Suzanne Shaw Joins Emmerdale
Following in her ex-bandmates Kym Marsh’s footsteps, she’ll take on a soapland as Eve Birch, Edna Birch’s granddaughter whose charms gets the gents in tizzy.
Having only done a tiny bit of telly before we’re not sure how she’ll fare but she has done the West End so she’s had more acting experience than Kym when she started on Coronation Street.
Talking to The Sun, Shaw said, “I am so excited to be joining the cast of such a popular and long-standing show. It’s daunting to think I’ll be watched by millions but I can’t wait to get stuck in to country life.”
Producer Gavin Blyth hints that Shaw will be given some juicy storylines to play during her time on the farm, “Viewers can look forward to explosive storylines as Eve cranks up the heat.”
