Comic Hannah George is to guest star in two episodes of Emmerdale next month, as part of a "crucial storyline".

Radio Times reports that the episodes will air on June 25 and 26.

George did not reveal details of her character but said: "It's so exciting to be a pivotal part of such a crucial storyline."

When asked if she would include her experiences on the show in her stand-up routine, she replied: "Honestly the whole cast and crew were so wonderful to work with I would only be able to do five minutes about how much I love them. Come to think of it, that sounds like it might be quite funny."
