Emma is married to actor Ian Dunn.
Emma really cried when filming the proposal scene in The Vicar Of Dibley.
When Emma was given the script that included the tongue-twisting "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" speech on a Friday afternoon, her co-star Dawn French told her she'd never be able to remember it by the next Friday when filming began in front of a live audience. That weekend, Emma and her husband drove to the country to visit relatives and Emma practised the speech over one hundred times in the car and learnt it perfectly for rehearsals the next Monday. Dawn French was speechless!
Emma trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama.
Emma is allergic to most animals and hay. This made filming the birth scene in The Vicar Of Dibley extremely difficult for her.
