Broken Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) has said her emotional goodbyes to Emmerdale after calling off her wedding to Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) and heading to Australia with her daughter Dee Dee.

It was recently confirmed that Bernice would depart the village and it’s an unhappy ending for the popular character as she has been forced to sacrifice the future with the man she loves in order to put her teenage daughter first.

As Bernice enjoyed a hen night ahead of her big day with Liam, Dee Dee received a devastating call informing her that her da had been badly injured in a car crash and was in intensive care. Dee Dee resented Bernice for making her be here for the wedding when her dad could be dying abroad and Bernice was shaken when her daughter pointed out that she had never put her first and it had always been her dad who had brought her up.

As Dee Dee took a swipe saying this probably wouldn’t be Bernice’s last wedding anyway, Bernice got a wake up call and decided she needed to be by Dee Dee’s side right now. But Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) warned her that she couldn’t go into this half measures – being with Dee Dee in Australia could well be more permanent than she realises.

Bernice’s mind was made up and she broke the news to a gutted Liam that the wedding was off but he understood, holding onto the fact that she would come back and they could pick up where they left off.

However, as Bernice handed him back the precious locket he had gifted her and told him they never know what the future holds, there was a distinct impression that it was over for good as she got into the taxi and sobbed, knowing she was leaving her love behind.

These scenes are the last to feature Samantha in the soap as Bernice after she announced her departure several weeks ago.
