Will Carole be 'The One' for Ashley? (© ITV)
The new character will appear on screens from Wednesday 23 July.
Speaking about her upcoming role, Tracy said: "It is a total delight to be playing Carole back in my home town of Leeds.
"She's funny and sexy with a dark secret...
"Ever since I played Trisha in Coronation Street, it's been a personal and professional ambition to work with the wonderful actors and writers of Emmerdale. I hope the public take to Carole as much as I have."
Carole will be introduced after Ashley is initially reluctant for his new lady to meet his friends, but Harriet stirs things up by texting Carole from Ashley's phone.
Harriet's meddling plot will suddenly backfire when Carole arrives in the village and Harriet realises she's jealous.
