Martelle Edinborough seemed to appear out of nowhere in Yorkshire when she was run over by Vanessa Woodfield, in March 2022.

Ever since she took her first steps in the village of the same name, ITV viewers have been curious to know all about her character, Suzy Merton.

In scenes airing on our screens next week, you’ll get another glimpse of just how heartbreaking his past could have been, after discovering he has a bad drug addiction.

It all starts when the rookie inspires Moira Barton (played by Natalie J. Robb) by suggesting she rent out her barns for weddings.

Unbeknownst to Suzy, she questions Moira about the use of the field where her daughter Holly is buried.

But when Leyla Cavanagh (played by Roxy Shahidi) points to a photo of Holly, Suzy is shocked to recognize her.

Leyla is confused when Suzy, clearly unsettled, runs out of Moira’s house after repeatedly looking at Holly’s picture.

He eventually finds Suzy at the cafe while surreptitiously browsing through a Holly Barton souvenir online page.

The template is ready for Suzy when she admits to Leyla that she knew Holly, prompting her to open up even more.

Holly was the eldest daughter of Moira and John Barton and was found dead after a friend’s wedding on September 29, 2016.

The character succumbed to a heroin overdose while battling drug addiction during his years in the village.

His fight was hard, and despite a recovery, he was unable to overcome his demons.

After her death, her family and ex-boyfriend Aaron Dingle searched for answers, wanting to know who supplied Holly.

Many villagers were accused of giving her the drugs, including Emmerdale businessman Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson), with whom Holly had a secret relationship.

The answers never came as Moira is still struggling to deal with her daughter’s death.
