Elsewhere in the soap, Bob Hope actor Tony Audenshaw opened up about his character’s prospect of forming a relationship with business partner Bernice Blackstock.
“You never know, right? You never know what’s going to happen with these relationships if there’s a spark,” he said.
“There’s definitely some kind of chemistry between them, but Bob said those days are long behind him. He’s very happy with Wendy.”
Recent developments have seen Wendy take issue with their growing closeness, throwing water over Bob as soon as he entered their home. Audenshaw said he sympathizes with Wendy.
“I guess in any relationship, when someone spends a lot of time with someone else, they can suspect something is going on,” she explained.
“But Wendy has no reason to think that, that I can think of.”
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7.30pm. on ITV1 and broadcast on ITVX.
