Ellie’s character Faye recently got hit by a devastating bombshell.

After Faye thought she was pregnant, both she and boyfriend Craig were thrilled.

However when Faye began bleeding she went to the hospital for a scan.

It was revealed at the scan that Faye was never pregnant.

After tests revealed Faye was going through the menopause at just 20 years old, she was devastated to learn she wouldn’t be able to have children.

She has been struggling with the diagnosis, with Craig’s overbearing support seeing her fall into the arms of Michael Bailey, who she kissed.

But Craig star Colson Smith teased there will be more exploring Craig and Faye’s relationship.

Speaking RadioTimes at the British Soap Awards 2022 he said: “I guess what’s coming up for Craig is exploring that relationship more between him and Faye.

“Obviously they’re a young couple, they’ve known each other for so long, but they’ve not always been in a relationship.

“It’s kind of completely challenging times. So it’s going to be really interesting to see where that goes.”

Fans have also predicted that Faye may want to see her daughter, Miley, who she gave up.

Faye fell pregnant at the age of 12 and when she was 13 she have birth to Miley Windass.
