Nicola Wheeler (born Nicola Hodge; 4th April 1974 in Burnley, Lancashire) is an English actress who has portrayed Nicola King in Emmerdale since January 2001.

She was born Nicola Hodge, but raised with the name Nicola Palmer. Becoming an actress meant Nicola then had to change Palmer as her last name, due to there already being an actress with the same name.

Career[]

In 1999, she appeared in fellow ITV soap Coronation Street as Melanie Tindel. She then joined Emmerdale as Nicola Blackstock in 2001 and served for five years, before returning in 2007 now called Nicola De Souza.

Wheeler appeared on the Sky One reality show Cirque de Celebrité but was voted out on the fifth week by Blazin' Squad member Kenzie. She appeared in the Halifax Pantomime as the Wicked Witch.

Wheeler was also the celebrity guest, along with Malandra Burrows at the Leeds Dogs Trust Waggy Walks event at Temple Newsam on 3rd October 2010. Wheeler opened the walk and then completed the 5 km walk with her dog Jasper.

In March 2015, Wheeler gave birth to a boy named Jude.
