Emmerdale newcomer Ella Hart is set to cause trouble in the village when she seduces her own daughter’s boyfriend Adam Barton.
Although trying to rejuvenate her relationship with ex-husband Declan Macey (Jason Merrells), she finds herself attracted to Adam.
Adam, who also works for Declan as well as dates his daughter, has a polite drink with Ella, who is feeling neglected by her on/off spouse.
But when Ella decides to make a move on Adam, she is pleasantly surprised when he responds.
The sexy scenes end up becoming the beginning of an affair between the two, which will no doubt cause devastation should it ever become public knowledge.
Actor Thomas – whose older brother Ryan Thomas plays Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street, told Take It Easy magazine: ‘Well, it’s every boy’s dream to be chased by an older woman.
‘Adam’s been going out with her daughter Mia for a while and he sees Ella being neglected by her husband. He feels sorry for her.
‘He’s quite flattered. He just reacts how the majority of boys his age would.
‘Even though he’s got Mia to think about, it’s offered to him on a plate and he doesn’t really know how he should handle it.’
Although long divorced from Mia’s father Declan Macey, Ella left her life as a successful businesswoman in Singapore to try and make another go of things with her ex.
With their daughter in tow, Ella stunned Declan when they arrived on the doors of Home Farm in November – where they have been living ever since.
But despite Ella’s efforts to rebuild her relationship with Declan, her fling with Adam doesn’t suggest she’s not quite ready to commit to her former spouse. Agencies
