'Emmerdale's Paddy Kirk and Marlon Dingle will be forced to re-evaluate their friendship when Marlon's girlfriend Rhona falls for his pal Paddy
Paddy Kirk and Marlon Dingle's friendship will be tested by Paddy's attraction to Rhona in 'Emmerdale'.
The best friends - played by Dominic Brunt and Mark Charnock - will struggle to recover their close friendship when Marlon's new girlfriend falls for fellow vet Paddy.
Dominic told BANG Showbiz: "Marlon and Paddy are like brothers and they are in love in their own way, there's a wedge called Rhona on the way. Paddy's really met his match because Rhona is a vet and they're equal people and he realises that she may like him for him. We're going to see some trouble between Paddy and Marlon."
Mark said: "Paddy doesn't go out with Marlon's girlfriend, they've split up but the lines are blurred and then it becomes so much more. Hopefully we'll recover from it. The trust has been broken though so it's going to be a rocky road for them both for a while. It will add depth to their relationship. It's about Paddy's and Marlon's marriage really."
However series producer Gavin Blythe is confident nothing could ever seriously come between the pair.
He said: "Their friendship is going to be tested. There's going to be one too many people in this love triangle. They're so loyal to each other that's what the story was always going to be about, the two of them, how they would cope with betraying each other. Their love is probably stronger for each other than it is for Rhona."
