Daz is a charming ex-marine who is quick to make friends with some of the local residents, but his presence in the village leaves Dan (Liam Fox) feeling conflicted.

As the story progresses, viewers will be left wondering whether Dan is unsettled by Daz's wayward reputation, or if he is merely jealous of his brother's instant popularity with the other villagers.

Speaking of his new role, Jordon commented: "ITV Studios in Leeds has always felt like a second home and I'm really looking forward to being back there, this time with the cast and crew of Emmerdale."

Emmerdale's series producer Kate Oates added: "We're delighted to see Mark return to Yorkshire and are so pleased to add Emmerdale to his vast list of TV credits. He will be a great addition and we are excited to start filming with him."

Jordon, best known for his role as PC Phil Bellamy in Heartbeat, will start filming at Emmerdale later this month and his first scenes will air in July.
