Charity (played by Emma Atkins) has been struggling to cope without Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick) by her side over the last few months on Emmerdale. Not only has she had to look after her step-son Johnny (Luca Hepworth), she has had to fight his father Kirin Kotecha (Rish Shah) for the right to adopt the youngster.
