Emmerdale star reveals major health drama for Liv Flaherty

Liv Flaherty is set to face a huge challenge in 2021 as she is diagnosed with epilepsy after a series of seizures in Emmerdale – and actress Isobel Steele has revealed that her alter-ego will be forced to seriously grow up as she comes to terms with what this will mean for her future.

We have seen Liv experience collapses and fits but she has tried to keep it quiet, with only Paul Ashdale (Reece Dinsdale) knowing the extent of her symptoms.

Liv is recovering from her epilepsy diagnosis and trying to support Vinny (Bradley Johnson), but with Paul making his influence and presence felt how much can Liv intervene?

Isobel shared: ‘I’m really looking forward to seeing how Vinny and Liv’s relationship develops naturally and is put to the test.

‘ I’m also excited to see how Liv deals with her newly diagnosed epilepsy and how this affects her confidence as a young woman.’

Promising major storylines for other young characters such as Gabby Thomas, Leanna Cavanagh and Samson Dingle, producer Jane Hudson enthused: ‘We are so lucky to have such a talented group of young actors who can deliver some of our biggest storylines.

‘It’s exciting to watch characters grow up and see how they develop and how their actions shape their futures.

‘And there is plenty of action coming up which will take the young Emmerdale characters on journeys the audience won’t be expecting.’
