The "Life on Mars" star has signed up to the ITV soap, and while details of his character are being kept under wraps for now, his alter-ego will go head-to-head with Cain Dingle - played by Jeff Hordley - this spring.

Dean said: "I have always loved Emmerdale and am thrilled to be joining the cast.

"As a Yorkshire lad I have always watched the show and think that everything from the acting to the stories are consistently great and I can't wait to get stuck in."
