Amelia is consuming weight gaining syrup (Picture: ITV)
Recent episodes of Emmerdale have shown Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) becoming increasingly concerned about her body image and in coming episodes we’ll see this start to become a serious problem for her as she resorts to taking dangerous supplements in an effort to control her weight.
We’ve seen Amelia get upset after a picture of her that Gabby (Rosie Bentham) posted on social media got lots of likes – but then one horrible, negative comment from a troll. Amelia has been spending money on buying gym clothing and has mentioned that she feels her body is far from the ideal. She wants the kind of curvy body that she sees in photos online.
In coming episodes she starts taking weight gain syrup, even though she’s aware that it could be dangerous for her. At the same time she isn’t eating properly and this leads her to collapse while she’s out with her friends.
Cathy (Gabrielle Dowling) has already become concerned about Amelia’s behaviour and knows she’s taking something, but Amelia managed to fob her off. Will Cathy share what she knows with someone who can get through to Amelia before she does herself some serious harm?
