Christine Tremarco joins Emmerdale

Christine Tremarco has joined the cast of ITV’s Emmerdale and is due to make her debut on screen later this month.

Christine will be playing the character of Rose, who is known to Kim Tate’s husband, Will, played by Dean Andrews.

Christine Tremarco:

“I am thrilled to be joining Emmerdale! To be working with such a wonderful cast and crew along with the brilliant writing and production team is an absolute joy! Rose is so much fun to play. She is free spirited, boisterous and totally mischievous with a steely edge and a big heart.”

Bolshy and boisterous, Rose has recently been living in Benidorm and her arrival is sure to cause a stir when Will fails to mention her to Kim, played by Claire King. Christine has a wealth of television credits to her name including The Responder, Safe House and Casualty.

In other soap casting news, Coronation Street has confirmed the return of Kimberly Hart Simpson after four years away as Daniel (Rob Mallard) goes in search of help from old friend Nicky Wheatley.

Roy (David Neilson) may be DS Swain’s number one suspect for the murder of missing Lauren Bolton but Daniel knows he’s also still under suspicion. Desperate to clear his name he enlists the help of Nicky, who previously worked as an escort herself, when she first met Daniel who turned to her for emotional support after losing wife Sinead to cancer.

Nicky is now an outreach worker in the community and Daniel believes she may be able to help find information about Lauren’s disappearance from the girls she supports on the streets. The connection still there between the pair, Nicky is keen to try and help Daniel, but the girls she works with are scared and vulnerable following news of Lauren’s murder.

Kimberly Hart Simpson:

“It’s been 4 years since we first met Nicky and it is once again a pleasure to be back on the cobbles. Stories surrounding women within the sex industry have often been forgotten, shamed or unspoken.

“But not at Coronation Street, they respectfully explore the world these women live in, the impact it has on the community and at some points dangers attached to the work. The story of Lauren Bolton has allowed the safety of other characters to come forward such as Cassie but unfortunately led to the devastating effects of conspiracy theories by other folk. Nicky has fought against all stereotypes and I am looking forward to the audience finding out who and where she is today.”
