Jessie Elland heaps praise on Emmerdale after leaving her role of Chloe Harris on Boxing Day.

Jessie Elland has said that she feels "privileged" to have had a two-year stint playing Chloe Harris on Emmerdale.

The character - sister of Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson) - made her debut in the summer of 2021 but bowed out of the Dales on Boxing Day.

In shock scenes, Charity (Emma Atkins) murdered Chloe's evil dad Harry (Robert Black) in order to save the life of Mackenzie (Lawrence Robb) - and Chloe agreed to keep quiet about the events if Mack gave her his blessing to leave the village with their son Reuben.

Speaking after the episode aired, Elland said: "I've had the best two years of my life playing Chloe and being a part of Emmerdale.

"Over those two years it never got any less surreal to walk through the stage door at studios or to be stood outside the Woolpack at the village.

"I feel so privileged to have been given this opportunity and to have been trusted with such wonderful storylines.

"I really got to tick off the soap bingo card; giving birth, discovering new family members, a big stunt, a soapy slap, and even a classic back of the taxi exit!

"All while working with, and learning from, incredibly talented people that I'd grown up watching on screen.

"I'm sure you've heard other cast members say that being in Emmerdale is like being part of a big family but it couldn't be more true.

"The cast and crew of Emmerdale are some of the nicest people I've ever been lucky enough to meet, and they all made Emmerdale feel like a second home to me."

Emmerdale continues weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
