    Ex-Emmerdale star Leah Bracknell has revealed she is battling terminal lung cancer. The 52-year-old actress, who played Zoe Tate in the long-running TV soap for 16 years, has set up a fundraising page to get life-saving treatment at a specialist clinic in Germany.

    Writing on her GoFund.me page, the actress described how she received the devastating news of her condition last month. "My abdomen suddenly ballooned and within a matter of a few days I looked heavily pregnant. I could barely walk or breathe," she explained. "Then, one Saturday night at the beginning of September I ended up in A&E.

    Leah Bracknell was one the best Emmerdale actresses, Zoe Tate is a character that has been hard to replace for many years after her departure, I was just thinking about having Zoe, Joseph and Jean returning to the Dales and have the Tates dominate once more.

    I'm praying for her, she's a lovely woman.

    I dont know who she is (never caught Emmerdale) but sad that someone so young in her 50s is terminally ill

    I wish her and anyone else in her situation with trying different treatments
