Christine Sharp was born in 1949 to farmer Robert Sharp and his wife Eve. She was their only child.
Christine Sharp arrived in the village in 1973. She worked as a farm hand at Emmerdale Farm. She begun dating Joe Sugden, whose family owned the farm. In early 1974 traveller Dryden Hogben began to be friendly with her and Joe mistook this as him trying to seduce her. Dry assured him that he was being friendly. Joe and Christine married in September 1974 but split just 6 weeks later. Christine spent a lot of money on furniture on her dads credit card. This lead to a huge row between Joe and Christine. She moved out and went to stay with an old boyfriend Alan Baines, whom Joe had heard about. Joe and Christine realised they were not right for each other. Joe kept having to answer to Christine's father who wondered where she had gone. In late 1974, Joe realised his marriage was over.
In April 1976 Christine returned to the village to try and reconcile but they both decided not to and she then left the village, never to return. They then divorced.
In 1995, 20 years later, Christine sent flowers to Joe's funeral. She must have found out about his death in local newspapers or on the news.
