Emmerdale's Samantha Giles hits back at comments over Bernice's wig
Emmerdale’s Samantha Giles has hit back at people commenting on her character Bernice’s wig after returning to the Dales last week.
The stalwart of the ITV soap marched into Home Farm to confront Kim Tate (Claire King) in scenes that aired on Thursday, only to find her audiences focusing on whether or not her hair was real.
Samantha joined Tuesday’s episode of This Morning where she was asked by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary about why Bernice has been sporting a new do.
‘This has been a nightmare, this wig business,’ the actress said. ‘Yes, I am wearing a wig.’
‘What is the big deal?’ Alison hit back. ‘Who cares about whether she’s wearing a wig or not?’
‘I’ve had a lot of flack about it actually,’ Samantha pointed out. ‘The thing is, my own hair is very, very thick and wiry and it’s not like Bernice’s at all, who’s a hairdresser and has to look very coiffed and I can’t do anything with my hair. I can’t make it look like that.’
She added that Emmerdale’s make-up department agreed that popping Samantha in a wig was the best thing to do for the time being.
Fans were quick to notice Bernice’s wig last week, with many discussing it on social media.
‘Is it me or does it look like Bernice is wearing a wig?,’ said one viewer.
‘Why is Bernice wearing a wig?,’ added another.
Samantha previously told Metro.co.uk: ‘We’ve got this wig – which is a pretty good wig!
‘But obviously, I’ve got someone on the other end of the monitor going: “Can you tell Sam to brush the wig and to move these bits!”
‘So, that has all been really hard.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
