Emmerdale star Sally Dexter had fans jumping with excitement when she appeared back on screens earlier this year.

The actress returned to the ITV soap as the iconic Faith Dingle in February, amusing viewers by rocking up in the Dales in full mourner attire while attempting to steal a horse.

Faith previously left the series in October 2019, with she was exiled by her son Cain (Jeff Hordley) for hiding the identity of his secret love child Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter), who had been having an affair with his wife Moira (Natalie J Robb).

While her character kept a big secret from her son on the serial drama, it seems Sally too likes to keep the details of her real personal life on the down low.

The 61-year-old doesn't appear to have Instagram or Twitter and has also been pretty quiet about her love life.

Sally has previously spoken of her mysterious long-term partner, who she was living with in London when she joined Emmerdale in 2017.

The role of Cain and Chas Dingle's mother Faith was previously portrayed by actress Gillian Jephcott.

Sally, who is now located in Leeds, also recently opened up about an exciting new addition to her family.

During an appearance on ITV daytime show Lorraine back in June, the renowned thespian confirmed to host Lorraine Kelly that she had adopted an adorable puppy named Button and held him up to be seen by viewers.

"This is Button, Lorraine," Sally said.

"We've just gone to mush, it's fantastic, we have just gone completely puppy brained over here.

"It's extraordinary."

Before joining Emmerdale, Sally appeared in TV shows including Father Brown, A Touch of Frost and Poldark.

She has also starred in episodes of The Bill, Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Holby City.

Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV.
