan’s call.
The mechanic wanted to make sure the child was okay after learning this week that she had been taking weight-gaining syrup and not telling her uncle where she was going.
Amelia kept declining her uncle’s calls because she believed she needed some alone time and that she should speak to God.
She said, “I realise what I did was wrong, I should have never lied to Gabby,” making reference to how she attempted to deflect responsibility for firing Thomas Tate (Bertie Brotherton) after her most recent breakdown.
She continued as she broke down in tears at the prospect of becoming a mother: “I promise I won’t lie again. No matter how bad things might get.”
But why did you feel the need to conceive me? Amelia inquired of God, implying that she believed she was becoming into the next Virgin Mary.
She questioned, “Are you testing me?” before revealing a letter that included yet another visiting order to see Noah Dingle (Jack Downham).
Before standing up and leaving the church, she said, “I just know, somehow, I’m going to have to speak the truth.”
After this moment, she attempted to announce her pregnancy to Noah and Kerry Wyatt (Laura Norton), but she was unable to bring herself to do so.
Given that Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) informed Amelia that her family was being evicted from their house, it appears she will have to keep this a secret for as long as she can.
Amelia’s belief that this pregnancy is a sign from God, even if she hasn’t yet engaged in sexual activity, may point to something else.
A woman may occasionally exhibit the signs and symptoms of pregnancy without actually being pregnant.
This might be the case because a scan would be necessary before the doctors could determine whether the young patient has cancer.
The doctors might start to suspect there is no child present when she begins her first examination of the infant.
They could identify the girl as having ovarian cancer after doing some further tests on her.
As she realises she will require the assistance and support of her loved ones, this might turn her world upside down once more.
She would reveal that this was actually the cancer presenting itself after telling them all that it was thought she was pregnant.
Dan would be devastated since he understands how difficult the upcoming months of his niece’s therapy will be for her.
He would assure her that he would be by her side at every turn since he did not want her to face this situation alone.
Amelia dropped Thomas with Gabby still on their backs, and she could be surprised to find out what exactly caused the child to pass out.
Feeling guilty for putting Amelia and her family through so much pressure at this time, Gabby would back off to give them some time for themselves.
However, it would be a few weeks before Amelia would back to the hospital to discover how advanced the ovarian cancer is.
After receiving a diagnosis, she can be informed that the disease is quite advanced and that the only thing they can do for her is to make it less uncomfortable.
She and Dan would both be horrified to learn about her prognosis, and the young girl would question if therapy could have begun earlier when she first shown symptoms.
The show’s executive producer, Jane Hudson, stated that the younger actors would be tackling more sombre tales this season.
“It’s really important that we keep our youngsters coming through because they are our next generation,” Jane added but will this include Amelia’s cancer story?
