Emmerdale star 'begged for a role' TELEVISION.

Byline: MIRROR REPORTER

EMMERDALE newcomer Jake Roche has reportedly claimed that he "begged" producer Gavin Blyth for a role on the serial.

The young actor, son of Shane Richie and Coleen Nolan, was previously turned down for the parts of Aaron Livesy and Adam Barton.

He explained on This Morning: "I did audition a few times [for other roles] and missed out on them, and then I went to Gavin's house, the producer, and begged him on his front door to give me a part and I'm finally here."

Roche finally landed a role as teenager Isaac Nuttall, who will arrive in the Yorkshire village as a love interest for Hannah Barton.

He revealed of his opening storyline: "My first day filming was interesting as it was a bit of a kissing scene [with Hannah] so I was straight in at the deep end."
