Fat Friend on the Farm: Gaynor Faye joins Emmerdale as glamorous newcomer Megan

Shaking%20up%20the%20village:%20Gaynor%20Faye%20has%20signed%20up%20to%20join%20Emmerdale%20as%20glamorous%20newcomer%20Megan%20Macey

Shaking up the village: Gaynor Faye has signed up to join Emmerdale as glamorous newcomer Megan Macey

She played a Jewish actress with low self-esteem who married a vicar and threw Ann Summers parties to earn a living.

But Gaynor Faye is no longer that Fat Friend struggling with her body issues, but a glamorous and intimidating woman set to shake up rural Yorkshire life.

Because the actress, 40 has just signed up to join soap Emmerdale to play newcomer Megan Macy, who is set to 'turns the heads' of the men in the village.

Gaynor, who starred in the ITV comedy Fat Friends from 2000 to 2005, will appear on screens from early next year.

And she is no stranger to being in a soap having starred as Judy Mallett from 1995 to 1999.

She joins Emmerdale as Macey, a 'fiercely ambitious, intimidating and oozing self-confidence' who arrives in the village after she gets a call from estranged half-brother Declan, played by Jason Merrells.

Gaynor, who also won Dancing On Ice in 2006, said: 'I'm incredibly excited to be joining Emmerdale and being a Yorkshire lass myself, filming in Leeds, my home town, is the icing on the cake!

'The women on Emmerdale are strong and feisty, and I can't wait to play my character, who's fun but extremely driven and will stop at nothing to get her own way.

'She's quite different to many of the roles that I have played before and hopefully will take people by surprise.'

Northern lass: Faye also starred in Coronation Street as Judy Mallett from 1995 to 1999

Emmerdale series producer Stuart Blackburn said: 'I'm thrilled to welcome Gaynor to the show.

'This is an exciting new character for us and a new era at Home Farm. Megan will quickly remind Declan she has a shrewd ability to get what she wants, when she wants it.'

I was puzzled Gaynor was never used backstage by DOI - she was so popular with the public but very glad to see her in Emmerdale - she should be a good addition to the show
