Emmerdale star Anna Nightingale has opened up about returning to filming after production was halted due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Andrea Tate actress has revealed that she is really looking forward to getting back to work and seeing everyone again. "I've spent the last year with most of the cast so it's been a big change not seeing everyone," she said.

"We've had lots of updates from production and everyone's working hard to get the show in the best place possible for when we return."

She revealed that she's been keeping in touch with some of her cast mates during the lockdown, specifically her on-screen husband. "Alex [Lincoln] – who plays Jamie is a good friend – he's like a brother so I check in with him at least once a week.

"Social media is fab because you can see what people are up to and makes you realise we're all in this together.

"I'm really looking forward to going back, I love working on the show and I think it'll feel even more tight knit than before."

Anna, who is currently experiencing lockdown with her partner and three-year-old daughter, revealed she is making the most of her time away from work to reconnect with her family.

"We had very busy lives and agreed to take the time to enjoy our family to the full every day.

"These are unprecedented times and the knowing so many people are suffering sits with you but we get through as a family and expressing our care and gratitude for one another."

Emmerdale currently airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm on ITV.
