John McArdle joins Emmerdale

A down-to-earth plumber is about to find himself at the centre of a Home Farm family dispute...

Former Brookside actor, John McArdle, has joined the cast of Emmerdale to play Ronnie Hale, a down-to-earth plumber who finds himself at the centre of a Home Farm family dispute.

When Chrissie comes across an old love letter from Ronnie, she instantly suspects he could be her biological father but it’s not until there’s the excuse of a leak at Home Farm that she decides to call him.

With Ronnie unaware of Chrissie’s true agenda, will she establish the truth?

I am thrilled to welcome an actor of John's pedigree to the show. And in Ronnie, we have a character that will unearth every painful fragment of love and loss buried in the White family's past \- with the odd unexploded bomb thrown in for good measure!
