Cynthia Daggert and her son, Danny (Cleveland Campbell), only arrived in Emmerdale in June, but already their troubles are piling up. Life got seriously out of hand for the family when Cynthia's heavily pregnant daughter, Latisha (Danielle Henry), joined them. Meanwhile, Cynthia came to blows with Carol Wareing in The Woolpack and the misfortune continued when Latisha goes into labour before even finding her family. Luckily, Jason Kirk happened to be passing and found himself delivering the baby.

After Carol Wareing had shown the family the door at the B&B, they were taken in by Bernice (Samantha Giles) and Ashley Thomas (John Middleton). However, the presence of Latisha's new baby jeopardised this arrangement, adding to Cynthia's trials. "Cynthia was unaware that Bernice has suffered a miscarriage," Kay continued "She only found out after asking if Latisha and the baby can stay and she's absolutely mortified. So Cynthia told the kids to look for anything going, and when Danny found an unused holiday cottage, Cynthia reluctantly moved the family in as squatters - although she really didn't want to break the law." However, the police soon arrived at the cottage following a tip-off. When Cynthia discovered it was Carol who gave them the information, the pair's already stormy relationship reached flashpoint and they came to blows in The Woolpack.

I’ve told the producers how happy I am and how much I love the job. After years of working in London it’s great to be able to go home after work.

Latisha Daggert, played by Danielle Henry, made her first appearance on 9 July 2001. [9] Henry auditioned for the role five times before she was cast. She told the Daily Record's Francine Cohen: "I couldn't believe I'd got it. I was convinced I hadn't. She's such a great character with loads of potential. It's fantastic." [9] Henry admitted that she was "petrified" while filming her first scenes in which her character gives birth. [9] Latisha becomes involved with Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley), leading Henry to state that she must be "fatally attracted to bad boys". [9] Henry thought her character liked Cain because he brought excitement to her life. She told Cohen that the romance was likely "to end in tears" as Latisha had a baby to look after and could not just drop everything to be with Cain. [9] Cohen observed that with "an embarrassing crush" on her gay best friend, a violent former boyfriend and debts, Latisha "has had more highs and lows in her first year in Emmerdale than a big dipper". [9] In July 2002, it was announced that members of the Daggert and Reynolds family were being written out. [10] Henry and co-star Kay Purcell, who played Latisha's mother Cynthia Daggert departed, while Danny Daggert (Cleveland Campbell) remained in the serial. [11] After departing in 2002, Henry reprised the role for a brief time in August 2006 to facilitate Campbell's departure. [12] A writer from the Manchester Evening News described Latisha as a "downtrodden single mum". [13]

After leaving her abusive boyfriend Paul Cooke (Lee Hartney), a pregnant Latisha joins her family in Emmerdale. Jason Kirk (James Carlton) finds Latisha in labour by the side of the road and helps deliver her son in the back of his van. She names the baby Kirk (Alexander Fothergill) after him. She and Jason become close friends. Paul gatecrashes Kirk's christening and causes a fight when her brother, Danny Daggert learns what he did to Latisha. Paul tries to reconcile with Latisha and she almost goes back to Bradford with him, until he punches Jason. After Jason leaves the village, Latisha realises Cain Dingle likes her. She ends up in debt to Charity Tate (Emma Atkins) after she and Cain steal one of Charity's credit cards, and Cain leaves Latisha to pay the bill. Latisha is caught stealing a present for Kirk's birthday, leading her mother, Cynthia Daggert to throw her out of their house. Latisha moves in with Cain's family and his stepmother Lisa Dingle (Jane Cox) tries to get her and Cynthia talking. While out shopping with Danny and Cynthia, Latisha puts a pair of sunglasses into Kirk's pushchair. Cynthia gets blamed for taking the sunglasses when Latisha leaves the pushchair with her. Latisha and Cain's relationship ends when he develops feelings for Angie Reynolds (Freya Copeland), and Latisha moves back in with her family. Jason returns and asks Latisha and her family to move to Lisbon with him, where he is working as a DJ. Latisha, Kirk and Cynthia go with Jason, but Danny decides to stay in the village. A few years later, Latisha returns and persuades Danny to move to Portugal. She also gets revenge on Cain by seducing him and then kneeing him in the groin. Latisha says her goodbyes to Danny and their cousin, Toni Daggert (Kerry Stacey) and returns to Portugal. Danny follows her several days later.

Classification Former; regular

Ray Mullan was best known for his relationship with Louise Appleton (Emily Symons). He first appeared as a gangster who had Cain Dingle beaten up. He was then announced as the mystery new buyer of Mill Cottage. He seemed keen to help Ashley Thomas (John Middleton) in the church and all that he appeared to have was his dog – Bolan. Rodney Blackstock (Patrick Mower) didn't like Ray at first, as Ray had beat him to the purchase of Mill Cottage.

Ray started growing closer to Louise during 2002 and they started going out. But it was obvious that Ray had a darker, more menacing side to him. He got involved with Scott Windsor (Ben Freeman) in a car scam, which was run by one of his right hand men, Tony. But Tony soon disappeared after Ray and Scott talked. Another example of Ray's dodgy side was when he got involved with Chris Tate (Peter Amory) and his wife, Charity (Emma Atkins), through Tate Haulage. He wanted certain goods to be transported, but Charity and Terry Woods (Billy Hartman) soon found out that there were more than just goods in the truck. They discovered that Ray had been bringing illegal immigrants into the country. When Charity confronted Ray, his nasty streak appeared when he pinned Charity up against the wall and threatened her. Despite all this, Louise continued to turn a blind eye to his activities unaware that Ray was hiding more than just his dodgy deals from his girlfriend, he had also hidden the fact that he had diabetes. He proposed to her in September 2002, but she turned him down.

The storyline leading up to Ray's departure started rather simply, with Ray comforting Louise after a stalker started terrorising her. As the ordeal progressed Ray continued to comfort Louise, helping her as she got freaky phone calls, expensive gifts and lingerie through the post. Eventually the situation got so bad that just before Christmas, Ray proposed that he and Louise emigrate to Italy and she agreed but not before leaving a message on her stalker's phone before she left. On the way to the airport, Ray's phone started ringing and she discovered that Ray had two phones and that one phone had a new voicemail message. Despite his attempts to stop her listening to the message, Louise did and heard her own voice. She realised that her stalker was right under her nose the whole time – it was Ray. As Ray started driving erratically, he explained his reasons for stalking her and the car crashed into a ditch. Ray was unconscious, but Louise managed to escape and ran to the village. Ray followed her though and they returned to Mill Cottage and trying to stop him following her, she grabbed a vase and hit Ray with it, knocking him back down the stairs and breaking his neck. Louise managed to cover up his murder and persuaded the police that someone must have broken into the house and killed Ray.
