'Emmerdale's John Barton ''leaves himself open'' to cheating on his wife with Eve Jenson after she starts making flirty advances on him
'Emmerdale's John Barton "leaves himself open" to cheating on his wife with Eve Jenson.
Even though John is happily married to Moira, actor James Thornton - who plays the character - reckons he could be led astray because he is too comfortable at home.
James said: "John's so secure in his relationship that he feels Eve isn't a threat, so he doesn't put up the barriers that he should.
"He loves his family, and thinks Eve's just a nice girl with nothing malicious about her. By doing that he's leaving himself open to her charms."
Fiery tempered Moira (Natalie J. Robb) is quick to fend off any advances from flirty Eve (Suzanne Shaw), and gives her quick reproach when she starts trying to sweet-talk John on his farm.
James added: "I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of Moira. Her fiery nature begins to show, but John assures her that Eve is just a tease and nothing more."
Despite his reassurance, Eve gets one up on her potential love rival when John drunkenly confides in her about his daughter Holly taking drugs.
James added: "He just can't keep his mouth shut. This is a secret that the Bartons are dealing with by themselves, and they don't want anyone else to know about it.
"So that knowledge definitely gives Eve one up on Moira."
