Bob gets a surprise when his daughter shows up in the village


Next week is a big one for Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) as his daughter Carly turns up unexpectedly in the village – in a wedding dress!


“It’s nice to have a grand entrance,” says actress and former Hollyoaks star Gemma Atkinson.  “The only trouble is that it was freezing in that dress. When we were filming, it was snowing. So I actually had my jogging bottoms on underneath the dress and some old boots!”

As for Carly, it turns out that she’s onto engagement number five and that she’s only known for fiancé for a matter of months. It’s a set of circumstances that makes the much-married Bob highly suspicious of Carly’s nuptials…

You can watch Carly’s arrival below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on Emmerdale.
