Emmerdale’s series producer Kate Oates has hinted that Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) is to once again find her herself attracted to Ross Barton (Michael Parr) as part of an upcoming plotline.
Debbie may currently be in a relationship with Ross’s more reliable brother Pete (Anthony Quinlan), but it seems that temptation looks set to come her way in the future.
“Ross will always be a thorn in his brother’s side and Debbie always does like a bad boy,” says Oates. “So the big question is: will it cause problems or can Debbie remain focused and stay with the man who really would make her happiest?”
Debbie’s advances were spurned by Ross last year and since then she has found greater stability with Ross. But will it be a case of old habits dying hard?
“Debbie’s relationship with Pete has really grounded her. We’ve seen her make sacrifices for him that she never make for anyone else. For example, when she was going to put Charity in prison to save him,” continues Oates. “It represents a lot that’s been missing from her life – proper stability, someone she can trust and who can be a father to her kids. But Ross is always on the sidelines…”
