  New Emmerdale stars arrive with a bang
Updated 07 November 2001, 20.45
The new Emmerdale family watch their debut
The newest Emmerdale family made an unusual entrance to the programme, crashing their car as they arrived at their new home in the Dales.

But for once, the story of the actors is as interesting as the soap plotline itself.

Fact File
The new family
Dad Phil - Mark Jardine
Mum Jess - Dee Whitehead
Maggie - Ruth Abram
Lucy - Elspeth Brodie
Craig - Jason Hain
The family were picked from thousands who took part in the TV Soapstars search earlier this year.

To mark their first appearance, they then appeared in a live Soapstars Special after Emmerdale, hosted by Carol Vorderman.

Stormy past

The family have certainly had a stormy past. We found out that Lucy and Craig are the children of Jess, and Maggie is Phil's daughter.

And from the arguments on their first programme, it seems as if they don't exactly get on!

The family will become the new management team at the holiday village.
