Ex-Emmerdale actress Adele Silva has joined Hollyoaks for a guest stint alongside CBeebies star Ben Faulks, and details of their storyline has been revealed.

It turns out they'll play a major part in Peri Lomax's teen pregnancy drama...

Adele will join forces with fellow newcomer Ben for the part of Chester's newest arrivals, Angela and Mark Brown - a childless married couple who plan on adopting Peri and Tom Cunningham's baby.

Sounds like the perfect solution right?! Wrong! This is soap-land, and nothing is ever plain sailing.

Viewers will witness a twist when Tom gets cold feet, refusing to give his baby up for adoption, which means serious heartache for Angela and Mark, who are childless and desperate for a family.

Adele, who made a name for herself as Kelly Windsor in Emmerdale from 1993 to 2011, had a difficult time herself when it came to starting a family. The actress welcomed a daughter with fiancé Oliver Farber in March, however before their new arrival, the couple had endured the agony of three consecutive miscarriages.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, Adele said: "I had three miscarriages and not the easiest time. The reason I've been so vocal about this is often you see all this, 'My pregnancy joy' and 'I've had an amazing pregnancy' and it's not like that for everyone.

"I think it's quite nice to say, 'No, I haven't had a good time but there is a product at the end cooking in there.'"

Adele and Ben will be on-screen from July.
