LIFE has finally started to look up for Dawn Taylor and she is getting ready to welcome a second child.
But her past continues to catch up with the Emmerdale favourite as she gets a dark warning about her past drug use.
The young mother played by Olivia Bromley struggled to get her act together after years of living as a prostitute and battling an addiction to drugs.
However, once she found love in the ITV village in the form of Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle), things finally fell into place, despite serial killer Meena Jutla trying to break them apart.
Dawn managed to get custody of her son Lucas after giving up on drugs for good and was even allowed to welcome his half-sister Clemmie into her family.
In more recent scenes of the Yorkshire-based drama, Dawn then found out she was pregnant with her first child from her marriage with husband Billy.

But the ups and downs of pregnancy are harrowing for any woman, particularly if she has struggled with addiction in the past.
In scenes airing next week, Dawn attends an ante-natal class as she prepares herself to welcome a third child in her loved-up family.
However, the discussion of pain relief drugs concerns her as she realises she could have a relapse.
How will Dawn cope with the prospect of her addiction coming back with a vengeance?
