Emmerdale's Kerry Wyatt has been away from the village for a long time, and it's now been revealed she has been concealing her whereabouts.

She's keeping a big secret from her loved ones, but also the family she is working for as a house cleaner - with the character caught up in a "scary" new storyline.

Kerry hasn't told the family her true identity or anything about her loved ones, with actress Laura Norton who plays her confirming this is because she is trying to protect her daughter Amy.

But in doing so, she has also lied to Amy and the others about where she really is, and what she has been doing over the past year - trying to keep them well out of what she is involved in.

Next week, episodes reveal that Kerry works for the father of recent newcomer Chloe as more about the character's story is revealed - after her recent meet-ups with Sarah Sugden.

Speaking to The Mirror and other press, actress Laura, who welcomed her baby son earlier this year, teased all on her "dark" return storyline - and revealed why she has remained quiet on everything following her exit late last year.

Amy Wyatt has no idea where her mum is

She said of her link to Chloe's villainous dad: "It's just a professional relationship and he's very, very scary.

"Kerry has been made aware because he trusts her being in the house, and she has gotten very close to his daughter, but she knows exactly what he's been involved with.

"It's incredibly dark and something she doesn't want any part of. It is really dark and scary stuff."

As Charity Dingle rocks up to the house in question, Kerry is left fearing the truth about her real identity is going to be exposed - and it could land her in danger.

Laura said: "She took this job, and she’s kept her life and her close friends and family a secret.

"She doesn’t want this dangerous man to know anything about her life just in case. So, somebody she knows turning up there is the last thing she needed and wanted.

"Amy doesn’t know where she is. And she’s not doing that to be sly, but to protect Amy. But obviously it could all go wrong if Charity says anything, and Amy tries to find her. It’s a scary moment for Kerry.

"To be living and working in his house, it's all a bit close for her."

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode on Thursdays at 8pm.
