Emmerdale Actor Plays Omar Barkri

And he confides in the Star: “I try to stay as far away from the police as possible now because of all the trouble I get. I used to have a beard and wore a scarf which made me look Arabic. After the London bombings, I was stopped and searched several times on the Tube.” Samuel is clear front runner for the part.

But with Noel Edmonds thought to be interested in the role, and the show’s Amos due a come back, nothing is guaranteed…

Stop Press: The Mirror says Amos, also known as Ronald Magill, is dead. He leaves £1,381,029, a green Ford Galaxy and a beard. Omar Bakri is being notified.
