Speaking to OK magazine, Anderson declined to confirm the identity of the guy in question, but said that he will be keen to woo Alicia in upcoming episodes.

Anderson said: "[It's] someone in the village, and I can't say who! But she is pursued by this person - in a very nice way.

"She's not sure about her feelings, but the attention is nice, and of course it will be fascinating to see how David reacts to that!"

The actress also promised that viewers can expect Alicia to look more "classy" as she settles into her new job at Home Farm.

Anderson commented: "She goes to Scotland on a business trip and when she gets back she has a new energy and a slightly new look, with a bit of red lipstick. Before now, everything's been a bit orange!

"This new look's a little bit classier, as she's slightly going up in the world. It's still Alicia, of course, but in a business environment, so you'll still get her in tight dresses, but not quite as short, and not quite as low!"

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
