Emmerdale newcomers Kelli Hollis and Alicya Eyo have promised to ‘liven things up’ when they arrive in the village.

Kelli (pictured) plays Ali Spencer, Rachel Breckle’s younger sister, who arrives in the village with her lover Ruby Haswell (Alicya) and her two teenage children hoping to start a new life together after leaving her husband.

Kelli told the Emmerdale website: “We’re here to liven things up.”

Alicya added: “We do come in and cause a bit of a stir.”

Ali’s teenage son Sean is not happy about moving to the village and he is going to cause the couple lots of trouble, but that’s not their only problem.

Kelli revealed: “It’s not going to be an easy start for Ali. Sister Rachel’s got a bit of a beef with Nicola and Jimmy.

“Nicola wants to move into this cottage and Rachel brings Ali to the village to look at the cottage which obviously gets right up Nicola’s a**e.”

The former Shameless actress added she is loving being a part of the ITV1 soap and working with Luke and Daisy, who play her children Sean and Amelia.

She said: “They’re fantastic. We’ve absolutely just fallen in love with them.”
