Earlier in the episode, Charity was seen bumping into pregnant teenager Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) at an abortion clinic and giving her support.

When Amelia asked what she was doing at the clinic, Charity claimed she was seen for fibroids, before viewers later found out about her own pregnancy.

At the end of the cliffhanger, Charity was seen calling the abortion clinic before pausing the phone call to speak to her partner Mack (Lawrence Robb).

Mack said he was going to get takeout for them, prompting Charity to ask if he could bring her some extra pickles with the meal.

As they walked out the door, Mack joked that “anyone would think you’re pregnant”, with an emotional Charity remaining silent before returning to her phone call as she kept the news a secret.

In the closing lines of the episode, she said on the phone at the clinic, “I was supposed to have a layoff today but – yeah, it would be nice to make another booking.”

Charity has not confirmed if her partner Mack is the father, leaving viewers to wonder what she will choose to do next.

She is already the mother of four biological children – Debbie, Ryan, Noah and Moses – and adopted son Johnny.

Speaking about the Charity news, actress Emma revealed she decided to keep the pregnancy a secret because it wasn’t planned.

Emma told Metro: I don’t think she can really bear the thought of letting the whole village know she’s pregnant.

“There would be a lot of skepticism and judgment and she knows that because she hasn’t been the most successful mother.”

Earlier in Wednesday’s episode, Charity was seen supporting pregnant teenager Amelia.

The couple formed an unlikely bond after bumping into each other outside the abortion clinic, with Charity supporting a tearful 15-year-old Amelia.

Amelia then underwent a CT scan revealing she was in her second trimester and would need an abortion procedure, with a nurse urging her to speak to someone.

As Charity supported Amelia, she raised questions about the identity of the father, begging Amelia to tell her it was not her son Noah – soon to be released from prison.

“Please tell me who got you pregnant, it wasn’t Noah,” Charity said.

To which Amelia replied, “No, it’s not Noah.”

But a shocked Charity remained skeptical, asking, “Oh my God, it’s Noah, isn’t it?”

Amelia began to respond by saying “please Charity”, before being interrupted, leaving viewers convinced that Noah is the father of Amelia’s baby.

Noah is expected to be released from prison this week before completing his three-month sentence for stalking Chloe Harris. He has yet to forgive Charity for reporting him.

Speaking about Amelia’s pregnancy, actress Emma – who plays Charity – said the character is now convinced that Noah is the father of the teenager’s child.
