Natalie Anderson's Emmerdale hurricane
Natalie Anderson says her 'Emmerdale' character Alicia Gallagher will be like a ''hurricane'' when she walks into the village next week
Alicia Gallagher will walk into 'Emmerdale' "like a hurricane" next week.
Actress Natalie Anderson - who plays the wannabe WAG in the ITV soap - is thrilled with her new role and promises her character will shock villagers and viewers alike.
She said: "She's bold as brass. She's absolutely brilliant. I can't explain how much I like playing her.
"When we first see her you think she's got this hard exterior and she blows into the village like a complete hurricane and people just stand there in shock, watching her with open mouths."
Alicia is the sister of Leyla Harding (Roxanne Ghawam-Shahidi) and Natalie says the siblings have a secret that has driven a wedge between them.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "Let's just say that Alicia would be happy if she never say Leyla again.
"There's a secret between the sisters that only they know about which will entice the viewers.
"I don't think they hate each other but Alicia is the oldest, more dominant sister who has the potential to spoil everything Leyla has created in the village."
