Emmerdale return for Adele Silva

Adele Silva is returning to 'Emmerdale' as gold-digging Kelly Windsor.
The 29-year-old actress - who originally quit the ITV1 soap three years ago - was last seen fleeing the village in tears after being dumped on her wedding day by fiance Jimmy King (Nick Miles) after he discovered she had aborted their unborn child when she was offered a modelling contract.
When she sensationally returns next year, Kelly is intent on revenge after discovering Jimmy is living happily with his wife Nicola De Souza (Nicola Wheeler) and their daughter Angelica.
Adele - who unsuccessfully planned to "make it big" in Hollywood following her departure from 'Emmerdale' in 2007 - said: "I absolutely loved playing Kelly. She's going to be three years older but probably not three years wiser! Whenever Kelly is around she's always caught up in something which makes her a lot of fun.
"The chance to come back was just too good an opportunity to turn down."
Emmerdale producer Gavin Blyth added: "Kelly is as manipulative and destructive as ever. The story will ensure an explosive start to 2011."
