Paula Lane joins the cast of Emmerdale

A former Coronation Street star has joined the cast of Emmerdale, ITV’s other serial drama.

Paula Lane will play Ella Forster who finds herself jobless when she sticks up for Mandy (Lisa Riley), who is attending a veterinary ball with Paddy (Dominic Brunt).

Far from a pushover, luck is soon to come Ella’s way when a chance encounter with Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) opens up an opportunity.

It’s not long before Ella is turning heads in the village.

Lane is best known for playing Kylie Platt – David’s feisty wife – in Coronation Street between 2010-2016.

Speaking about her latest role, the actress said:

“I’m so excited to be joining the cast of Emmerdale. Everyone has been so welcoming and I can’t wait to start a new chapter playing the role of Ella. I’ve already heard there are big plans for her and I can’t wait to see her navigate a new life in the village and hopefully make some friends!”

Producer Kate Brooks teased: “Ella is a complex and multi-layered character who certainly makes an impact. Ostensibly she’s a good, moral character, but is there more to her than meets the eye?”

Lane will begin filming at the Emmerdale studios in Leeds this month.
