As fans of Emmerdale will know, pub landlady Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) has been devastated by the end of her relationship with Cameron Murray (Dominic Power) who of course chose to stay with Chas’s niece Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) rather than flee the village with Chas to start a new life together.
And of course, ever since, Chas has had to grin and bear it when she’s forced to witness loved up Debbie and Cameron together, and she’s tried to hide her heartache by responding to Dan Spencer’s flirting…
Dan is of course Ali Spencer’s (Kelli Hollis) ex, who arrived in the village in order to be nearer to his kids, Sean and Amelia.
When Dan began his flirting with Chas, he didn’t think for a minute she would reciprocate, but when she does, he can’t believe his luck! And in fact, he thinks all his birthdays have come at once when he and Chas sleep together in a forthcoming episode…
However, Liam Fox, who plays Dan, has told Soaplife that his character is facing certain heartache himself, because he of course has no idea that he’s merely a ‘rebound’ fling as far as Chas is concerned.
He said, “We all know who is and isn’t in our league, but we don’t like admitting it.
“But Dan just wants to ignore it. He thinks, ‘Why the hell not?’”
Liam went on to reveal that Dan and Chas sleep together after they both attend Paddy and Rhona’s wedding.
He said, “Chas invites him to the back of the pub for a drink and then kisses him. He’s blown away…
“He’s been hoping for it, but never really expected it. He’s a bit like a big kid in a sweet shop and everything’s free.”
But Liam teased, “I know that at some point his heart will be broken.”
Don’t miss that drama in next week’s episodes of Emmerdale.
