‘Emmerdale’ is set to welcome a new family in the coming weeks, however not everybody will be rushing to meet their new neighbours.
When an open day is held ahead of the auction of Home Farm , Nicola’s rude to one prospective buyer, named Chrissie White - not realising she’s the fiancé of Robert Sugden, who is about to make his big return.
When the prospective buyer’s father Lawrence arrives, he obviously decides Home Farm is an ideal residence and snaps up the property.
The family will get another member shortly after their arrival when Chrissie’s 14-year-old son Lachlan arrives.
Kate Oates, the Series Producer, has revealed details of how well the family be received, stating: “Home Farm has always been the seat of power in ‘Emmerdale’.
“In Lawrence, we have a family man, with serious status and a complex history.
“Robert's going to have to prove himself worthy - not just of the big House on the Hill, but of Lawrence's daughter, Chrissie. But will the ghosts of his past hold him back?”
Chrissie will be played by soap newcomer Louise Marwood while John Bowe, who previously starred in ‘Coronation Street’ takes on the role of Lawrence White.
TV newcomer Ryan Hawley has taken over the role of Robert Sugden.
