Emma's final scenes were confirmed in March when she walked out on Lola, unable to cope with her daughter's terminal illness.

When Lola later died in May, Emma made a brief appearance at her funeral.

Reports later suggested that Patsy would be heading back to the show again, and Emma's return date has now been officially confirmed for Monday, September 11.
