Who is Juliette Holiday from Emmerdale and what do we know about actress Amelia Curtis?

Back in January, Juliette Holliday returned to Emmerdale out of the blue, to the shock of Jimmy and Nicola King.

Fans of the soap will know Juliette as the mother of Jimmy's son Carl, but what else do we know about her? And where have you seen actress Amelia Curtis before?

Who is Juliette Holiday from Emmerdale?

Juliette last appeared in Emmerdale back in 2014, demanding that Jimmy sign papers to waive his rights to their then unborn child.

The character conceived his baby after a mix up at the fertility clinic meant she was accidentally impregnated with Jimmy's sperm rather than that of her agreed donor.

Juliette then ended up giving birth at Mill Cottage and the newborn was named Carl.

While Jimmy was allowed to see his baby, Juliette’s estranged husband Greg turned up and Jimmy was banned from visiting his son.

Nicola then ran away with baby Carl, but changed her mind and returned him to his mum, before Jimmy had to convince her not to press charges.

In 2015, Greg unexpectedly left and Juliette asked Jimmy to take care of Carl.
