Emmerdale actor Dominic Brunt has admitted that he is enjoying the feud scenes between his character Paddy Kirk and Marlon Dingle – as it gives him the chance to shout at co-star Mark Charnock.

Although the actors are best friends off screen, onscreen they are currently at loggerheads after Marlon ditched plans to move to New Zealand with Paddy and his wife Rhona – and added that he wants his son Leo to stay here with him.

And Dominic said, “I think it’s a release when you’re bawling at someone. I don’t behave like that at home so it’s nice to be able to do it at work.

“It’s all very well messing about and working out little comedy bits with each other, but there’s nothing like being visceral and screaming in each others faces. I’ve loved it personally!”

However he added that he is confident Paddy and Marlon will eventually make up.

It’s drama and it will come back round – it makes it more interesting and they’ll come back stronger. It’s great that they have to get through this,” Dominic said.

“I think friendships should be tested like this and they should be thrown at the wall and they should see how dark they can make it. I think it’s amazing and I’m really happy that it’s happening, because it’s incredible that dramatically we’re being tested with this incredible storyline.

“But I’m sure it will come back round. They do love each other. You can tell by the way they’re devastated with each other.”
