Christine is best known for starring as councillor Glynis Hardy in Emmerdale from 2001 to 2005.

The source explained: “Christine will play the wife of corrupt Detective Gordon Lennox.

“The detective was involved in getting Stu wrongly found guilty and put behind bars for 27 years for the murder of a young girl more than three decades ago.
“It will just be a small part but Christine will first appear as Margaret Lennox next week, after Stu manages to track down the detective and his family.”
Christine was famed for ruffling feathers on Emmerdale as local councillor Glynis in the mid-noughties.
Fans will remember how her character embarked on an affair with married Eric Pollard before they were outed in public by his scorned wife Gloria.
