Emmerdale Kelli Hollis. The pair will play the roles of Dales newcomers Ali Spencer and Ruby Haswell, who will make their first appearance in the autumn.Ali is the sister of Rachel Breckle (Gemma Oaten) who made her debut on the soap last week when she arrived at the Dingles' home and had a showdown with Sam.

Ali arrives at the village with her two children after breaking up with her husband. She hopes to make a new start after leaving her husband for Ruby, much to the horror of her son Sean. A statement released by the soap said: "Ali is determined to make her new life in Emmerdale with Ruby work, regardless of Sean's reaction and the pleas of her determined ex-husband to give their marriage another go. When faced with the reality of Ali's baggage, does Ruby really feel the same?"

Speaking of the casting, Hollis said: "As a Leeds girl myself, getting a role as a new regular character for Emmerdale in my home town is a dream come true. I'm really excited to be playing Ali."

Eyo said of her new role: "I'm over the moon and can't wait to get started. Being part of a show that I've grown up watching is amazing and Ruby is going to be a lot of fun to play."
