Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) has left the Emmerdale village for a new life in Canada.

Her departure from the Dales is to coincide with Michelle’s maternity leave, following the news she’s given birth to a baby girl with her producer wife, Kate Brooks.

As Michelle and Kate grow their little family, Vanessa was hoping to do the same with her girlfriend, Suzy (Martelle Edinborough).

Sadly, last night’s episode put their relationship in jeopardy.

When Vanessa tracked Suzy down at Take A Vow she found her with Leyla (Roxy Shahidi), both looking worse for wear and surrounded by tissues and cake. Vanessa jumped to the conclusion that they’d been on an all-night drugs bender. 

‘Noses running, munchies on the go after being out all night…’ Vanessa was absolutely furious, not wanting to hear the actual explanation for the scene she witnessed – that Suzy was consoling Leyla over her divorce from Liam (Jonny McPherson) and Suzy had actually been up all-night working.

The lack of trust between them saw Suzy end her relationship with Vanessa which meant tonight, she was not in the mood for a celebratory goodbye party.

After a firm talking to from Mary (Louise Jameson), Suzy spent the day debating whether to move to Canada with Vanessa – and she chose not to.

As Vanessa and Johnny hopped into a taxi, they stopped for a brief moment so Vanessa and Suzy could agree that time apart may actually benefit their relationship in the long run.

So, it’s goodbye to Vanessa, but with Michelle only heading on maternity leave, we’ll no doubt being seeing her again.
