Scottish actor Lawrence Robb is set to take on the role of Mackenzie.

Lawrence said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be moving into Emmerdale village as Mackenzie.

“I’ve had so much fun playing around with the character already, and to do it in Britain’s most famous village is just the cherry on top.

“I couldn’t be further from ‘Mac’ in real life, so playing him will no doubt have its challenges, but I’m more than up for the ride!

“I can’t wait to don my wellies and wreak some havoc.”

Paige Sandhu will play Meena, who causes a stir with sister Manpeet upon her arrival.

Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker) is weary of her sibling’s intentions after they previously suffered a falling out.

Paige said: “Meena is such a fun and complex character to play and I’m really looking forward to seeing how people react to her.”
