Emma Atkins Interview with The Sun
The last book I read was [US comic] Amy Schumer’s The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo. It’s funny, explicit and very real. She doesn’t hold back and I admire that, coming from a rather introverted soul. She has a shyness that I find appealing.
My favourite tipple is gin – M&S have the most amazing selection. I can stand there for hours admiring the bottles. Daffy’s gin is divine. I mix it with tonic, fresh mint, lime and pomegranate.
I stay fit by doing step aerobics in my dining room. I look absolutely ridiculous, but feel a huge sense of achievement after 40 minutes of sweating like crazy and managing not to trip up in that time. I use weights with it. The workout is on YouTube – the Reebok one from the early 90s [below] – and it’s pretty damn good.
I have a load of favourite websites, but Zara online is great for clothes for me and my son Albert. One stop shop.
I got a bit addicted to Face Swap and MSQRD [which lets you record video selfie animations] for a while with Albert. We’d become tigers and polar bears, and I was posting it on Instagram inventing characters. My friends thought I’d gone mad! I like Buddhify, the mindfulness app too.
New York is the place that means the most to me. I’ve been there several times alone, yet I’ve never felt less alone in my life. It’s such a vibrant mix of culture. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe the city. It casts a spell on me and there’s more to discover every time I go. The suburb of Williamsburg is a really cool place to visit.
The person I’d most like to meet is Audrey Hepburn, if she was still alive. There is, and was, nobody like her on the planet. I’d go as far to say she was an angel on Earth. Her acting was mesmerising, and her selflessness towards helping others was on another scale.
My favourite fragrances are Tom Ford Noir de Noir and Acqua di Parma. I like to double up. I’ve never had so many compliments about the way I smell in my entire life. It’s so lovely to be told how good you smell, and it’s a pretty killer combo – warm and earthy.

Emmerdale star Emma Atkins confirms autumn trial drama for Charity Dingle and DI Bails
DigitalSpy.com | 31 Jul 2018
Emmerdale star Emma Atkins has confirmed autumn trial drama for her character Charity Dingle and DI Bails.
Charity took centre stage in some of her most emotional scenes ever earlier this year, as she confided in her girlfriend Vanessa Woodfield that Bails groomed and raped her when she was a teenager.
When Charity later decided it was time for Bails to face the consequences of his crimes, she tracked down their long-lost son Ryan Stocks – played by show newcomer James Moore.
Although Charity’s focus has since shifted to bonding with Ryan, Emma has previously hinted that the Bails drama hasn’t been forgotten– and has now confirmed that he will definitely be standing trial later this year.
“There are many times when she thinks, ‘Do you know what, I’m just going to pull out’,” Emma told TV Times.
“Charity wonders how on earth a jury would ever believe her over Bails. Also, raking up the past means she has to keep reliving it, and there are images in her head she would rather forget.”
Thankfully, a supportive Vanessa will be by Charity’s side as she faces one of the toughest challenges of her life. But will Charity stick to her guns in court? Or will she crumble under the pressure of it all?
