Alice Coulthard is unlikely to forget her time on Emmerdale – especially as she’s taken half her character’s costumes with her.

The actress, who quit the Dales for London after two years playing Maisie Wylde, was sure to take some mementos with her from the show.

“I’ve taken half of her wardrobe with me,” she told Inside Soap magazine.

“She had a really beautiful beaded black bolero that I love. I think Maisie had the best clothes in the show!”

Alice is enjoying more quality time in the capital with her new husband Owen Dyke, who she married last summer.

“I wasn’t sure if it was going to be OK coming back, given that Owen and I haven’t lived together properly for over two years!” she laughed.

“But it’s so lovely. It’s just really nice to be able to wake up together and do things like cooking.”

Alice, who’s currently auditioning for new roles, added: “I’d like to do something quite different to Maisie.

“I sing, but I’m not tempted to do musicals. Of course, having said that, I want to keep my options open.”
