Actors Anthony Quinlan and Joe Gill have been cast in Emmerdale as two new members of the Barton family, Pete and Finn.

The characters are the sons of single father James Barton (Bill Ward) and brothers of troublemaker Ross (Michael Parr).

Commenting on his new co-stars, Ward said: "The Barton boys are tremendous: feisty, strong willed, and a lot of fun to work with... I've thoroughly enjoyed the scenes we've had together thus far, and look forward to an awful lot more bad behaviour in the future."

Former Hollyoaks star Quinlan said of his casting: "I'm really excited to be part of Emmerdale as it's an iconic serial drama. I'm privileged to be working with such a great cast and crew on a fantastic production."

New co-star Gill added: "I'm very grateful to be given this opportunity. The cast and crew have been class with me so far and the fact I'm able to learn from these experienced professionals everyday is just brilliant.

"I'm hoping my character can contribute to how amazing the show is doing at the moment."
