Emmerdale said goodbye to another long standing character tonight as Fiona Wade bowed out of her role as Priya Sharma.
Priya first hit our screens in 2009, but is now leaving the village to take up a job in London, leaving dad Rishi (Bhasker Patel) heartbroken.
In tonight’s episode, Priya’s friends and family threw her a leaving party, but she was disappointed to find that her dad had chosen not to attend.
Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) explained that he had become tearful at the thought of losing both his daughter and granddaughter and had chosen to stay at home.
Priya then left her party to pay him a visit and assure him that London wasn’t a million miles away.
He confessed that he felt as though she didn’t need him anymore, which Priya was quick to correct.
He seemed somewhat mollified when she pointed out that he could visit, and if that got too much then she and Amba would come and visit him.
The episode ended with an emotional scene that saw Priya and Amba bid their family farewell, before driving off to begin their new adventure.
Is this the last we’ll ever see of Priya? We’ll have to wait and see…
