Cynthia Daggert and her son, Danny (Cleveland Campbell), only arrived in Emmerdale in June, but already their troubles are piling up. Life got seriously out of hand for the family when Cynthia's heavily pregnant daughter, Latisha (Danielle Henry), joined them. Meanwhile, Cynthia came to blows with Carol Wareing in The Woolpack and the misfortune continued when Latisha goes into labour before even finding her family. Luckily, Jason Kirk happened to be passing and found himself delivering the baby.

After Carol Wareing had shown the family the door at the B&B, they were taken in by Bernice (Samantha Giles) and Ashley Thomas (John Middleton). However, the presence of Latisha's new baby jeopardised this arrangement, adding to Cynthia's trials. "Cynthia was unaware that Bernice has suffered a miscarriage," Kay continued "She only found out after asking if Latisha and the baby can stay and she's absolutely mortified. So Cynthia told the kids to look for anything going, and when Danny found an unused holiday cottage, Cynthia reluctantly moved the family in as squatters - although she really didn't want to break the law." However, the police soon arrived at the cottage following a tip-off. When Cynthia discovered it was Carol who gave them the information, the pair's already stormy relationship reached flashpoint and they came to blows in The Woolpack.

On 12 December 2014, it was revealed that Carly would be returning to Emmerdale and that former Hollyoaks star, Gemma Atkinson had been tipped to play her.[3] On 7 January 2015, it was confirmed that Atkinson would be playing Carly and appearing from 11 March 2015.[4]

On 12 December 2014, The Sun reported that Carly would be returning in the new year and the role had been recast to be played by former Hollyoaks and Casualty star, Gemma Atkinson. The report stated how Carly would bring busier times for her father, Bob and his partner, Brenda Walker (Lesley Dunlop) after a quieter year. However, when questioned, an Emmerdale spokesperson did not comment on Atkinson's casting, but confirmed Carly would be returning.[3] On 7 January 2015, Emmerdale confirmed that Atkinson had been cast in the role of Carly and began filming in January 2015. Carly will return on-screen in March, after deciding that Bob has to make up for the time he missed out on when she was a child. In her time away from the village, Carly has been hit by several bad relationships and will be looking for love as she arrives to Emmerdale.[4] Atkinson commented on her new role, "I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of Emmerdale and I cannot wait to see what's in store for Carly. I hope you all enjoy watching her story unfold." Meanwhile, the show's executive producer, Kate Oates said, "I'm delighted to welcome Gemma to the cast. Her character Carly is sure to liven things up for Bob and Brenda and anyone who crosses her path."[4]

On 11 October 2015, it was revealed Atkinson had been offered another one-year contract with the show, keeping Carly on-screen for a further year. It was also revealed Carly would be involved in a big storyline in 2016. Speaking of her contract renewal, Atkinson said: "I'm there for the long term. I've signed for another year - and I'd love to stay for at least a few more. It's really flattering they want me to stay on. The feedback I've been getting from fans and the producers has been great. I’ve told the producers how happy I am and how much I love the job. After years of working in London it’s great to be able to go home after work. When I was in Casualty I was living in a hotel for three years. Now I can get back to Manchester so easily."[5]

Carly is Bob's daughter from his second marriage, to Barbara. She first appears in 2001, when Bob visits her and her brother Josh. She returns in 2006 as a teenager for her father's remarriage to Viv Hope (Deena Payne).

Ray Mullan[edit]

Ray Mullan
Emmerdale character
Portrayed by Seamus Gubbins
Duration 2001–2002
First appearance 26 September 2001
Last appearance 26 December 2002
Introduced by Steve Frost
Classification Former; regular

Ray Mullan was best known for his relationship with Louise Appleton (Emily Symons). He first appeared as the mystery new buyer of Mill Cottage. He seemed keen to help Ashley Thomas (John Middleton) in the church and all that he appeared to have was his dog – Bolan. Rodney Blackstock (Patrick Mower) didn't like Ray at first, as Ray had beat him to the purchase of Mill Cottage.

Ray started growing closer to Louise during 2002 and they started going out. But it was obvious that Ray had a darker, more menacing side to him. He got involved with Scott Windsor (Ben Freeman) in a car scam, which was run by one of his right hand men, Tony. But Tony soon disappeared after Ray and Scott talked. Another example of Ray's dodgy side was when he got involved with Chris Tate (Peter Amory) and his wife, Charity (Emma Atkins), through Tate Haulage. He wanted certain goods to be transported, but Charity and Terry Woods (Billy Hartman) soon found out that there were more than just goods in the truck. They discovered that Ray had been bringing illegal immigrants into the country. When Charity confronted Ray, his nasty streak appeared when he pinned Charity up against the wall and threatened her. Despite all this, Louise continued to turn a blind eye to his activities unaware that Ray was hiding more than just his dodgy deals from his girlfriend, he had also hidden the fact that he had diabetes. He proposed to her in September 2002, but she turned him down.

The storyline leading up to Ray’s departure started rather simply, with Ray comforting Louise after a stalker started terrorising her. As the ordeal progressed Ray continued to comfort Louise, helping her as she got freaky phone calls, expensive gifts and lingerie through the post. Eventually the situation got so bad that just before Christmas, Ray proposed that he and Louise emigrate to Italy and she agreed but not before leaving a message on her stalker's phone before she left. On the way to the airport, Ray's phone started ringing and she discovered that Ray had two phones and that one phone had a new voicemail message. Despite his attempts to stop her listening to the message, Louise did and heard her own voice. She realised that her stalker was right under her nose the whole time – it was Ray. As Ray started driving erratically, he explained his reasons for stalking her and the car crashed into a ditch. Ray was unconscious, but Louise managed to escape and ran to the village. Ray followed her though and they returned to Mill Cottage and trying to stop him following her, she grabbed a vase and hit Ray with it, knocking him back down the stairs and breaking his neck. Louise managed to cover up his murder and persuaded the police that someone must have broken into the house and killed Ray.
