Charity's back...and behind the bar!

Will being landlady provide Charity with the stability the mum of three needs or will her newfound status go straight to her head?

In Thursday's (10 March) episodes, viewers will see Charity Dingle’s dramatic return to the village after a spell in prison. But, much to the Villagers' surprise, she will announce herself as the new joint owner of the Woolpack.

Speaking ahead of Charity's debut, Emma Atkins said: It is just brilliant to see her behind the bar. Something very different.

She will be under the watchful eye of Chas but both characters can give as good as they get so it will be a colourful dynamic.”

My pint pulling can literally floor my workmates, by being brilliant one minute and horrendous the next.

Emma Atkins, on pulling pints as Charity

“My pint pulling can literally floor my workmates, by being brilliant one minute and horrendous the next.

It's a continuity extravaganza as I'm learning the ropes from the props guys and Lucy (Pargeter) of course.

It's a skill in itself having to say the lines, work the props and try and give a fluid performance without having an expression of dread wondering if the pint will have a good head of 'froth' on it!”

“The bar is a bit like a stage for Charity where she can show off and deliver her explosive one liners to the locals.

Her behaviour will no doubt fluctuate from good to bad to ugly, with a decent dose of naughtiness thrown in.”

As Charity makes her grand entrance, recap on the mayhem she left behind and the exes she's soon to be reunited with:
