There's a new lady in Ashley's life, and she could be 'The One'...
Ex-Coronation Street actress Tracy Brabin will be joining the cast of Emmerdale to play Carole.
Ashley's soon to find love when he meets Carole. Hesitant, Ashley's reluctant to introduce his new lady to his friends but Harriet stirs things up by texting Carole from Ashley’s phone. Soon Carole is in the village but Harriet’s meddling backfires when things go well for Ashley and Carole...and Harriet realises she's jealous!
Speaking about her upcoming role, Tracy said, “It is a total delight to be playing Carole back in my home town of Leeds.
She’s funny and sexy with a dark secret. Ever since I played Trisha in Coronation Street, it’s been a personal and professional ambition to work with the wonderful actors and writers of Emmerdale. I hope the public take to Carole as much as I have.”
Tracy will first appear on Wednesday 23 July, so make sure you tune in to see whether Ashley's found the woman of his dreams or the jealous friend of his nightmares!
