Leo returns to Emmerdale

With Marlon and Rhona’s wedding fast approaching, Leo appeared in a small scene where he was trying on his wedding outfit.

Looking daper in a suit alongside on-screen sister April, Leo did a twirl to show off his attire.

Mum Rhona told them: “You two look beautiful.”

Dad Marlon agreed: “Like two little angels.”

The happy moment was broken up by arguing Vanessa and Mary coming home and Rhona sent the kids back upstairs to change.

Why has Leo been absent from Emmerdale?

After filming was halted on Emmerdale due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, Harvey stopped filming along with the other cast members.

When Emmerdale resumed, children were not called back. This was because they required chaperones and as strict social distancing measures were in place, they needed to limit numbers on set.

Harvey filmed his first scenes back at the soap in June 2021.

However, he has not been seen on screen for months as children are still being kept to a minimum on set.
