A cougar is set to spice things up in 'Emmerdale'.
Tania Page - played by 'Bad Girls' star Victoria Pritchard - will arrive in the sleepy Yorkshire village to prowl on men much younger than her and hunky David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) is already lined up as her first target.
However, his girlfriend Leyla Harding (Roxanne Ghawam-Shahidi) is furious and although she and David are happy, she is worried how far Tania will go in a bid to get her man.
A source said: "David's devoted to Leyla, but older women can be very persuasive."
Producers are also hoping signing up Victoria - who has also appeared in medical drama 'Holby City' - will give the ITV1 soap an extra bit of sophisticated sexiness.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "'Emmerdale' is awash with young actresses. But Victoria should add a bit of sophistication and glamour compared to the country lasses."
Victoria joins the soap next month, with her alter-ego Tania set to appear on TV screens later in the summer.
