Emmerdale: Lucy Pargeter is having sleepless nights over live episode wedding scenes!
And of course, as we reported this week, Lucy will be playing a large role in the hour-long live special as we see her character tie the knot with Dan Spencer (Liam Fox) in what is surely – as was promised by the show’s producer Stuart Blackburn earlier this year – one of the soap’s most unlikely romances ever.
Speaking to TV Biz about the responsibility of being expected to deliver a flawless performance while the show broadcasts live, Lucy said, “I’ve had anxiety dreams about not knowing my lines.
“Everybody is waiting for us to go wrong…
“The Corrie live episode went so perfectly they had people phoning in saying that it could not have been live.
“But we’re doing it – and whether it’s gone well or we have made mistakes, we’ve still filmed a live episode on location and transmitted it.
“No matter what happens, we’ve done a good thing.”
And of course, the special week of episodes, which will air in October, will also see the nuptials of Declan Macey (Jason Merrells) and Katie Sugden (Sammy Winward) as well as the births of Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) and Gennie Walker’s (Sian Reese Wiliams) babies.
In addition, Blackburn also recently teased that a “major” and “well loved” character is set to be murdered during the week of specials, but of course, he and everyone else at the show’s headquarters are sworn to secrecy about who will be murdered, and who will turn out to be a killer!
