Emmerdale star details 'uncomfortable' scenes as he discusses soap future

Dominic Brunt is finding his scenes on Emmerdale quite "uncomfortable" at the moment.

The ITV soap is airing some tough scenes between Dominic's character Paddy Kirk and Chas Dingle – played by Lucy Pargeter – at present, as the couple try and work through their relationship issues. Chas had an affair with Al behind Paddy's back, leaving him heartbroken when he found out and struggling to cope with it all.

The pair are now locked in a battle over their daughter, as they struggle through the split. Actor Dominic – who has been on the soap for over two decades – admits he found filming those scenes particularly tough.

Speaking on Loose Women, he said: "It was uncomfortable because Lucy is my friend and screaming in her face is not very nice."

He admits he never expected to be staying on the soap for so long and that everyone would be so welcoming.

"Anybody who comes there always says they didn’t expect it was going to be like this," he said of his time on the ITV soap so far, "I arrived 26 years ago expecting that I would find out all the cliques and politics, but it never arrived."

Dominic also creates his own horror movies, but insists his loyalties are with the ITV soap.

"My loyalties lie with Emmerdale, they really do. It takes about two to four years to get the funding together and sometimes films collapse and sometimes they get up and go forward but it can be a very tricky situation, but I don’t want to ever do one of them by halves, so I only do them every few years. I'm happy with Emmerdale and I really love it," he added.

It comes after Jane Hudson teased what will happen with Paddy and Chas in 2023.

The show's executive producer said: "We’re continuing our story with Chas and Paddy and how you navigate trying to be the best parents you can when your marriage is falling to pieces and one of you has had an affair.

"We’ll watch them both go on their journeys and it will be very serious and quite heartbreaking as we watch what happens to what were one of our favourite couples before we tore them apart, it’s fair to say."
