You might have seen him in another soap just one year ago.
On Friday (11 August), show bosses announced that Ned Porteous would be joining the show as newcomer Tom Waterhouse, a new business client for Charity Tate.
Speaking about his new soap job, he gushed: “I was really delighted to secure the role of Tom. I’ve never played a character like this before and I am very excited to see how his story develops!”
Tom is introduced to ‘Emmerdale’ fans when Charity reveals she’s landed a new business client, eventually fighting over her mum, Debbie, about who should clinch the deal with the soap newbie.
He’s one of two new arrivals on the scene, with his right-hand man, Graham Foster, to be played by Andrew Scarborough.
