IT'S the end of another era for Bernice Blackstock as she makes her way out of the Dales in upcoming scenes.
But before she can, the Emmerdale favourite manages to cause one last stir, risking prison, and her loved ones have had enough.
Soap icon Samantha Giles was tipped to exit the ITV show earlier this year and her exit scenes seem to have officially begun.
The Maidstone star first showed up in the eponymous village in 1998, after a short stint in Coronation Street, and left four years later.
As mentioned above, Samantha has been an on-off resident of the Dales and reappeared in the program in 2004 and 2012, before making a more permanent return in 2021.
But how will her fourth exit from the show play out on our screens?
