BERNICE BLACKSTOCK’s heading back to Emmerdale – just as her ex Liam’s love life is back on track.
Bernice, played by Samantha Giles, was one of the soap’s most popular characters when she was last in the Dales two years ago.
She had dumped GP Liam the night before their wedding and fled to Australia to look after her ex-husband Charlie, who had been in an accident.
I’m sure Liam will be furious when Bernice reappears this summer, especially as he’s now smitten with Leyla.
Samantha said: “As an actress, leaving a role that you love is always a hard decision.
“I’d been lucky to work so consistently for so long which is rare in our business.

“I’m a big believer in fate so when Emmerdale offered me a chance to return I took it as a sign that it was meant to be.
“I’m delighted to return to play out Bernice’s future storylines.
“She certainly arrives back with a bang – that’s all I’m allowed to say!”
