Russ in Emmerdale is set to cause havoc in the coming weeks, as he gives Wendy Posner a shock.

Wendy, played by Susan Cookson, has recently attended her mother-in-law’s funeral, but when her abusive ex Russ turns up she’s thrown for a loop.

Not only that but Russ is demanding the 50 grand his mum left Wendy in her will, and will stop at nothing to get it.

Actor Rob Jarvis plays Russ, and he’s a familiar face. But where have you seen him before?

In a tweet he said: “Start filming @emmerdale today… in for a little while…”

Rob’s tweet hints that Russ will be hanging around for a little while.

And that means all of Wendy’s ghosts from the past coming back to her haunt her.
