Emmerdale’s Rebecca actress Emily Head speaks out on possible ITV soap return

Emmerdale's Rebecca White actress Emily Head has spoke out about a possible ITV soap return.

Emily, 33, first made her debut as Rebecca in 2016 and her character left the village in 2018 with on-screen love interest Ross Barton, played by Michael Parr.

It comes after Emmerdale fans were left hoping that Ross will make a return after he was mentioned on the ITV soap during an episode on 27 December.

Talking about a possible return to the village for Rebecca, Emily admitted that she would be open to it if it fitted in with her plans and if her character was needed for a storyline.

She told Express: "I had such a great time there and building the character and I felt ready to move on when I did. I like the idea of Rebecca living her best life in Liverpool with Ross and the baby Seb. I like the idea of leaving them there and having a brilliant time together.

"If there was ever a particular reason why she needed to come back to the village and if it fitted in with what I wanted to do that year, then sure, why not?"

It comes after Emmerdale fans were left excited during the Christmas period as Ross was mentioned on the ITV soap during an episode on 27 December.

During the instalment, Charity Dingle mentioned Ross' name as she revealed that he was dropping their son Moses off in the village although he was never seen on-screen.

Speaking to new love interest Mackenzie Boyd, Charity said: "I'll see you later, yeah? Ross is dropping Moses off… so we need to do the introductions."

Soap watchers went wild over the mention of Ross, played by Michael Parr, as the character was last seen in the village in 2018.

During Ross' time on the ITV soap, he was part of several hard-hitting storylines including a harrowing acid attack and he left the village four years ago with Rebecca.

Taking to Twitter after Ross' mention, soap fans begged for the character's return.

One person said: "'Ross is bringing Moses back' please someone tell Ross he is welcome to stay!!! #Emmerdale."

A different account put: "Be great to see Ross back on #Emmerdale."

Another follower commented: "I wish Ross would come back to #Emmerdale."
