Paula Tilbrook will leave Emmerdale this year after playing Betty Eagleton for 21 years, it has been announced.
Betty first appeared in April 1994 for just three episodes when she ordered a sweet sherry in the Woolpack. Being an old friend of Seth Armstrong, she soon put down roots in the Village and even fell prey to wheeler dealer Eric Pollard.
