Emmerdale actress Samantha Giles spoke today about her witchcraft practises on Lorraine and how she cast a love spell to meet her husband.

Samantha, 46, who has played Bernice Blackstock in Emmerdale for 10 years in total, has previously spoken about her extraordinary practises.

The actress, who described herself as a Wiccan, previously left a trail of her urine for her lost cat to find his way home - which did work!

But Samantha spoke today about how she used her faith to meet her husband.

She confessed that she had "cast a love spell" to meet the right person - but not that she had cast the spell on her husband specifically, adding that it wasn't as "bonkers as it sounds."

Samantha, who shares two children with her husband, told Lorraine: "I've always been a wiccan, a white witch, so I cast a love spell before I met him to meet the right person."

Lorraine at this point said "Ok" in that way that people do when they're trying to be overly open-minded about something. You know the one.

She went on: "It's not as bonkers as it sounds. Lots of people are into manifesting. A lot of people have read The Secret, it's ritualising it and using all kids of things."

The actress, who also used to star in Hollyoaks, added: "I use candles and crystals in the magic I do. I wrote down exactly what I was after. Then I met Sean, and I looked down at everything I'd written a few months later and he was exactly what I had written. It's as if he appeared by magic!"

Ahh, righty o then.

But Samantha became quite serious when saying that you couldn't use your magic for evil: "You can't do anything bad because it will come back on you through time."

Well, quite.
