Alicia (played by Natalie Anderson) featured in several high profile storylines during her time in the Emmerdale village before departing five years ago. When she was first introduced on the ITV soap in 2010, her relationship with Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) was on rocky territory as the latter had an affair with her sister’s husband and gave birth to Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) as a result. The teenager’s auntie got her revenge when she later started a romance with her sibling’s former lover, David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden). They later married and got divorced once Alicia had left the Dales but could she make a return to take one Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) away from her sister?

Their latest fraction came when teenager Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) tried to meddle with their relationship, given how the doctor was supposed to be marrying her mother Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) late last year.
However, the pair have since salvaged their relationship but have become distracted by the youngster’s wayward behaviour.
With blow after blow making their romance testing, to say the least, the general practitioner could start looking to someone else for comfort.
Though he might find company away from the village and unbeknown to him, he could have an affair with Alicia.
