In next week’s visits to Emmerdale, Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) and Robbie Lawson (Jamie Shelton) are both playing dangerous mind games with each other, however, they could have disastrous results for both of them…
The drama begins on Monday, June 3 as Charity (Emma Atkins) quizzes Debbie about what she’s going to do now she knows the truth about Robbie. However, Debbie assures her mum that she’s got it all in hand.
Later, in the pub, Charity’s confused when Robbie arrives, feigning concern about having seen Kirk hanging around in the village, and Debbie plays along by appearing anxious… Read more & comment »
It’s been reported today that a study carried out by The Co-Op and Liverpool John Moores University Business School has revealed that 72% of the food characters in our top soaps “ate or talked about” was unhealthy.
According to the Daily Star, the experts who oversaw the study have therefore slammed the various shows for promoting a lifestyle that, for example in the instance of Emmerdale character Eric Pollard – who’s played by Chris Chittell – could see him in an early grave!
The paper adds, “Over two weeks scientists analysed more than 830 scenes from four popular soaps – Coronation Street, EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks… Read more & comment »
It was announced yesterday that Emmerdale actor Richard Thorp – who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1995 – had died aged 81, and subsequently, the cast and crew of the show, as well as the soap’s fans, have been paying tribute to Richard, who of course played the role of Alan Turner.
Richard had been member of the cast of the ITV soap for over 30 years, and in that time, Alan Turner evolved from being a bombastic bully to one of the show’s most-loved characters.
Prior to joining Emmerdale, Richard starred in iconic film The Dam Busters and TV dramas Emergency Ward 10 and the now defunct soap, Crossroads… Read more & comment »
As fans of Emmerdale will know, we’re about to see killer Cameron Murray exhuming the body of his victim Alex Moss – who was played by Kurtis Stacey – and relocating the remains…
Which he was forced to do after Declan Macey (Jason Merrells) bought the woodland area with a view to redeveloping it. So of course, fearing that workmen would unearth Alex’s corpse – and therefore identify that he was a victim of murder and maybe even point to Cameron being his killer – Cameron undertook the grisly task under cover of darkness… Read more & comment »

Last week, we met with the cast and crew of ITV soap Emmerdale at the show’s studios in Leeds, and while there, we talked to the gorgeous Dominic Power about his character Cameron Murray, who has of course already murdered Carl King and Alex Moss…
However, fans need not fear that Dominic is going to disappear from the soap any time soon – if Cameron is arrested and imprisoned for his crimes – because the actor told us, “I’m told that in soap land, it takes six killings before viewers demand justice.”
So yay! There’s four more to go before we risk losing Cameron! Read more & comment »
Last Friday, I met with the cast and crew of hit ITV soap Emmerdale at the show’s headquarters in Leeds, and among the actors I spoke to on the day was Natalie J Robb, who of course plays Moira Barton…
And keen to learn more about Natalie herself, I asked, “What’s your favourite and least favourite thing about working on Emmerdale?”
She replie, “I think my least favourite thing is that we sometimes have to film in really cold weather… Read more & comment »
Fans of Emmerdale will know that Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) has, since her boyfriend Cameron Murray betrayed her by having an affair with her Aunt, Chas Dingle, become a ruthless businesswoman who’s determined that nothing will stop her making vast sums of money…
And she doesn’t care if what she’s involved in is illegal, and she doesn’t care who she has to ride roughshod over to get what she wants.
And of course, she’s involved Robbie Lawson (Jamie Shelton) in her shady business dealings, however, he’s becoming fed up of being Debbie’s dogs body, and of having her treat him like something she just stepped in whenever it suits her… Read more & comment »
Vet Rhona Kirk (Zoe Henry) is of course battling with an addiction to strong prescription painkillers right now, and over the course of the last couple of weeks, her life has been going progressively downhill as she attempts to function while dealing with withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
So far, only her friend and partner in the vets’ surgery Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick) knows Rhona’s secret, and as fans will know, Vanessa has been trying to help Rhona to wean herself off the drugs by supplying her with medicines from their surgery.
But things come to a head this week as it dawns on Vanessa that Rhona may not be making as much effort to come off the tablets as she says she is… Read more & comment »
Fans of Emmerdale will of course know that irresponsible Kerry Wyatt has been shunned by pretty much everyone in the village, including her ex Andy Sugden and her daughter Amy…
And that’s because she was of course responsible for a blaze – having fallen asleep while drunk with a lit cigarette – at Andy’s cottage while she was babysitting his kids.
However, in next week’s episodes, Kerry’s back in the village, and she has shocking news for Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) when she tells him she’s pregnant! But is she really? Or it is a ploy to buy herself time to get back in his, and everyone else’s, good books? Read more & comment »

Fans of Emmerdale will know that Adam Barton (Adam Thomas) hates Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) primarily because it was his affair with Adam’s mum Moira that set into motion events that ended with the death of Adam’s dad, John Barton…
So it’s no surprise that since Moira (Natalie J Robb) officially announced that she and Cain are an item again earlier this year, Adam has struggled to see his mum with the man he blames for the death of his father.
And now that Cain’s daughter Debbie has kicked him out of her house, and Cain’s taken up residence at Moira’s, Adam’s finding it increasingly difficult to stomach… Read more & comment »
As fans of Emmerdale will most likely know, Sian Reese-Williams has announced that she’s leaving the show and her role as Gennie Walker, and of course, it was also announced this week that her co-star Rik Makarem, who plays Gennie’s husband Nikhil, is also leaving.
We’ll have more on that in a moment, but first, during a press day at Emmerdale’s studios in Leeds last week, Sian told us, “I always take my contracts year by year, and I’ve really loved being here…
“But my gut was telling me it was time to move on, and I couldn’t really ignore that.
“For me, this is the perfect time to go to be honest because I’ve done everything that I wanted to do… Read more & comment »
On Friday, I met with Emmerdale star Dominic Power during a press day at the show’s studios in Leeds, and once I’d stopped drooling and picked my bottom jaw up off the floor – he’s even prettier in real life than he is as Cameron Murray – I managed to talk to him about all things Cameron…
Including why he thinks Cameron has become a murderer, but first, I began by asking if he finds it hard to play the twisted side of Cameron’s persona; the murderous, violent Cameron.
He replied, “That’s the easy part if I’m honest. Playing the big emotions of that kind of stuff is actually a lot easier than just being, with nothing by way of actual drama… Read more & comment »
This week, I had the pleasure of meeting Emmerdale star Natalie J Robb – who of course plays the role of Moira Barton – at the show’s studios in Leeds, and over lunch, we had a chat about what lies ahead for her character and her character’s lover, Cain Dingle, who’s played by Jeff Hordley.
First, I asked, “Is there any chance Cain and Moira will be walking down the aisle in the near future?
Natalie replied, “Well I don’t know about it if there is, so I can’t comment on that, but I can tell you there’s some turmoil coming up for them!
“It’s set to hit the screens in the summer and into October, but that’s all I can say for now!” Read more & comment »
