EMMERDALE icon Val Pollard was killed off seven years ago on the ITV soap but a new theory by suggests she could play a huge part in the show’s milestone anniversary later this year.
One of the most adored Emmerdale characters, Val (played by Charlie Hardwick), was Diane Sugden’s (Elizabeth Estensen) sister and Eric Pollard’s (Eric Pollard) wife. Val lived in the village from 2004 until 2015 and was one of the show’s most popular characters (Chris Chittell). As part of the show’s 43rd anniversary episodes, viewers of the ITV soap opera were devastated to learn that the character was a victim of the helicopter crash that nearly destroyed the hamlet. It appears that every effort is being made to make the upcoming 50th anniversary one to remember, which may involve raising Val from the grave.
A few recognizable faces from the second-longest running soap opera in the UK have already been guaranteed to return.
There are many characters that are still living who may return, but bringing a character back from the dead can give an additional element of surprise.
It wouldn’t be the first time the program had brought a character back from the dead; Lisa Dingle (Jane Cox) and others have allegedly made contact with their living relatives.
Since the 50th anniversary’s finer details are now under wraps, Val’s reappearance might remain a secret until transmission.
Although they didn’t spend much time together on-screen, Samantha still has a lot of admiration for Bernice, Val’s niece.
“I think Val was wonderful, she was such a fabulous character,” the soap opera star said. On the program, she was the only one of her kind. Furthermore, in my opinion, killing her was a mistake. She should still be there, in my opinion. Why did they kill her? She was amazing. In an interview with The Daily Star, she stated.
In response to requests for her return, Val might appear on screen beside her late husband Eric once more as a ghost.
The scenes between Eric and Val might be much calmer than the other action-packed sequences because the rest of the community is involved in different plot lines.
Faith will be fine, Val could promise her husband, and she won’t be in any pain or on her own ever.
As they converse, Eric might express to his former partner how much he misses her and how, in light of the impending loss of another person he loves, he has been thinking about her more than ever.
It wouldn’t be Val’s first time making a ghostly appearance; she did so on Christmas Day of 2017 as a part of Robert Sugden’s (Ryan Hawley) plot.
Charlie spoke candidly about her comeback to the program in 2017: “I enjoyed being back, but it felt a mixture of everything.
“When I arrived at the village outpost’s canteen first thing in the morning, I saw everyone I used to work with every day.
All the folks you had forgotten how much you adored, including the props teams, sparks, camera, and sound crews. I was therefore little moved, and it was lovely because everyone was hugging me and I felt incredibly pampered.
She continued, describing how it felt to return: “My overwhelming feeling of the day was how much I adore and how much I miss it.
Charlie told Digital Spy, “It was wonderful to be there, it was really wonderful, and it was a treat and a great luxury to get the chance to go back and meet folks one more time after her passing.”
This time, I actually had the opportunity to bid farewell without actually going.
Less than a year later, in 2018, the actress made a suggestion that she would eventually make another return to the show.
“I kind of assumed my dance was done at the end of Emmerdale, but no, that tiny bit came back when I was on Emmerdale last Christmas,” Charlie said.
I pondered, “You know what? I enjoy this. I would be there right away if you pitched the tale, she told HELLO! Magazine.
The former soap opera star also discussed her motivations for wanting to put the role in the past in 2015.
Chuck remarked: “It took me many, many, many months of argument and consideration to conclude that perhaps I was simply ill.
“Or maybe I just needed to gather myself, but I believe I realized I had to leave—not because I detest it, but rather because I need to try to reclaim some of my life.
“For 12 years, I’ve kept a suitcase at the foot of my bed. I’ve enjoyed being with Eric, and I believe the two of them make a wonderful couple “As she lauded her co-star, she continued.
