Danny Miller has revealed that Emmerdale‘s upcoming train crash forces his character Aaron to ‘grow up’.

Having been struggling with his sexuality and his love for pal Jackson for a while, Aaron is forced to face up to his feelings after next week’s dramatic episode.

“Aaron has to accept the fact that he’s gay and live his life as a gay bloke,” said Danny.

“He does have to grow up and I think if he was a friend of mine I would tell him that you have to face up to the fact that you’re gay – get over it and deal with it.”

Danny added that he’s been getting used to playing a more grown-up Aaron.

“A lot of the scripts I’ve received in the past two months, I’ve certainly tried to play it more mature,” he said.

Emmerdale’s train crash episode screens next Wednesday at 7pm on ITV1.
