Craig is the oldest of Maggie’s children. He supported his parents during the break up of their marriage. Craig is lazy, but still considers others. He loves Maggie and Lucy, and tries to get on with Phil.
Craig appeared with the rest of his family in November 2001. He wasn’t happy with the living arrangements, but that was soon made up for when he took a look around the village and was impressed by Chloe.
After Chloe started working at the holiday village he flirted with her, making Scott a little jealous. But Chloe gave him the brush off.
In 2002, when Jess left he was a little upset. Craig had wanted the new family to work out – but it hadn’t.
After Maggie had a fling with Rodney, and Phil left, Lucy and Craig left for Scotland with their mother.
About Jason Hain: Jason was one of the Soapstars winners who impressed the judges with his amateur acting skills. He had no other acting credits before joining Emmerdale.
Has just left his alcoholic wife to come and join Maggie in Emmerdale. The move has been very sudden and he finds himself dealing with a new and unexpected environment. He is awkward with Craig and Lucy, still trying to find his feet in the new family set-up.
