Diane Sugden Actress Elizabeth Estensen quits Emmerdale after 22 years

The 72-year-old actress first debuted as the character n 1999 and Diane has been a fixture of the Dales and involved in several high-profile storylines.

In a statement, she said: “For the past 22 years I have loved playing Diane Sugden. She’s kind, reliable, and fiercely loyal. However, I now feel the time has come to say goodbye.”

In her statement, she added: “‘Emmerdale’ will always remain special to me. I’ve been treated with respect and kindness and I’ve had the very best friends and colleagues, both past and present. I’ll miss everyone dearly.”

Head of ITV’s Continuing Drama, John Whiston, was keen to pay tribute to the soap legend and her “shining” presence in the Yorkshire-based soap opera, even referring to her as the “queen” of ‘Emmerdale’.

He said: “For 22 years, Liz has shone through the screen and into our living rooms as the natural heart and center of the Sugden family. It’s a role she has made so totally her own, bringing compassion, humor, and credibility to her portrayal of Diane.

“Whenever she’s on-screen, as a viewer, you just let out a contented sigh and say to yourself, ‘The queen is on her throne and all is well with the world.”
