Emmerdale star Dominic Power says Cameron Murray is being “completely irrational” over affair

As fans of Emmerdale will know, in last night’s episode, Chas Dingle and Cameron Murray got down and dirty in the cellar of the Woolpack after weeks of simmering sexual tension between them.

But afterwards, Chas (Lucy Pargeter) regretted her actions, but Cameron was just keen for more…

And while appearing on Lorraine yesterday, Dominic Power who of course plays Cameron – and upon whom I have a giant crush, or am perhaps just in lust with – revealed that he thinks his character is being “completely irrational” for embarking on such a dangerous liaison.

He said, “The last five months for the character have been extremely difficult, with Debbie and Andy having a saviour sibling…

“The way they went about having a saviour sibling behind Cameron’s back, and he’s come to very close blows with Andy since then.

“We’ve been waiting for Cameron to explode or implode, and I think this is how it’s happening now.

“I think he’s acting completely irrationally, and I think his initial attraction to Chas came when he ended up accidentally staying at the pub…

“He was just in a friendly environment for the first time in a long time, and I think that’s when he first started to have feelings for her.”

However, Dominic – who’s also starred in The Bill as Leon Taylore – went on to say that he doesn’t as yet know how the affair will pan out.

He explained, “We get our scripts once a fortnight and we genuinely don’t know what’s coming.

“I don’t think the affair is going to end any time soon, but when it does, I think it’s going to be a case of fireworks.”

And finally, of how he’s enjoying being on the show and at the centre of such big plotlines, Dominic said, “I lucked out really, because I joined and the character was with Debbie Dingle…

“So I was immediately in the middle of the show – because obviously the Dingles are Emmerdale.

“So it’s been brilliant. I’ve had loads of really good storylines so far, and they’re just getting better and better.”
