On 18 March 2009, it was announced Atkins would be returning to Emmerdale as part of the ongoing overhaul of the show by series producer, Gavin Blyth, Of her decision to reprise her role, Atkins said: “Charity is a wonderfully complex character and an absolute joy to play.
I couldn’t resist the opportunity to explore a new era of Charity, Cain and Debbie and will relish seeing what she’s been up to since we saw her last.” Charity and her five-year-old son returned on 1 October 2009. Two months later, Digital Spy’s Kris Green reported Atkins had signed a six-month extension to her contract, keeping her with the show well into 2010.

Charity was written out of Emmerdale after receiving a prison sentence for perverting the course of justice. After a few brief returns throughout the rest of 2015, Charity returned permanently on 10 March 2016 when she was eventually released from prison.
