Emmerdale actress Fiona Wade has revealed she's secretly dating someone, whom she describes as a "wonderful guy".

The star, who appears on the ITV soap as Priya Sharma, opened up about her love life and plans for the future in a new interview, explaining she's dating someone in the entertainment industry.

"It's fairly new, we've been together since last year and he's a very wonderful guy, but I've kept it quiet. I just wanted time to get to know him – he's very special."

Her on-screen character is certainly having a turbulent life at the moment, bringing up daughter Amba on her own as she tries to balance her demanding job.

However, Fiona herself said that she wants to start a family herself in the not too distant future, explaining: "I would definitely like a family of my own one day."

"I like children and I've got lots of nieces and nephews who are gorgeous. It's something I haven't thought about massively – I've been very career-orientated so far – but maybe I should!

"The little girl who plays Amba is adorable. She's so good. She comes into work with a big smile and she knows what to do – she's amazing. Hopefully I'll be blessed myself one day."

Emmerdale airs on ITV.
