Emmerdale‘s Michelle Hardwick has spoken about her character’s pregnancy.
Hardwick, who plays Vanessa on the ITV soap, said that she’d like to see on-screen boyfriend Kirin Kotecha revealed as the father.
Next week on the soap, Vanessa takes a pregnancy test that comes out positive. She panics as she has no idea whether the father is Adam Barton or Kotecha.
Speaking to Digital Spy at the British LGBT Awards, Hardwick said: “I would prefer for [the child] to be Kirin’s as they are in love, and there’s interesting mileage in that.
“The audience didn’t think their romance would last as long as it has, and it’s been an interesting twist has as they really do love each other.”
Discussing the pregnancy storyline, the actress added: “Poor Vanessa. Things were going so well for her and then she had that little one night stand with Adam Barton.
“In her defence, she was separated from Kirin at the time and Adam thought he was separated from Victoria, so technically they were single for that one night.
“She is now pregnant and it’s going to be up in the air who the daddy is. She has no idea – it could be either one of them.”
Asked whether she’s nervous about Vanessa’s fate following rumours of a big summer stunt ahead for Emmerdale, she replied: “No, it’s just exciting really.
“You’re a jobbing actor so you run with what you’re given. There’s an amazing buzz about it at work at the moment.”
Emmerdale star Hardwick married her partner Rosie Nicholl earlier this month.
