Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) was overcome with relief when Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) revealed her cancer hadn’t returned in Emmerdale.
After a collapse, Faith spent weeks terrified her cancer had come back and failed to tell Cain (Jeff Hordley) and Chas (Lucy Pargeter) about her worries.
However, after a struggling Sarah (Katie Hill) discovered the news, it wasn’t long until Cain and Chas learnt their mum was facing a horrific ordeal.
Following Manpreet’s news, she also told Faith that the reason for her collapse and pain is down to another diagnosis – rheumatoid arthritis.
Since then, Faith has slowly come to terms with her new diagnosis, but often faces pain if she pushes herself too far.
Most recently, she set off to find a missing Tracy (Amy Walsh), who was experience a PND breakdown.
Faith found the new-mum in a field and found it difficult to wade through the long grass to get to a vacant and troubled Tracy.
Coming up, Faith starts self-medicating with alcohol to cope with the pain of her arthritis.
But where could this lead?
If Faith doesn’t tell anyone about her self-medicating, could this slowly spiral into an alcoholism storyline?
