Coronation Street star Jane Danson has shared a loved-up birthday post to her Emmerdale star husband, Robert Beck, as he is set to return to the hit ITV soap after 24 years.

It was announced on Tuesday that viewers will be introduced to Harry next week, played by Robert, 55, who is a hard-hitting client of Nate Robinson's new business. Harry will be returning in future episodes as the Dingles get embroiled in his dodgy dealings. Nate will find himself out of his depth in the coming weeks when he becomes powerless to escape the dark underworld he has become caught up in and relies on his Dingle family for help.

It comes as Robert said of his Emmerdale return and new storyline: "I am thrilled to be working on Emmerdale again, it’s a great show that I have followed for years, with a fabulous cast. It has always had a special place in my heart.

"I had a fantastic time working on the show playing Gavin Ferris, 24 years ago. The cast and crew were so welcoming and of course, I met my wife because of that job so I have much to thank Emmerdale for! I’m looking forward to getting involved and to working with such a great bunch again."

Emmerdale producer, Laura Shaw, added: "We are thrilled to have Robert joining the Emmerdale family to play Harry. Dangerous and unpredictable, Harry will bring drama and peril to some of our most loved villagers, with some twists and turns along the way that our viewers really won't be expecting!"
