Emmerdale’s Charley Webb looks worlds away from Debbie in new police officer role

Charley Webb looked worlds away from her Emmerdale character Debbie Dingle recently as she was pictured filming scenes for ITV's new drama about The Yorkshire Ripper.

The actress, 34, looked totally different as she donned a vintage police officer uniform complete with a shirt, tie and hat for the scenes.

It comes after Charley revealed earlier this year that she had quit Emmerdale after 19 years of playing Debbie on the hit ITV soap.

Charley wore her brunette locks into a sweptback neat bun as she was seen in character handing out missing person flyers during filming in Leeds earlier this month.

This isn't the only soap star to be involved as Coronation Street's Katherine Kelly is also said to be filming scenes for the ITV drama.

It comes after Charley announced two new projects she is filming over the summer after her Emmerdale exit.

Taking to Instagram in March, the actress admitted she was "excited" to be back on screen and shared a picture of herself at a costume fitting.

Sharing an excited mirror selfie, Charley penned: "Costume fitting today for my new job I’m excited for the next 2 projects i’m filming over the summer and to get back on screen."

Charley's 563K followers, former co-stars and celebrity pals were quick to comment on the post as they shared their excitement.

The actress' brother and Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas said: "Yes babe x" followed with a heart and clap emoji.

Emmerdale's Victoria Sugden star Isabel Hodgins put: "So exciting xxx" with a star emoji.

While Michelle Keegan sweetly added: "Yaaaaay! Go on gurl" followed with clapping emojis.

It comes after Charley revealed earlier this year that she had quit Emmerdale after 19 years of playing Debbie on the ITV soap.

In January, the actress finally addressed rumours that she had quit the long-running ITV series as she answered a question from a fan during a Q&A session she participated in on Instagram Stories.

Posting a photo of herself with husband and fellow Emmerdale star, Matthew, and their three children Buster, 11, Bowie, six, and Ace, two, Charley explained her decision behind leaving the soap.

“This is always my most asked question but I’ve never answered it before because I’ve never wanted to make a big deal of it,” she captioned.
