Former Hollyoaks babe, Gemma Atkinson, has just been announced as Emmerdale’s newest residence when she hits our screens in late March as Carly, the estranged daughter of Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw).
Bob has missed out on her growing up and Carly thinks he has a lot of lost time to make up for and could prove to be a thorn in Bob’s side. With a string of failed relationships behind her, Carly has more in common with her seven-times married father than she’d care to admit, but can she find love in Emmerdale?
Gemma says: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of Emmerdale and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Carly. I hope you all enjoy watching her story unfold.”
Kate Oates, Emmerdale Series Producer says: “I’m delighted to welcome Gemma to the cast, her character Carly is sure to liven things up for Bob and Brenda and anyone who crosses her path.”
