Jeff Hordley plays pranks on any of his 'Emmerdale' co-stars which cosy up to his wife Zoe Henry on set

Jeff Hordley plays pranks on his 'Emmerdale' co-stars which film love scenes with wife Zoe Henry.

The 40-year-old actor - who has appeared in the rural soap as badboy Cain Dingle since 2000 - deliberately tries to embarrass his real-life spouse, who joined the show as Rhona Goskirk in March this year.

She said: "We filmed a sequence where Rhona and Marlon were hugging in the pub, and Cain was playing darts. Jeff normally takes no notice of all that, but on this occasion he turned round and said, 'What do you think you're doing?' Mark Charnock, who plays Marlon, and I went bright red, while everyone was howling with laughter. So he has the odd joke!"

Despite the occasional on-set joke, Zoe adores spending time with her husband - and she thinks he has accepted her presence in the show "graciously".

She added to Inside Soap magazine: "It's fab to be working alongside Jeff. I thought it would be a bit weird for him, but he's been so cool about the whole thing. If I'd been there for 10 years, I think I'd have been a bit more huffy! But he's so gracious, and has been brilliant."
