Emmerdales Sally Dexter has revealed the enormous risk character Faith Dingle takes to save Sarah Sugden from giving up on lifesaving surgery.
The 58-year-old actress, who plays Faith, appeared on This Morning to tease whats next after young Sarah decided to turn down a heart transplant after overhearing Faith remarking it would be a waste of time.
Speaking to hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford about Faiths actions to switch Sarahs decision, Dexter said: She takes the most enormous risk to do that [save her life].
She actually kidnaps Sarah from the hospital and takes her on a big adventure to try and show her life is worth living. She has to try and that its worth trying.
Asked whether she believes Faith really does reckon Sarah should just cherish the time she has left, Dexter added: I think Faith really does think, look lets keep her the way she is, rather than risk something awful happening in operation.

My father when he was 29 was told he had ten years to live, Dexter added. Through diet, exercise, he made it to 70.
