ITV fans were gobsmacked that Faith would stoop so low.
One wrote: “Don’t keep the results a secret Faith.”
Another shared: “Oh Faith, tell them!”
A third added: “Faith should of told cain about being cancer free. It will only make things worse when he finds out later on.”
Speaking about her cancer storyline, Emmerdale star Sally Dexter – who plays Faith in the ITV soap – told the Mirror: “She’s scared, once you’ve been bitten by cancer it’s very easy to live in fear in some ways of it coming back.
“She doesn’t live in fear of it but it hovers at the back of her mind. It’s dramatic.
Talking about whether it could reunite her family, she added: “She doesn’t want to worry them or for them to accept her out of pity.
“She wants a real relationship with them again, and that matters to her more than anything and it’s a big deal.
“She would certainly hope [it would bring them closer] and would turn herself inside out to make that happen.
“But it certainly brings all of that to the forefront of things. The relationship is very dramatic and heartfelt.”
