Spoilers: Rhona Goskirk and Moira Dingle to destroy Kim Tate in Emmerdale

Emmerdale icons Rhona Goskirk and Moira Dingle have won over fans by sticking two fingers up to Kim Tate and joining forces on the farm – while setting up a dynamic friendship together which looks set to bring out the best in both characters. 

And actress Zoe Henry couldn’t have been happier to be working with Natalie J Robb on the scenes – and reckons that the characters will be more than a match for spiteful Kim!

In an exclusive interview with Metro.co.uk, she enthused: ‘I’m definitely pleased to be having more scenes with Natalie Robb, I think she is one of Emmerdale’s greatest assets and she is such a dream to work with!

‘Rhona and Moria were actually buddies way back when but sometimes things move on and get forgotten about so it’s great to rekindle their friendship and what a team eh? Moria’s had a tough time of things in the 10 years that she has lived in Emmerdale but then, so has Rhona!

‘They will be a great support to each other, I think. Both are currently delicate and fragile, this is a welcome union. Strong girls together! It not just the appeal of it, it’s a condition of the deal! Rhona says “Let’s be better than Kim”. She sees Kim as competition and she will do whatever it takes to make Butlers better than Wylies! To make it a success!

‘The final straw was Kim having Graham’s funeral on her own, denying Rhona the chance to say goodbye – hell hath no fury – this is war now! Moria and Rhona are a force to be reckoned with -put it this way, I wouldn’t like to go up against them!’

We can’t argue with that – and Zoe agreed that soap is at its strongest when its strong female characters are at the forefront, working together. 

She smiled: ‘Personally I’m thrilled to see two strong female characters standing together as opposed to at each other’s throats. I had high hopes for Rhona and Kim for the same reasons but that went pear-shaped as we know!

‘But Moira and Rhona are better suited as pals I think and its great, less of a soap clichè, no back-stabbing, just an honest friendship. And of course, as I’ve already said, Nat is just a dream to work with.

‘We’ve been dressing room buddies for the whole 10 years I’ve been back and so our real friendship and closeness lends itself to us having a great shorthand on set I think! Well, put it his way, we had eight two-hander scenes to shoot back to back recently and we managed to shoot them all by lunchtime. We we’re pretty pleased with ourselves!’


As for the Graham issue, knowing that his killer is behind bars and that she and Moira can now make something out of what he has left is allowing Rhona to begin healing, reckons Zoe. 

She mused: ‘Knowing the truth about Graham’s demise definitely offers closure for Rhona, as I think it would for anyone. There was so much confusion and suspicion surrounding his murder and then of course the utter panic and fear she felt when she realised Pierce had been released from prison, all of that is behind her now, finally, she has clarity and can breath easy again.

‘She is enormously relieved to have Marlon back too and for him to have his name cleared, not just for Leo’s sake but because he is her great friend and an enormous support to her.’
