When is Tracy Metcalfe returning? TBC

As actress Amy Walsh went on maternity leave to spend time with her baby who she welcomed over Christmas with partner Toby-Alexander Smith (aka EastEnders' Gray Atkins), Tracy was written out of Emmerdale in an emotional exit storyline.

After splitting from Nate Robinson over his secret one-night-stand, Tracy seemed to be thawing towards him when she discovered that she had been offered a job in Nottingham to help other women suffering from post-natal depression as she had.

After an emotional farewell to Nate and sister Vanessa, Tracy and baby Frankie departed the village for a new life.

However, Tracy will return once Amy Walsh's maternity leave from the soap ends.


Will Tracy reconcile with Nate? And how will she feel if Nate has pursued a lustful new relationship in her absence?
