But the pair married anyway and Dawn soon gave birth to their son, Terry Junior or TJ.

Unfortunately, the couple went their separate ways after Terry had a stroke and Dawn struggled to cope looking after her baby and husband.

Dawn was also known for her relationships with Scott Windsor and Danny Daggert.

After a short stint in prison, Dawn made the decision to leave Emmerdale for good and move to Cornwall with her son and new boyfriend.

How did Dawn die in Emmerdale?

Before leaving the village in 2006, Dawn went with her step-sister, Donna Windsor-Dingle, to view her new house which was built by Jimmy King.

Jimmy was furious with his ex-wife Sadie, who had secretly got engaged to his brother, Matthew.

After a furious row, Matthew and Sadie paid Cain to bulldoze the show home, but Jimmy was determined to open on time so he quickly patched up the damage.

On the day of the launch of the new housing development, there was an explosion which killed three people including Dawn.

Dawn was dragged from the building in front of her devastated dad, Bob.
