Michelle Hardwick has promised "twists and turns" for 'Emmerdale's Vanessa Woodfield.
The 39-year-old actress' alter ego is pregnant but unsure who the father is after sleeping with Adam Barton (Adam Thomas) while on a break from toyboy lover Kirin Kotecha (Adam Fielding) and the blonde beauty says the storyline isn't going to be "straightforward".
She told OK! magazine: "Now she's pregnant and it literally is who's the daddy.
"I might [know who the father is]. It's going to be a bit up in the air but there are a few more twists and turns along the way. It's not as straightforward as it could be, which is great."
Michelle initially expected Vanessa's relationship with Kirin - who is 22 years younger than her character - to be a brief fling but she is delighted with the reaction to the coupling from viewers.
She said: "Initially when they said Vanessa would be going out with a 17 year old, I thought it would only last about three episodes. But it hasn't!
"The viewers really enjoy it and they're invested in them as a couple, which is fantastic.
"But then she had the breast cancer scare - he ran off because he was so young, but they got back together. She's got the all clear now but during that time she slept with Adam Barton."
