Former Birds Of A Feather actress Pauline Quirke has joined the cast of Emmerdale as Jackson Walsh's mother Hazel.

The 50-year-old - who played Sharon Theodopolopodous for nine years alongside Linda Robson in the BBC One sitcom - begins filming at the soap's Leeds home at the end of next month and her larger-than-life character soon finds herself at the epicentre of "an enormous and gripping storyline".

Free-spirited teacher Hazel arrives in the Dales on a whistlestop visit to see her son Jackson (Marc Silcock), who is currently being wooed by troubled teen Aaron Livesy (Danny Miller).

However, as one newly-single villager takes a keen interest in her, Hazel's jetset lifestyle is halted when she becomes embroiled in a "hugely dramatic" plot that affects the lives of both her son and his lover.

Speaking of her signing, Quirke said: "I'm really looking forward to joining the show, my mum was a fan back when it was called Emmerdale Farm, so it's always been a part of my life. The show has really moved on, it's consistently good, there are some great characters and great storylines, I've especially loved Aaron's story."

She added: "I've never done anything like this before so it's something different for me and I'm very happy to be a part of it."

Series producer Gavin Blyth commented: "I am absolutely delighted that Pauline will be joining Emmerdale at such an exciting time. She is a fantastic actor who I know will do justice to this character."

He went on: "Alongside Aaron and Jackson, she will be at the centre of an enormous and gripping storyline this autumn/winter. One to really look forward to."

Quirke's other acting credits include Skins, Casualty, Cold Blood, The Bill and My Family.

More recently, she starred as DS Mary Jane Croft in a second series of BBC One's daytime drama Missing.

Aaron's Story 27th of May 2010

Watch it on Youtube or download it from Megaupload!

As Aaron continues with his community service, he's thrown when Wayne asks him about being gay, relaying that he read about him in the paper.

Aaron firmly denies Wayne's suggestion, insisting that he only claimed he was gay in the hope that the judge would issue a lighter sentence. Still denying that he's gay, Aaron shocks himself at the depths he'll go in order to avoid being 'found out' in the wider world.

Wayne encourages Aaron to chat up a group of girls if what he says is true. Wayne's amused, though, when Aaron crashes and burns under pressure.

Later, as Wayne and Aaron fix a fence, Wayne's adamant that he doesn't believe that Aaron's straight. With that, Wayne shoves the fence post into Aaron, causing him to fall back into the water. Will Aaron take his revenge on Wayne? 

Aaron's humiliated after falling into the lake but when Gary intervenes, Aaron claims that his fall was an accident as he tripped backwards. Wayne smirks as Aaron's forced to change into dry clothes. Back in the village, Adam's sorry to hear that Aaron's had a rough time at community service but insists that they now have more reason to go out.

The pair head to Bar West and Adam points out that the evening's not as bad as Aaron thought it would be. Aaron reluctantly agrees - until he spots Jackson.

When Aaron tries to apologise to Jackson for what happened between them, Jackson's firm - he isn't interested and would never want to be with someone who's violent.

As Adam and Aaron prepare to leave, Aaron's gutted to see Jackson kissing another guy. Will Aaron be able to convince Jackson to give him another chance?
