    Emmerdale fans were left in shock nearly a decade ago when Gemma Andrews was killed by best friend Belle Dingle.

    Gemma first arrived in the village as the daughter of Dom Andrews in 2012 and quickly became embroiled in huge storylines, such as her pregnancy by Sean Spencer.

    However after choosing to have an abortion, Belle wrote about her decision on a school whiteboard – leading to a feud between the two.

    She later became friends with Belle and Sean once again, but after becoming jealous of their relationship, Gemma erupted at Belle and the two became embroiled in a fight.

    Belle pushed Gemma, causing her to hit her head on a rock and collapse.

    Gemma's father Dom was told she would never recover and he made the devastating decision to turn off her life support, with Belle later sentenced to three years in a detention center for her murder.

    In tonight's episode of the ITV soap (May 24, 2023), Belle confesses to Tom that she accidentally killed Gemma – but she worries that telling him the truth will ruin everything between them.

    As Belle mentions Gemma's murder, fans may be wondering where the actress who played Gemma is now.

    Tendai Rinomhota played the teenager in Emmerdale between 2012 to 2015, after previously starring in stage productions such as Annie.

    She has since made a return to her theatrical roots, with the Birmingham Rep website reporting that she trained in Musical Theatre and received a BA Hons degree from the Arts Educational School, London.

    From there Tendai has played Rizzo in the Grease UK Tour and Tina: The Musical, along with the Cinderella pantomime at Theatre Royal Stratford East in 2022.

    However, Tendai appears to keep her personal life away from the public eye and not much is known about her life away from the stage and screen.

    She does keep her fans and followers updated on her social media pages though, including sharing glam snaps of herself on holiday in gorgeous bikinis and stunning outfits.

    And she looks worlds away from Gemma in one snap which showed her rocking beautiful blonde locks in a bar.

    Fans also swooned over the star when she shared a snap from the premiere of Tina: The Musical.

    Tendai looked radiant as she posed on the red carpet in a tiny pink dress, complete with pink feathers around the bust, as she flaunted her gorgeous figure.

    Her followers flocked to the comments section to praise the star, with one saying: "I'm in love," followed by a heart emoji.

    "GORG," said a second, followed by heart-eye emojis, while a third penned: "Just beautiful."
