Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden says he and Charley Webb will never be an item on-screen
Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden – who plays David Metcalfe – has revealed that although he and co-star Charley Webb, who plays Debbie Dingle, are engaged in real life, they’re never going to hook up on-screen.
Speaking to Now magazine, Matthew – who has a four month old son, Buster, with fiancé Charley – revealed, “There was talk of our characters getting together, but we said no.
“We hardly ever have scenes together but we’ve probably sneaked off for a snog when we’ve had the chance.”
Matthew went on to say that Charley had been one of the first cast members he met when he started out with the show.
He said, “I went to an awards do before I started filming and she was the first to walk into the hotel foyer where I was waiting…
“It must have been love at first sight. I proposed to her over Christmas two years ago.
“The ring was in a balloon she had to pop – thank God she said yes.
“There’ll be a wedding but we’ve had to deal with having a baby first.”
