Emmerdale star Amy Walsh and Michelle Hardwick are excited about upcoming developments which will see their characters Tracy and Vanessa on a surprising new storyline.

The duo spoke to What’s on TV at the British Soap Awards and Amy said: “I just moved into their flat, with Carly as well, so there’s some great moments played out in the storyline there…”

Michelle added: “[It’s] three women and a baby and, obviously Vanessa’s now a mum and she’s trying to calm it down a bit, but then this one comes along and there’s tequila shots all round and partying ‘Woop!’ It’s where Vanessa used to be!”

She added: “There’s going to be a lot more Vanessa and Tracy later on in the summer, which I don’t think anyone is going to expect.”

They were looking forward to a fun night at the soap awards, but Michelle said: “She makes me stay out, because I’m a bit of a nana and she’ll be like that later, ‘Come on Michelle, stay out!!'”

Amy said: “I’m up for it tonight!”

And with Emmerdale winning best soap, who knows what time the party ended!
