Emmerdale casts Mount Pleasant star Asan N'Jie as Jessie Grant's son Ellis

Emmerdale introduces a new character next week as Jessie Grant’s son Ellis makes a dramatic arrival in the village.

Show bosses have cast Mount Pleasant star Asan N’Jie in the role of Ellis, as the ITV soap starts to delve deeper into Jessie’s backstory.

Ellis is first introduced as a possible love interest for Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins) when they arrange a date.

When Ellis later shows his disloyalty by flirting with some other girls at The Woolpack, protective Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) jumps in to defend Victoria – sparking a nasty fight at the pub.

The brawl only stops when Jessie’s boyfriend Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) steps in to break it up, getting himself injured in the process.

Later on, just as Marlon is telling Jessie how he’s ended up bruised, he’s shocked as Ellis appears again and is revealed to be his girlfriend’s son.

As Ellis settles in, he has some big news for his mum – revealing that he’s decided against going back to university to do his teacher training.

With Ellis needing a place to stay, Marlon offers him the spare room at his house – but the big question is whether he’ll regret this kind offer.

During a moment alone, Ellis later questions Jessie (Sandra Marvin) about her relationship with Marlon – keen to know whether he’s aware of their secret.

A nervous Jessie reveals that she’ll only tell Marlon if she has to, but what are the pair hiding?

Emmerdale airs these scenes on Thursday, September 6 and Friday, September 7 on ITV.
