Samantha Giles confirms that Bernice’s wig has been removed

Emmerdale actress Samantha Giles has revealed that Bernice’s wig has been removed.

Bernice recently returned to the soap, and viewers immediately noticed something else about the character – she’s wearing a wig.

Shortly after her return, Samantha explained that the reason for wearing a wig was due to Covid restrictions, that she had to do her own hair.

That morning she said, “The thing is, my own hair is very, very thick and wiry and it’s not at all like Bernice’s hairdresser and has to look very coiffed and I can’t do anything with my hair.

“I can’t make it look like that.”

However, Samantha has revealed that she no longer has to wear the wig.

On The God Cast podcast, she said, “The wig has been doing more advertising than anything right now.

“I got the last message from above, as we call it: ‘Just do what it takes, just take her wig off,’ so I can get my hair blown twice a week.

Do whatever it takes, just take her wig off.

“It’s going to be one of two people to do it, so it’s still very COVID safe.”
