Emmerdaleactor Joe-Warren Plant has opened up on the tragic death of his mum, aged just 47.
The star, who plays Jacob Gallagher in the popular TV soap, said she died following liver complications in November last year. He took a six month break from Emmerdale earlier this year. Speaking to the Mirror, he said: "Mum was so supportive and such an amazing person. I miss her a lot."
The 21 year old star joined Emmerdale when he was just eight years old, so has spent more than half his life on the show. His parents, Warren and Steph, encouraged him to sign up at a young age.
He told the Mirror: "I can’t remember what it was like before. This is home for me. I owe everything to Mum and Dad. They encouraged me to join a theatre school near our home in Blackpool when I was four to boost my confidence.
In Monday's episode of the show, viewers struggled as they watched distressing scenes as Jacob Gallagher suffered from a severe nut allergy. But in a terrifying storyline twist, Victoria Barton was accidentally to blame after making a near-fatal mistake in the restaurant.
The chef was doing her best to cook and create a satisfying spread for Gaby's potential new clients, but couldn't keep up with the increasing work-load. As a result, she made a rushed sauce for one of the dishes with an ingredient that had nut oil in it.
Jacob then checked if the item was safe to eat, and after getting the go-ahead from Victoria, it wasn't long before he was choking.
