STV report today that scheming Robbie Lawson and his mum Megan Macey (Gaynor Faye) are going to do their best to ruin Katie and Declan’s wedding day after Robbie discovers that Declan (Jason Merrells) is intending to fleece Megan out of the money she’s earned in setting up the music festival.
Speaking exclusively to STV, Jamie Shelton, who of course plays Robbie, said, “Robbie finds out Declan and Katie are going to screw Megan over with the festival money, and then Megan finds out.
“And Robbie wants to tell Megan to mess up the wedding and he wants to help her do that.”
So that the plotline isn’t spoiled for viewers, Jamie added, “All I know really is that they’re out to spoil it and Megan’s going to make sure she does that…
“She’ll be bursting as they’re getting married and seeing how everyone reacts to that. That’s the plan.”
And while discussing the historic live broadcast – which is of course when Katie (Sammy Winward) and Declan will be married – Jamie said, “I’m quite new to the show and it was great to be involved in the storylines like that, as well as to be involved with the live…
“I’m really looking forward to it. I expect I’ll become pretty nervous [about the live episode] but we’ll all rehearse it and get it all sorted so when we do it everyone will know exactly what they want to be doing.
“But I also want to leave space for it still to be fresh on the day and put in a good performance.”
Emmerdale begins its week long special 40th anniversary episodes as of Monday, October 15th with the live episode airing at 7pm on the 17th. And as we reported earlier, viewers will be able to get into the thick of the action via live backstage webcams.
