Actor James Moore has high hopes for Ryan and Matty...

Emmerdale stars James Moore, who plays Charity Dingle’s long-lost son Ryan Stocks, and Ash Palmisciano (Matty Barton) are two relative newcomers to the ITV soap.

And James reveals that they get on really well together and have even come up with their own storyline!

“Me and Ash Palmisciano, who plays Matty, talk about it all the time,” he explains. “The connections are uncanny – our characters are both secret sons who’ve had a lot of disadvantages thrown at them.

“Plus we get on like a house on fire, so it would be great to work together!”

We hope the bosses of Emmerdale have been listening and set up a big Ryan and Matty (above) storyline soon!

Meanwhile, as Charity finally saw justice as her rapist DI Bails was sentenced to prison, James tweeted:

“Just got around to watching tonight’s episode, and once again I’m blown away, but more importantly, throughout this storyline I’ve met and received messages from people who have told me they’ve gone through similar experiences and they have found solace in these episodes.”

In a second tweet, James added: “And I am touched by the people that have used this storyline to find the courage to speak out and tell their stories. If these episodes help even one person then Emmerdale has done their job.

“Thank all of you for being so amazing, and so strong. You are not alone.”
