Dawn Taylor received an unexpected visitor in Emmerdale in recent scenes, as her ex Alex turned up in the village and announced himself to Lucas as his biological father.
After Alex had an altercation with Billy Fletcher, Meena Jutla used this to add to fuel to the fire between Billy and Dawn, but instead, it only serves to bring the two closer.
Meena later dropped an unexpected revelation to Alex that is set to turn Dawn and Billy’s worlds upside down.
Although Dawn has had her fair share of dramas onscreen since arriving in Emmerdale in 2018, actress Olivia Bromley has a much less dramatic life, including jet setting holidays, a spectacular hidden talent and a glamorous off-screen transformation.
Life before Emmerdale
Born on December 6, Olivia trained at the Oxford School of Drama and has performed in various theatre productions, before landing her first film and tv roles.
Her first onscreen role was in the feature film Here Be Dragons in 2018 as Tina, before she won the role of Dawn Taylor in ITV soap Emmerdale in 2018.

Although Olivia is well known to soap fans as Dawn Taylor, she also has a hidden talent off screen.

That wasn’t all, as she also took part in The Woolpack Sessions, along with other Emmerdale stars such as Dean Andrews, singing popular songs and playing musical instruments for viewers.
Away from the village of Emmerdale, Olivia has a much more jet set lifestyle than her character, and has previously shared photos of her holidays on social media.
Her luxury lifestyle has seen the actress travel to destinations such as Dubai with her sister Claudia, with Olivia revealing that her dream destination is Bali.
Other destinations have included Sardinia and a photo from Qatar, showing clear skys and the blue ocean in the distance.
However, Olivia has also shared some beautiful photos of her life closer to home too, with the actress posing in the sun at destinations such as the Peak District and sharing photos of the wildlife in the area.
She also posted a glamorous photos at Latitude Festival where the actress looked radiant in a black summer playsuit.
It’s a far cry away from her onscreen Emmerdale character, with Olivia posting a photo of Dawn with the caption: “All kicking off in Emmerdale. Dawn loving her triple denim as per.”
Her social media photos show the actress’ glamorous transformation offscreen, with the star posing in a gorgeous black and white lace dress with a sweetheart neckline at the TV Choice Awards.
