When Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick) heads to Hotten for a night on the tiles she’s delighted to attract the attention of a handsome young gentleman. With love low on her list, ever since her infatuation with her friend and colleague Rhona, she’s quick to take him home.
The mood is shattered when her willing and very fresh-faced date Kirin (Adam Fielding) admits he’s only seventeen. Shocked at his age but also staggered he’s Rakesh’s young son, suddenly it is all too close to home for Vanessa. But will Vanessa’s heart start to rule her head where Kirin is concerned?
Commented Adam Fielding: “I am thrilled to be joining Emmerdale as Kirin. He’s only seventeen but he’s a cool and confident guy and isn’t going to let his age stop him where Vanessa is concerned.”
Adam will first appear in Emmerdale from the 21st August as a regular character.
