Where is Alicya Eyo now?
Alicya, now 47, was compelled to check herself into rehab for drinking after playing Ruby on the serial opera.
The actress acknowledged that after leaving, she found it difficult to adapt and eventually lost everything.
In 2021, Alicya remarked on a podcast: “In 2017, I reached a stage in my life when, after leaving Emmerdale and going through a relationship breakup, I essentially went to drink, which wasn’t ideal.
“As a result, I was able to lose everything, even myself. That was the primary factor.So I visited the most incredible rehab center in Liverpool, Transforming Choice. They aided in my understanding of my motivations.
If I’m being honest, those three months were both the best and the worst of my life. I was a little nervous about going to rehab and having people find out who I am.
“I believe that is the reason I delayed, and I did delay it for a considerable amount of time just for that reason.
“That I would be recognized and assessed by others. However, the facility I visited there was completely judgment-free. It was outstanding. They helped me feel comfortable discussing it freely.
Alicya received her big break in 2003 when she played Denny Blood in the television series Bad Girls. She has since gone on to act in Doctors, Casualty, and The Bill.
She recently appeared in the new seasons of The Syndicate, Waterloo Road, and the Channel 5 prison drama Clink.
