Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) reveals his hopes and dreams for both he and Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) in Emmerdale during their two-hander lockdown episode, but unspoken fears threaten to ruin their relationship.
Lockdown has inevitably resulted in the Woolpack having to close, and Chas begins to struggle as a result.
With the pub shut, she feels cut off from every aspect of her life, and — in spite of her desire to make the most out of the lockdown period — she’s finding it hard to cope.
Speaking about Chas’ struggle, actress Lucy Pargeter revealed: ‘So when we go into this lockdown episode, Chas’ state of mind is now one of her realising how not having the pub open and that connection with the village has altered things.
‘She is very much part of the DNA of the village and she’s floundering slightly without that connection to others.
‘I think we get a lot of ourselves from other people (as a lot of us have found out) all of a sudden Chas is alone in the Woolpack without any interaction from the outside world and I think she does feel somewhat futile and without purpose.
‘She is looking after a baby, cooking and cleaning, but without her job and that isn’t her really.’
Matters are complicated further by Paddy, who’s evidently set on drinking the cellar dry.
However, Paddy is aware that not all is what it seems between he and Chas, and therefore he reveals his desire to get thinks back on track.
One Thursday evening —following the clap for carers — Chas is evidently emotional, and Paddy takes the opportunity to reflect.
Before long, he eagerly reveals his plans for them both — but will Chas be happy with what he’s got to say?
There’s clearly more going on under the surface that needs to be addressed, so will their relationship suffer as a result of the pair not discussing the problems?
On Paddy’s actions, Dominic Brunt added: ‘As usual he doesn’t read the signs straight away and should have seen Chas was unhappy months ago. I just hope he’s not too late.
‘I think he’ll do everything in his power to save his marriage. He loves her and he loves Eve.
