Emmerdale fans could be saying goodbye to Harriet Finch (played by Katherine Dow Blyton) and hello to the new village vicar. It comes after the soap announced two new arrivals, one of which is wearing a dog collar and the other is his son. But what does this mean for those currently serving the local parishioners?
The Dales are set to welcome newcomers Charles (Kevin Mathurin) and his son Ethan (Emile John).
Fans will soon learn that Charles is a vicar and will be an instant hit with those living in the village.
He will become a great support to Harriet, but little else has been discussed as to his role within the church.
As for Ethan, he has been described as intelligent and has apparently inherited his father’s strong sense of justice and worked hard to care himself a successful law career.
They’re a close pair, so when Charles finds Ethan has been wrongly accused of a crime, his intense need to fight injustice means it’s not long before they have a run-in with the Dingles.
Viewers will see Charles and Ethan appear on screen in upcoming months.
Emmerdale Producer Sophie Roper said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Kevin and Emile to the show.
“This dynamic new father and son duo, are set to send shockwaves through the village as they find themselves embroiled in the heart of a thought-provoking story with one of our most loved families.
“With two actors of such great calibre, they’re certainly set to make their mark on the Dales.”
Actor Kevin said: “I am over the moon to be joining the cast of Emmerdale.
“The show has always been a family favourite and my mum is a huge fan.
“The cast and crew have all been so welcoming and I am really looking forward to Charles’ storylines in the Village.”

And Emile added: “Being given the opportunity to play Ethan is an absolute dream come true.
“I feel a tremendous sense of responsibility in articulating his struggle with truth and authenticity and I can only hope that the audience fully engage with him in the same way I have.”
But what does this mean for Harriet?
Perhaps the truth about Malone’s (Mark Womack) death will be revealed and Harriet will flee the village, thus meaning Charles will take over religious proceedings.
As for Ethan, what could possibly be the wrong accused crime?
As a lawyer himself, it will be interesting to see which Dingle his path crosses with.
Viewers will also have to wait and see whether any more of their family arrie.
Emmerdale airs weekday evenings at 7pm on ITV.
