Emmerdale star confirms set is haunted and had to stop filming death scene twice
17th October 2022

Emmerdale star Sally Dexter has confirmed that the set of the ITV soap is haunted.

The 62-year-old actress has recently filmed her heartbreaking exit as Faith lost her battle to cancer.

However, it appears that things didn't quite go to plan during the recording of the emotional scenes as an unexpected visitor made an apperance.

Speaking at the Inside Soap Awards, Sally told Daily Star: "When Lucy, who plays Chas, first came in to find me dead, she knocked on the door to open it but couldn’t come in.

"When we were filming that, she knocked on the door once and there was an answering knock, and we were filming this in a house that was meant to be haunted and this happened twice.

"I was dead but I was kind of sinking off into a subconsciousness and when she did that and I heard the answering knock, I wanted to say come in. So we had to stop and start again twice.

"Lucy said 'Did anybody else hear that?' and we all said yes."

Emmerdale viewers were left in tears last week as Faith died in son Cain Dingle's (Jeff Hordley) arms.

The matriarch took her own life after discovering her terminal disease had spread to her brain.

Determined not to lose her faculties, Faith took a number of pills before slipping away in emotional scenes with one viewer declaring their heart was "broken".

Cain, who has had a troubled relationship with Faith, broke down in tears as uttered the words she longed to hear "I love you Mum".

Emmerdale walked away with an incredible collection of new accolades after a bumper year at the Inside Soap Awards on Monday (October 17).

The ITV soap beat out its rivals Coronation Street, EastEnders and Hollyoaks to scoop the most awards at the star-studded ceremony.

But it lost out on one major gong to its BBC counterpart, as Walford-based EastEnders was awarded the Best Soap award overall.

Emmerdale, however, was awarded the Best Actor award for Mark Charnock, who plays Marlon Dingle. His stroke storyline this year also saw him scoop the Best Serial Drama Award at this year’s National Television Awards.

It was a bumper year for the actor, too, as the Inside Soap Awards also saw Marlon’s stroke win the Best Storyline award – with Mark and on-screen wife Zoe Henry (Rhona Goskirk) scooping the Best Romance gong.

Marlon and Rhona finally exchanged vows in a poignant wedding ceremony earlier this year, as Marlon managed to walk for the first time since his stroke to meet his new bride down the aisle.

Meena Jutla star Paige Sandhu, meanwhile, was awarded the trophy for Best Villain after her serial killer storyline in the soap – despite missing out on an NTA last week.

Emmerdale airs weeknights on ITV at 7.30pm
