Emmerdale star Daisy Campbell has revealed she and her co-star Liam Fox, who plays Dan Spencer, pitched a heartbreaking storyline on the soap.

The star, who plays teenager Amelia, has been on the soap for 11 years so definitely knows a thing or two about the storylines.

Chatting to the young soap star on Lorraine, Ranvir Singh said: ‘What I find extraordinary is this really quite harrowing part of Amelia’s life is something you went to scriptwriters with.’

Daisy, 18, explained: ‘[Liam and I] had this idea in our head, let’s put a story together and we can pitch it to the producers.

‘They were like, “Yeah, we’ll think about it,” and then I got told about the weight gain storyline and then in January I got told about the pregnancy.’

The actress added that, while she finds the scenes very rewarding, they can also be ‘exhausting’.

Amelia has been at the centre of various storylines recently, including a body image story and, most recently, a shock pregnancy.

The character ended up in hospital after dropping baby Thomas and health checks revealed that she’s pregnant.

She says the news comes as a ‘massive shock’ to Amelia.

‘Because she’s so young, she never expected it to actually happen. I think the main feeling she’s in is the shock of it all,’ she recently told Metro.co.uk.

Amelia makes the decision to go to an abortion clinic and Daisy says ‘Filming [the scenes] was very emotional.

‘I really felt it because I really got into the zone with it. I think going there and doing this alone without anyone is something you wouldn’t want anyone to go through. She’s so young and there’s that constant vulnerability with her age. She’s really on her own.’

Although viewers have seen Amelia struggle with her body image in scenes that will have struck a chord with many, Daisy feels that the scenes which are coming up as a result of Amelia’s pregnancy will show a completely different side to her.

‘I think the stuff that’s coming up will maybe shock a lot of the audience,’ she reveals. ‘I can’t give too much away but I think for Amelia this is her time to really grow up in the show. Obviously she’s been in the show since she was younger so everyone’s always seen her as this kid. I think now she’s really going to change.’
