Emmerdale star Emma Atkins has revealed that her screen daughter Debbie Dingle will be a changed girl when she returns to the village later this year.

The actress, who plays Charity Tate on the ITV1 show, told Holy Soap that there will be a hint of "mystery" surrounding the character in her comeback scenes.

In March, viewers saw Debbie leave the village for a new life in Jersey after the constant rows between her parents became too much to handle. However, her portrayer Charley Webb recently returned to the role following a period of maternity leave.

Speaking of Debbie's reappearance, Atkins explained: "She's a lot more sophisticated when she returns, a lot more subtle. I think Charity and Cain are a bit surprised, thinking 'Who's this new girl that's walked in the door? Why have you come back? What are you here for?' There's a bit of mystery and intrigue there."

Asked what could be behind the mystery, she replied: "I have absolutely no idea what it is, but I can sense it from the way she's playing it. I think we're in for a good year."

Webb welcomed the arrival of her first child Buster in April. Buster's father is the actress's boyfriend and co-star Matthew Wolfenden (David Metcalfe).
