After last week’s news that four stars are quitting Emmerdale, a fifth exit is now on the cards. Scarlett Archer, who plays Jai Sharma’s love interest Nell Fairfax is reportedly off too.
Although she only started back in March, Nell’s current storyline alongside fellow recovering drug addict Jai is set to come to an end, which will result in Nell departing the Dales. Nell first met Jai at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting and she bares a startling resemblance to his dead girlfriend, Holly Barton.
Viewers were quick to suggest Nell’s intentions weren’t good as they grew closer, and when she started self-harming in order to keep Jai with her alarm bells started ringing. Emmerdale are keeping quiet over how Scarlett will leave the show, but it’s likely to mean more drama and heartbreak for Jai.
