Speaking with her son Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano), explaining her exit, Moira said: “These past few days, the things I’ve said and done – that’s not me.
“I saw Nate, Cara and Cain in the pub with the family and Cara brought up some things I’d told her – spiteful lies.
“I don’t recognise myself Matty, I can’t be this bitter and desperate anymore. Cain doesn’t want me and I have to accept that.
“And I promised you that I’d pull myself out of this and to do that I need to get away. Away from him and away from all of it,” but given time to reflect, will she think otherwise?
Emmerdale continues Monday at 7pm on ITV.
