Emmerdale spoilers: Mark Moraghan joins the cast to wreak havoc on Lawrence White's life

There's going to be a new face in the Dales fairly soon - veteran soap star Mark Moraghan is joining as Tim Richards!

Mark Moraghan has been announced as the newest cast member of Emmerdale!

Whilst you may recognise his face from fellow soaps Coronation Street, Brookside and Holby City, you might recognise his voice as being the narrator of children's TV show Thomas & Friends.

The Liverpudlian actor has signed up to the Dales as Tim Richards, who was briefly mentioned on the soap last week as a mystery caller on a radio station.

Tim is the uncle of Chrissie White, the brother of her biological father John Richards who rang up the local radio station that Lawrence was appearing on last week and accused him of murdering John.

He managed to shout out: "Lawrence White killed my brother, he's a murderer!" before the radio presenter hastily ended the call.

But this got many fans wondering what this meant... Especially as Lawrence proceeded to look VERY shifty.

Mark starred in Corrie in 2015 as Adrian Mortimer, a love interest for Eileen Grimshaw who she met online.

Their short-lived fling was sadly over after two months, as Eileen's son Todd maliciously set up a fake profile to lure her away from happiness.

Tim will be arriving in the village next month after Lawrence tries to track him down.

We can NOT wait to see what drama unfolds...
