NEW face Darren arrives on the Dales to make a dodgy deal with Kim Tate – but where do you recognise him from?
Darren (portrayed by Kyle Pryor) arrived in the village to meet Kim Tate (Claire King) who is starting up her own stud farm.
However, Darren’s working history in breeding wasn’t so impressive as Dawn spotted a lie.

Kim ended their meeting and convinced Dawn to work for her.
Later, Darren made his way to The Woolpack and noticed a poker game going on.

But given Vinny’s current state of mind after Liv’s death and his past with his gambling-addicted father, could this game get out of hand?
