“Yes, I am wearing a wig.”

“I actually had a lot of flak about it,” she continued.

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

“I can’t make it look like that.”

What happened next?

Samantha returned to soap after a two-year absence.

And her character – Bernice Blackstock – was sure to come back into fashion.

She confronted Kim Tait, who pointed a shotgun at her.

She then told her that she wanted to tear Gabby away from her. But does she bite off more than she can chew when she picks up Kim?

The confrontation confirmed Samantha’s claim that she would return “with a bang”.

How did the fans react to Bernice’s wig?

As explosive as Bernice’s return to Home Farm was, it was the wig that made the headlines.

Viewers went to Twitter to comment on the “syrup”.

One said, “Emmerdale: Bernice … wig?”

A third commented, “I hope ITV is willing to spend some money digitally removing Bernice’s terrible wig from all future episodes.”
