EMMERDALE fans are in tears for April Windsor after she lost her fourth mother figure in her short life.
The ten year old – who is played by child actress Amelia Flanagan in the ITV soap – said an emotional goodbye to her step-mum Jessie Dingle after she cheated on Marlon and left for a new life in Dubai.
April first lost her mum Donna in 2014 when she took her own life to kill a pervert who had threatened to abuse her daughter.
She had a terminal illness but Donna decided to save her daughter and threw herself and the man off a building to make sure he couldn’t abuse any more children.
Struggling to cope with Donna’s death, Marlon was supported by his girlfriend Laurel who helped him tell April what had happened to her mum.
But shortly after Laurel decided she couldn’t marry Marlon and the pair split, further upending April’s life.

Apil later played match-maker with her dad and Bob Hope’s daughter Carly.
She schemed to get them together and it worked with the couple becoming happy and moving in together.
They were a happy family until Carly’s ex showed up and she abandoned the family she had created in the village for a life elsewhere.
April was devastated at the loss, but eventually recovered and began playing matchmaker again.
