During the actress's stint on the soap her character was involved in some of the most controversial storylines.
An Emmerdale spokeswoman said: "Kelly has some grievances to settle and will be stirring things up from the moment she arrives back in the village."
Silva has recently appeared on Celebrity Fear Factor and The Salon.
"I'm very excited and can't wait to start filming," said the 24-year-old actress.
"It will be interesting to see what Kelly has been up to during the past five years and I'm looking forward to catching up with some old friends at Emmerdale."
