Coronation Street Spoilers – Mardell’s Take On Emma Brooker’s Storyline
Speaking up about her new storyline, Mardell, who plays Emma, said, “She’s had enough by this point. Emma doesn’t have a good relationship with her mum, so all the close relationships she’s made on the Street were really important to her.
“There’s a fresh new one with Steve, but because the trust has just gone with everyone, she thinks, ‘Right I’ve had enough. I need to get out of here. It’s too much for me. She needs someone to show her that there are more reasons for her to stay, but she just can’t see them.”
In terms of the people who comes after her alter ego, Mardell also revealed that “It’s a bit of a shock that Tracy and Amy are the ones who go to the station platform. But Tracy is looking out for her daughter, I don’t think she’s looking forward to taking Emma on!”
