Madge is back!

Madge Bishop has been laying low for a while since she faked her own death in Erinsborough five years ago, but now she’s assumed a false name and has moved into Emmerdale, a sleepy village in the Yorkshire Moors…

Madge is back!

It’s been five years since gravelly voiced temptress Madge Bishop popped her clogs down under, but she’s miraculously turned up again in the Northern hemisphere, in a small Yorkshire Village called Emmerdale.

It seems that Madge faked her death in Ramsay Street to exact her revenge on hubby Harold, who put her through years of worry after he disappeared off a cliff top in 1991. For the past few years she has been living happily in Ireland, but now she’s decided to track down her long lost sister Edna, who lives in Emmerdale.

From Emmerdale, Madge (or “Lily” as she now likes to be called) will be able to watch Harold on TV every day (or twice a day if she likes) as he pines after his lost love and continues on in his usual wobbly way.

Madge will not be the first person to arrive in Emmerdale after acting in a soap. Indeed, it seems that the sleepy village of Emmerdale is a favourite retreat amongst ex soap characters wanting to escape the limelight for a while. Lee Hunter from Hollyoaks has recently moved into the village, and Maureen Holdsworth from Coronation Street also came to stay for a while.

And don't forget everyone's favourite barmaid Marilyn from Home and Away, now quietly going about her business in Emmerdale under the name of Louise.

You will be able to see Madge, sorry, “Lily” on your screens from December. Let’s just hope that they don’t get ITV in Australia – Harold will be most confused.
