Emmerdale star Sian Reese-Williams has said that she became very emotional while filming recent scenes. Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Reese-Williams, who plays Gennie Sharma in the soap, spoke about the scenes where her life hangs in the balance after a car crash.

She told The Sun: "It's a bit surreal really. It was really emotional and hard to watch.

"Of course it's not me dying, but it's a part of me. I've spent more time being her than being myself during the past five years.

"Gennie was so annoying but I was crying saying goodbye to her. I loved her because I spent so much time in her head."

She added: "When I found out that I was going to be killed off I was scared to start with. It made my decision that bit more final - there was no going back.

"But now I am happy because it really is an amazing way to go. I wouldn't have wanted to leave in the back of a cab."

Emmerdale airs Gennie's car crash on Thursday, July 25.
