Emmerdale's Rhona Goskirk set to 'captivate viewers' as 'fascinating' storyline develops

Emmerdale boss Jane Hudson has hinted a “captivating” storyline will unfold for village veterinarian Rhona Goskirk (played by Zoe Henry) on the ITV soap. 

The character’s world was thrown upside-down last month when her ex-husband Gus Malcolm (Alan McKenna) visited Emmerdale asking for help to become a father with his new partner. 

He asked Rhona about using the frozen embryos they had stored from IVF treatment from when they were married. 

However, Rhona thought the embryos had been destroyed and was not sure how to react when Gus said he and his partner were desperate to start a family of their own but could not conceive naturally. 

In the end, she told the pair she would not give her consent for the embryos to be used.

Speaking to Express.co.uk and other media, producer Jane Hudson confirmed: “There is a long way to go with that story. 

“It’s one of those stories that when you think it’s ended, it probably hasn’t. It’s a fascinating story and I think Zoe is a brilliant actress.

“We always want to find the next big story and I think this is Rhona’s next big story. It’s going to be one that really captures the viewers.”

Zoe recently opened up about the storyline, telling Digital Spy: “I certainly hope it gathers pace – I don’t actually know, but I thought that Alan [McKenna] who played Gus was brilliant.

“This storyline really provoked conversations on set amongst the crew – and with me and other cast members.” 

The actress admitted she could see Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock), Rhona and Gus’ side of the story. 

“I think it could potentially be problematic for Marlon and Rhona – how could it not?” Zoe added. 

Could Rhona go behind her husband Marlon’s back and agree to let Gus use the embryos? 

Would she end up regretting her decision if this was the case? Is Gus even being genuine, or is there something sinister happening in the foreground?

It might be wise for Rhona to sit down and speak with Marlon before making any important decisions. 

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and ITVX.
