Queen of Soaps Sharon keeps us up to date with all the latest soap gossip

Sharon says: I'm a scriptwriter for Emmerdale - a job I got after over 20 years of reporting on the soaps. I started as a showbiz journalist, columnist and TV critic for Fleet St before joining This Morning in 2003.

I then trained in scriptwriting and joined the EastEnders writing team in 2011 before moving to Emmerdale last summer.

Books include Tabloid Girl - a novel based on my time as a tabloid journalist - and The Naughty Girl’s Guide to Life - a spoof self help book co-written with Tara Palmer-Tompkinson. I also edited The Power of Positive Drinking by Cleo Rocos and I'm afraid that little book project is why Phil and Holly ended up loving tequila.
