Emmerdale: where have you seen Ashley’s carer Will before?

Actor Ben Gerrard has actually been on the ITV soap before...


Emmerdale got a new addition to its cast tonight as Ben Gerrard made his debut as Ashley’s carer Will. But this isn’t the first time that the actor has appeared on the ITV soap.


The 32-year-old first appeared in 2012 as a completely different character – Luke, who was seen flirting with Chas and making killer Cameron jealous in the process. You can see footage of that particular storyline below:

Soap fans may also have clocked him as Dan Burnett in an episode of Coronation Street in 2013.

But he’s probably best known for his four-year stint as Cameron Clark on Hollyoaks, where he was a one-time love interest for Lisa Hunter, played by played by Gemma Atkinson. The same Gemma Atkinson who now plays Carly Hope on Emmerdale. Small world, eh?
