Emmerdale newcomer Robbie to cause havoc
Emmerdale's latest newcomer Robbie is set to cause trouble for Megan Macey
Emmerdale's new character Robbie is set to unearth some skeletons from Megan Macey's past.
Robbie - played by TV newcomer Jamie Shelton, 21 - will "stir things up" for self assured Megan (Gaynor Faye) when he arrives on screens in May and show bosses have promised there will be drama for many other characters including Megan's brother Declan, his fiancee Katie Sugden and employee Nicola King.
A statement from ITV said: "Will the unexpected arrival of Robbie expose some skeletons Megan had hoped to hide? To date this self assured, composed woman has revealed very little about herself.
"Megan, Declan Macey, Katie and Nicola soon realise, his arrival will test the loyalties of everyone around him."
Speaking about Jamie's character, series producer Stuart Blackburn said: "I'm delighted to welcome Jamie to the cast. Robbie will certainly stir things up at Home Farm. He is a tough nut to crack and it will be a while before we get past the 'front' Robbie is well-used to putting on."
Jamie added: "I'm really excited to be joining 'Emmerdale'. Robbie is going to be a great character to play."
