Tracy recalls Faith saving her life in emotional Emmerdale scenes

It was a poignant episode for Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) in tonight’s episode as she excitedly planned her final trip to the seaside, only for a sudden deterioration in her health to put her plans in the balance.

As well as this, she had some beautiful and sad scenes with Brenda (Lesley Dunlop) as she recalled her aunt’s death and how it had been ‘cruel.’ She insisted that ‘When I go I want to still be me.’

The episode had been full of reminders of how important Faith had been to many people in different ways, and Tracy told her that she had literally saved her life.

When Tracy had been at her lowest point, suffering from post natal depression after Frankie’s birth, it was Faith who found her sitting under her dad’s tree. Faith brought a picnic and talked to Tracy, convincing her that she was ill and needed help.
