Emmerdale: Sian Reese-Williams would’ve “dumped” Nikhil Sharma by now!
As fans of the show will know, Gennie has just found out that she’s expecting Nikhil’s baby, but she hasn’t broken the news to him yet, fearing his reaction given that he’s told her previously that he doesn’t want children.
Of the plotline, and of how Gennie copes with Nikhil (Rik Makarem) being so obsessed with tidiness, sport and healthy living – which is almost diametrically opposite to how Gennie lives her life – Sian said, “They have a communication problem and can’t tell each other anything.
“He keeps going on about not wanting kids and it’s putting her off telling him.”
She added, “Do you know, if I were Gennie, I would have dumped him ages ago…
“He says stupid things to her on a daily basis! I wouldn’t put up with it.”
On the subject of her character’s pregnancy, Sian – who speaks fluent Welsh – said, “I think wearing the bump has fooled my brain into thinking I’m pregnant!
“I constantly feel hormonal and even when I take the padding off, I feel bigger. It’s certainly not making me feel broody.
“I don’t think I like the idea of another human being growing inside me!”
Next week, we’ll see Gennie’s continuing struggles to find the right time to tell Nikhil the news, and as he’s wont to do, he’ll have another foot in mouth episode when he suggests to Gennie that she’s putting on weight and might want to consider losing some. O ‘eck.
