Emmerdale's newcomer Claudette has already made a lasting impression as she arrived in the Dales on Wednesday (May 25).

The mother of Vicar Charles Anderson immediately clashed with Manpreet Sharma and was less than pleased when she discovered this was the woman her son is dating.

But fans may already recognise her as actress Flo Wilson has made an appearance in the soap before.

Back in 2012, Flo starred as Nurse Bradshaw who helped Zak Dingle when he was admitted to hospital across two episodes.

She has plenty of experience working in soaps as she has played three different roles in Coronation Street.

Her first appearance was as childminder Kerry Matthews in 1998 and she later played an unnamed nurse in 2008 and 2009.

She went on to star as midwife Claire Hinton in 2010 and once again in 2014, delivering Fiz Brown's daughter Hope Stape.

Her other appearances include Channel 4 shows Hollyoaks and Shameless, Waterloo Road,

Speaking ahead of her arrival, Flo said: "I feel blessed that I was chosen to play Claudette and I hope to make the Emmerdale family proud of the work that I will do."

Discussing his on-screen mother's arrival, Charles star Kevin Mathurin said: "I've had the privilege of working with Flo before, so when I saw her name on the sheet I knew she'd be perfect to bring Claudette to life.

"Flo is a wonderful soul, an amazing actress and is already settling in."

While executive producer Jane Hudson promised Claudette will cause a stir, saying: "We are delighted to welcome Flo Wilson to the cast of Emmerdale.

"Her talent and experience will bring a new dimension to the show, and we can't wait for viewers to see her in action. She's certainly going to ruffle feathers in the Anderson household."
