Gabby Thomas from Emmerdale has had bad luck with men, especially since Jamie Tate the bad guy tricked her.
Rosie Bentham’s character in Emmerdale, Gabby Thomas, was devastated when Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln), who had faked his own death, left her to raise their child by herself. Since then, Gabby has focused on raising her son, but in recent weeks, the young entrepreneur met newcomer Nicky (Lewis Cope). The children’s new nanny, Nicky, was hired by Kim Tate (Claire King), but it is obvious that Gabby has a strong interest in the outsider.
In upcoming scenes, Nicky and Gabby share a kiss, but the nanny pulls away from the businesswoman because she thinks he might lose his job.
Rosie and Lewis discussed their upcoming plot in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk and other media.
Rosie acknowledged that her “intentions were clear” when Gabby first met Nicky after calling him “fit” in front of him.
She hasn’t gotten much attention since Jamie, the actress claimed.
“I mean, she is a mum at the end of the day, but she’s now trying to get a bit more in with Kim and Kim offers her this job.
“And there’s this thing with Dawn and all this rivalry with being the most successful.
“Gabby has always been obsessed with being driven, being successful and having lots of money for her.
“And then a male walks in and all of that is thrown to the side.”
Rosie continued, referring to Gabby’s promotion and how the kiss occurred: “I get this promotion.
“Gabby’s first job is to pitch some stuff to many school governors and teach them whatever at The Hyde about a new thing that’s coming in. I’m really excited about that.
“And it kind of goes one way and then it kind of goes another way, but in the end, Kim’s impressed, and she gets the job, and the first person she goes to, to celebrate is Nicky.
I believe Gabby is merely overjoyed and believes her life is headed in the right direction.
So, don’t you think we get carried away, too? Lewis contributed.
“Then it almost occurs. However, I believe Nicky turns his attention back to his work and says, “You shouldn’t be doing this,” before kind of backing off.
Rosie continued, “I think it leaves Gabby very conflicted. “Because she is receiving signals from Nicky that are very clear.
“We’ve been flirting or whatever and then finally she goes, ‘Cool, this is what I am going to do’, leans in for a kiss and is rejected.
“Gabby has been rejected many times before so she’s like, ‘Here we go again’.”
She went on to say: “It’s clear they both fancy each other and the audience are going to be egging them on, to be honest.”
When asked whether it is just a physical attraction, the Nicky star said: “I think it is emotional.”
There is obviously a connection between them, but can Nicky fend off Gabby’s advances?
If they spend the night together, could the young person face another pregnancy scandal because Gabby is determined to get what she wants?
Or will Nicky follow Jamie Tate’s example and flee?
