Coronation Street have cast former Emmerdale actress Zoe Lambert in a new role.

The actress, who played lawyer Rachel Whatmore on the ITV soap between 2003 – 2005, has signed up to appear in some Corrie episodes later this year.


Zoe is due to start filming this week and will appear on screen in early June.

Insiders tell The Sun it's a short run of episodes and the character she will play is being kept under wraps.

Rachel was a firm favourite with Emmerdale fans during her time on the soap.

Her character was a solicitor working for the Tate family.

She initially worked with Chris Tate (Peter Amory) to try and con his then-wife Charity Dingle out of her money.

The plan was for him to take his own life and frame Charity for his murder.

In another twist, Rachel became involved in a lesbian love affair with Chris' sister Zoe Tate (Leah Bracknell), before becoming embroiled in a shock love triangle plot with Zoe and Scott Windsor (Ben Freeman).

Rachel then called time on her and Zoe’s relationship and left the village in 2005.
