Emmerdale fans haven't seen the last of Rebecca White following her surprise departure last week.

Rebecca (Emily Head) recently did a runner from the village with her baby son Seb, deciding that the little boy would be better off without his dad Robert Sugden.

At the time, Emmerdale kept tight-lipped over whether we'd see Rebecca again – but it's now been revealed that she'll be part of this year's Christmas episodes.

That's because Rebecca's sister Chrissie (Louise Marwood) starts making some secret plans to sneak Rebecca and Seb back into Home Farm for the festive season.

Chrissie wants all of the White family together for the occasion and is determined that they shouldn't let Robert stand in their way, despite the obvious risks involved with bringing Rebecca and Seb back.

No-nonsense Chrissie has already warned Robert that Rebecca and Seb are far away and he'll never find them, but with both now expected back in time for the holidays, it's still all to play for.

Will Rebecca really be able to keep her presence secret from Robert, and if not, what kind of role might she play in his special Christmas episode?

Show bosses have tipped Robert as the one to watch on Christmas Day this year, as the hour-long Yuletide special – inspired by Groundhog Day and A Christmas Carol – sees his storyline come to a head.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
