Could Val return to Emmerdale? Eric thinks it’s possible

No doubt most Emmerdale fans felt the loss of Val Pollard when she excited the poplar UK soap. The actress was killed off in a tragic accident, but Chris Chittell who plays her husband Eric in the series thinks that Val could return.

During a recent interview with Charlie Hardwick and Chris Chittell, the actor suggested that there is a huge possibility that fans haven’t seen the last of Val because viewers never actually saw Val’s corpse, reports Metro UK.

In the interview, which you can view by heading to Digital Spy, Chittell had this to say about the possible return of Val… “There’s a huge possibility! When Valerie was taken out of the maze of mirrors, her face was covered – we did not see her. She was taken to the mortuary and Eric went to identify her – but we don’t know if Pollard actually saw her body! It’s true!”

However, it could be a simple case of wishful thinking on Chittell’s part, as Charlie Hardwick came back with… “It’s news to me. For the time being though, she’s gone.”

Of course it’s not impossible to bring back a character from the dead, as Emmerdale basically brought back Ross Barton from the dead, and even Kathy Beale has returned to EastEnders after being dead for ages. So Val returning is always possible however far-fetched, especially when you consider they were planning to fake Val’s death in the first place.

Would you like to see Val come back?
