EMMERDALE viewers are in tears after Tracy Metcalfe tried to give up baby Frankie.
The mum – who is played by actress Amy Walsh in the ITV soap – is suffering from post natal depression.
She was rushed to a crisis centre after being found in troubling circumstances last night.
“I don’t want bonding time with her, I’ve already proved I’m no good at this,” she told the nurses tonight.
“All I need you to do is to let Nate take her away. Please, I can’t do it. I can’t look after her anymore.”
A specialist team offered Tracy support and tried to talk her through it all.
They told her they could help her through it – and she seemed to believe it.
She told them: “I love her so much. I want to do right by her so badly, I just wish everything didn’t feel so hard.”
However by the end of the episode when Nate visited Tracy to reassure her – she had slipped back.
And in devastating scenes she decided she couldn’t face being a mother.
She told Nate: “I’m sorry Nate. I can’t. It wouldn’t be fair on you – either of you. It’s over, Nate.
“The sooner they let us out of here, Frankie’s yours.”
Viewers were in tears at the scenes and heartbroken for the couple.
One wrote: “Hopefully once Tracey has proper medication and counselling, she’ll see things more clearer”
A second said: “Why dont they listen to Tracey? Its what she needs/wants right now thats important – not forcing her to be with frankie if she cant deal with it”
Another added: “Omg Tracey I’m so happy she’s getting help, I didn’t even know there was support like that available”
