Emmerdale: Chas to get a new love interest, reveals Lucy Pargeter

And the actress is very happy about who the soap's writers have in store


Notoriously unlucky-in-love landlady Chas Dingle is set to get a new love interest – and actress Lucy Pargeter is pleased about who the soap’s writers have selected.


“When I heard the rumour, I was very happy about it,” the show star has commented.

Chas has had no end of terrible relationships in recent years, what with the murder of Carl King, a short-lived marriage to Dan Spencer, a break-up with James Barton and a disastrous reunion with Gordon Livesy.

The latter, of course, ended with Gordon’s jailing after he was exposed as a sexual abuser who’d raped son Aaron when he was a child.

Speaking about this latest emotional plotline, Pargeter added to the Star on Sunday: “The response we’ve had to Aaron’s story has been truly humbling. The letters Danny and I have received have been so open and honest.

“When you get someone’s personal opinion on it who identifies with it, then that’s pretty amazing. It means we got it right.”
