Emmerdale: Dominic Power says Cameron is in love with Debbie AND Chas Dingle!
Talk about roll your own…
However, Dominic Power, who of course plays Cameron, reckons that his character is in love with both ladies, but his cake-and-eat-it love life is in danger of coming crashing down rather spectacularly when Debbie’s dad Cain (Jeff Hordley) smells a rat in upcoming episodes.
Cain is alerted to the fact that his potential future son-in-law may be playing away when he discovers that Cameron isn’t in Jersey visiting his kids, which is what he told Debbie (Charley Webb) he would be doing while she’s on a trip to Paris with her daughter Sarah and her ex, Andy Sugden…
It was of course Cameron’s idea that Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) accompany Debbie and Sarah on the trip, but far from being altruistic, Cameron’s motivation for sacrificing his place so Andy could go was so that he could take Chas away for a dirty weekend. Lucky moo.
Speaking to Soaplife about the complex plot, and how Cameron comes to know that Cain might be on to his secret, Dominic said, “Cameron’s alerted when his son calls his mobile and leaves a voicemail saying he tried to ring him in Emmerdale and Cain answered.
“Cameron tells Chas that Cain knows he’s not in Jersey and they panic. He knows he can no longer pretend that it’ll all be OK in the end.”
And when asked, “What’s Cameron more afraid of: Cain beating him up, or Debbie finding out he’s cheating on her?” Dominic replied, “Debbie finding out is far worse for him…
“He thinks that he can handle Cain by pulling the wool over his eyes and telling him more lies.
“What’s working in his favour is that everyone knows Cain’s a bit of a stirrer anyway.”
Next, when asked if Cameron does really love – rather than just lust after –Chas, Dominic said, “Yes he does – but I also think he’s still in love with Debbie.
“It’s pretty much a case of him loving two women at once. When he’s at home with Debbie, he shuts off about the thing with Chas.
“Then when he’s with Chas, he deceives himself that the Debbie life isn’t happening.”
And finally, when asked if Cameron might consider just telling Debbie the truth, Dominic replied, “I think Cameron would honestly like to be all-out truthful, but Chas is insisting that Debbie’s baby is born first and they don’t give her extra stress while she’s pregnant.
“Cameron can’t see the point in waiting – it’ll be bad at any stage and he wants to do it now.
“He’d like to just run away from all of this and marry Chas.”
Yikes! Who would you like to see Cameron end up with; Chas or Debbie?
By rights, he should of course be with me, but hey, that’s a whole ‘nother box of frogs.
