Olympic gold medal-winning track cyclist Victoria Pendleton will make a cameo appearance in Emmerdale next Friday, July 4.

Radio Times reports that for the relaunch of Home Farm, Jimmy (Nick Miles) dons cycling gear as he gives Pendleton the tour.

However, the Olympian's arrival arouses jealousy in Nicola (Nicola Wheeler). 

Pendleton said of her cameo: "Appearing on a soap is something I never expected to have the opportunity to do. So when the chance came up I thought it would be really good fun, and my mum is a massive Emmerdale fan so that made the decision very easy."
