'Emmerdale' star Lucy Pargeter is terrified she will burp during the soap's live 40th anniversary show because she has a real flatulence problem
'Emmerdale' star Lucy Pargeter is terrified she will burp during the soap's live show.
The actress admits she has a "real burping problem" and fears her flatulence could ruin the soap's 40th anniversary edition.
She said: "Everyone on set is used to it by now. But I'm seriously worried that I'll do it during the live episode at totally the wrong moment."
Lucy - who plays Chas Dingle in the ITV1 soap - knows it "sounds stupid", but insists she's even sought medical advice.
The 35-year-old star told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've even been to the doctors about it but they have told me there's nothing I can do.
"New cast members must think I'm so rude at first but seriously, there's nothing I can do!"
The 40th anniversary episode will be her first experience of live TV and Lucy admits she's very nervous.
She said: "I'm bricking it! The show as a whole is a massive machine, and we are merely the last link. As long as we say our words right, we're just putting the little sprinkle on the top."
