    At the moment they are running an addiction plot, but giving it an interesting twist. The addict, Rhona, is using her university friend Vanessa to get drugs. Although Rhona is married, it's pretty clear that Vanessa has feelings for her, and Rhona is picking up on that and starting to use those feelings to manipulate poor Vanessa. It's been very well acted so far, with Rhona's drug hell being quite harrowing to watch, but Vanessa's subtle looks of joy and hope when she thinks Rhona is getting better are as enjoyable to me. When I first heard about the plot, I was worried it might come across as a 'predatory lesbian' using her friend's addiction to get some lovin', but I should have given Emmerdale more respect.

    Vanessa is played by out actress Michelle Hardwick. Here's an interview with her:
