Denise Black's dramatic Emmerdale return
Denise Black is making a dramatic return to 'Emmerdale' - two years after she last appeared in the soap.
Denise - who plays Joanie Wright - will return next month at the centre of a storyline that will rock the village.
Joanie was last seen in the Dales in November 2013 when she was granted custody of her adoptive grandchild Kyle - the biological son of Amy Wyatt (Chelsea Halfpenny) and Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
On her return, Denise said: "I am very excited to be coming back to 'Emmerdale'. It's a lovely show to work on and I'm well set for Joanie's revival. I bet she has learned a thing or two since we last saw her. Is she still a single grandma? Has she changed? How is Kyle? I can't wait to find out."
Denise's storyline will reveal Joanie has fallen on hard times and has been living in temporary housing. Joanie ends up calling on Cain to lend her the money for a deposit on a flat for her and Kyle. She tries to blackmail him, knowing he doesn't want anything to do with his real son.
However, after getting mugged and losing the much-needed money, Joanie turns up at the Dingle family doorstep, in hope they will take pity on her and Kyle.
Denise will be seen back on TV screens from June.
