Emmerdale star Lisa Riley has spoken out about the impact of Mandy Dingle's infertility storyline.

Back in June, Mandy told her teenage son Vinny that she'd tragically suffered a miscarriage shortly after Paul had left, and had later undergone an operation that meant she would never be able to have children.

Discussing the reaction to the storyline on Digital Spy's brand new Soap Scoop podcast, Lisa – who plays Mandy – said: "If you'd have seen my social media when the lockdown episode happened – inundated is not a big enough word.

"Just girls that were like 26 years old who had had hysterectomies and just to say thank you to Emmerdale for bringing it to the forefront. We are going to re-visit the infertility because obviously Paul has no idea that Mandy was pregnant all those years ago with his baby."

Lisa added: "I'm elated we're discussing it [infertility] because it's opened a massive door for me as well. I've spoken openly in my own personal life, where my IVF didn't work and people treat you differently.

"It's like 'oh and are you okay with that?' I'm very happy that in my own personal life I have a family, my niece, my two beautiful nephews are a huge part of my life – so yeah I don't have a child of my own, but I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything."
