Leah Bracknell was one the best Emmerdale actresses, Zoe Tate is a character that has been hard to replace for many years after her departure, I was just thinking about having Zoe, Joseph and Jean returning to the Dales and have the Tates dominate once more.

I'm praying for her, she's a lovely woman.

I dont know who she is (never caught Emmerdale) but sad that someone so young in her 50s is terminally ill

I wish her and anyone else in her situation with trying different treatments
