Emma Atkins has teased that her alter-ego Charity Dingle may have a raunchy affair with Megan Macey in 'Emmerdale'
Emmerdale's Emma Atkins has hinted that her bolshie alter-ego Charity Dingle may start a lesbian affair with her arch-enemy Megan Macey.
The pair have been at loggerheads over Frank Clayton (Michael Praed) - who is dating the brunette beauty (Gaynor Faye), but has been sleeping with the feisty blonde (Emma) on the sly - in recent weeks, but things are set to take a dramatic turn as bosses have decided to take their love triangle in a different direction.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Emma said: "We've been given some dialogue today where we have said: 'Where is this going?' I'm not afraid of it going in that direction. I do believe you can fall in love with a person no matter what gender.
"It wouldn't bother me. She should connect with anyone, male or female. Us coming together in some shape of form is interesting because there's so much we don't like about one another. And yet we have come together because we're practically family."
And Gaynor is equally as excited about the prospect of her character dating a lady.
She added: "I think the thing is, we are actors, anything - great storylines, great relationships great drama... anything could happen."
Meanwhile, that's not the only love triangle forming in the Dales at the moment, as Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) lands herself in hot water when she leans in to kiss her best friend Leyla Harding's (Roxy Shahidi) boyfriend Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan) again.
But this time the pair have spying eyes on them as Sarah Sugden (Sophia Moore) spots them - although it's not clear whether the youngster will expose their big secret.
A source explained to Inside Soap magazine: "He's tried to detach himself from Priya and concentrate on being the best fiance he can for Leyla. The trouble is, there's so much chemistry between them that it's causing problems. The last thing Pete wants is for someone else to blurt out the truth about his cheating antics to Leyla."
