Lilith first visits Emmerdale in October 2004 for a Dingle family celebration to mark their 10th anniversary of living in the village. To pursue her singing career, she then leaves her four children - named after the Apostles - with her cousin Marlon Dingle for a month before collecting them on 21st November. Lilith returns on November 2006 when she leaves her four children with Marlon and his wife Donna while she goes away to work. Days later Lilith is arrested for armed robbery. Shortly after, she is arrested for armed robbery and remanded in police custody. After months on remand, Lilith stands trial on 12th July 2007, and is freed when the case collapses after a prosecution witness collapses after being intimidated by Eli Dingle. The following day she take her four children to Ireland with her, much to Donna and Marlon's distress.
