Her return promises to throw the Dingle family into chaos.
Sally Dexter will be reprising her role as Chas and Cain's mother Faith next month.
After revealing to her son that she drove Nate’s mother away when she was pregnant, and kept the secret from him, Faith was last seen in October 2019 when she left the Village in a taxi.
With Cain’s ultimatum ringing in her ears, if she didn’t leave Emmerdale he would. Faith emotionally accepted her fate and was exiled by the tight knit Dingle clan.
In upcoming scenes, we'll see Moria bump into Faith. Dressed as an undertaker, Faith is desperate to get away from Moira’s questions, as she's in the process of stealing a hearse.
After their chance meeting, Faith later turns up in the village to ask Moira if she thinks Cain could ever forgive her.
Speaking about returning to Emmerdale to play Faith, Sally Dexter said "It’s wonderful to be back in Emmerdale again. From the first day I felt like I was getting a big warm family hug from everyone, it’s a really special show!"
To which the soap's Producer, Sophie Roper added "I’m delighted to see the return of much-loved character Faith Dingle to the village. A character bursting with fun, Faith’s certainly set to ruffle a few feathers and will test the Dingle’s loyalties like never before."
"We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Sally back to Emmerdale, an actor exuding vibrant charm."
Emmerdale continues Monday - Friday at 7pm and Thursdays at 8pm on ITV
