FLO Wilson made her debut in the eponymous village last night as Charles Anderson’s acid-tongued mother Claudette.
Tonight in Emmerdale, the newcomer makes Manpreet Sharma’s life hell but she soon breaks some shocking news.
Manpreet (portrayed by Rebecca Sarker) and Claudette started off on the wrong foot when they first encountered one another in the Main Street Café.
The meeting led to an exchange of harsh words between the two and the village GP left the café fuming when it was clear Claudette was not going to move out of her seat.
Following their run-in, Manpreet found some comfort in the arms of her partner, Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin), and the pair enjoyed a brief moment.
But just as Charles was assuring Manpreet she was the most important woman of his life, his mother Claudette banged on their door looking for him.
Tonight on ITV, after an awkward meeting, Claudette takes every opportunity she can to hurt Manpreet’s feelings, despite Charles demanding a truce between the two.
Claudette can’t stand Manpreet’s complaints from the previous day, when she told Charles that her words were hurtful – but will the vicar stand up for his other half?
This remains to be seen but there’s more trouble ahead for Manpreet.
She and Charles become concerned when Claudette arrives back at Woodbine in later scenes, claiming to have put her back out.
Charles is worried for his mother’s well-being and soon makes her his main priority.
Manpreet is disappointed when Charles decides to stay home and look after Claudette instead of going on a date night.

But is there more to Claudette’s supposed injury than meets the eye?
As mentioned above, Claudette and Manpreet haven’t been able to truly get to know one another.
However, for Charles’ sake and happiness, Manpreet agreed to let their tense meeting go and start afresh, but Claudette seemed more reluctant.
Could she try to push Manpreet out of the picture for Charles?
Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
