Emmerdales Suzy star Martelle Edinborough undergoes operation for brain aneurysm

Emmerdale actress Martelle Edinborough has revealed that she underwent major surgery for a brain aneurysm.

Martelle, 35, who is best-known for playing party planner Suzy Merton in the ITV soap, took to Twitter to share the news of her operation – which was a success – as she thanked NHS staff for their work.

"A few wks ago I was told an existing brain aneurysm thought to always be tiny & stable had in fact always been of a size that needed treatment,’ Martelle posted on her Twitter account early on Wednesday (April 19).

The actress, who has starred in other TV soaps, continued: "Not sure where the error occurred for it to take so long to highlight this but despite the initial shock, I could only receive it as a Blessing & refused to allow it manifest into fear, stress & anxiety.

The actress then posted a snap of herself recovering in hospital in a blue gown as she flashed a brave smile and peace signs with her hands.

Next to this, she wrote: "This is me post surgery. Peace signs at the readyyy!

"I can’t tell you how happy & blessed I felt/feel rn! Massive, MASSIVE thank you to all the incredible @NHSuk Dr’s, nurses & support staff, you are Amazing! & I am TRULY grateful to you all #Blessed."

Her fans flooded the comments section with their well-wishes, as one person wrote: "You are a superwoman. I am so happy you got treatment and your mindset is to be admired. Be more Martelle. Good luck in recovery. So happy to have worked with you. Get well soon."

Martelle replied to the person in question, promising she will "soon be back at it," after "plenty of rest over the next couple of weeks," suggesting that a return to work is not too far off the cards.

She spent lots of time replying to each and every person who had wished her well on her recovery, as she often called people "beauts" or "lovely" as she thanked them for their kind words.

Martelle's Emmerdale character Suzy Merton made her first appearance early last year. She was introduced as a love interest for Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick).

It was then confirmed in March this year that Suzy is set to become a permanent fixture on the show, as she shared that she had been given a cast coat with her name emblazoned across the back of it.
