EMMERDALE bosses have cast Peaky Blinders hunk Jack Parr for a major new storyline.
The actor – who played Dougie Bill in the last series of the gritty historical drama – will make his debut in the ITV soap next week.
He will play a new character called Jordan who becomes embroiled in the lives of several villagers.
A source revealed: “Jordan will arrive in the village in a shocking way and end up pitting neighbour against neighbour.
“It’s going to be a dramatic storyline and take on a serious issue.”
Jack will also soon be seen in a major new series from Apple TV called Masters of the Air.

And the star isn’t the only actor from Masters arriving in soapland this week.
Coronation Street has cast Jon-Paul Bell for a dastardly new role too.
He will arrive on the cobbles tonight as Ben Chancellor after being summoned by Imran Habeeb.
Ben is a dodgy paralegal who has no qualms about manufacturing evidence to help his clients get the results they want.
In Friday night’s episode of the soap, viewers watched Imran call Ben for help in his custody battle against Abi Franklin.
He wants Ben to find proof that Abi is using drugs again so he can win custody of baby Alfie for him and soon to be wife Toyah Battersby.
