Suzanne Shaw’s over the moon at signing a year’s contract to star in ITV soap Emmerdale. She starts February 15th and will commute ooop north from London to work in the Dales. Speaking at the Vauxhall Ice Skate event, where Paloma Faith, George Lamb, Coco Sumner and Mr Hudson span the tunes, Suzanne told me: “It’s brilliant news to have got the role. I haven’t got my scripts yet but I hope that my character will mix things up a bit. I’m hoping the commute isn’t too difficult but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.”
The blonde also admitted it made her laugh that former bandmate Kym Marsh was the Queen of Corrie and she’s just getting going in Emmerdale. “Who’d have thought it eh,” she said. “There’s no competition between us though – before everyone makes assumptions.” I didn’t say a word, Suze!
