Emmerdale: Dawn reveals she has an 'infection'
Chas Dingle (played by Lucy Pargeter) and Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) have been through a lot during the short amount of time they have been together. A couple of years ago, Emmerdale fans were due to see the couple get married, but following the death of daughter Grace, the nuptials were put on hold. After a rocky year, the village vet thinks the best Christmas present he could give Chas is a wedding – and the two actors who play the characters spoke to Express.co.uk about their storyline.
In true Paddy style, fans of the ITV soap will see the festive occasion will not go according to plan.
It starts with Chas and Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) at loggerheads once more when the Woolpack barmaid tells Paddy her cousin won’t be invited to their Christmas dinner.
This sends Paddy into a blind panic, realising he hasn’t sent out any wedding invitations.
What is meant to be a rather straightforward task, ends in disaster when the wrong information is printed.

Those watching at home will see Paddy get even more stressed when the marquee company cancels his reservation.
Dominic, who plays Paddy, spoke about these incidents, teasing: “Well, it’s not going very well – everything [and] everybody cancels on them.
“There’s nothing available because it’s Christmas. There’s nothing available because it’s COVID.
“And then Marlon says, ‘I will help you by getting the invitations out,’ but they all come back [and] there are typos all over them; instead of exchanging vows, it says exchanging cows, which isn’t great.”
With no marquee, Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) suggests they hold the reception in the beer garden instead.
Marlon – with Aaron Dingle’s (Danny Miller) help – manages to persuade Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) to organise the occasion.
When asked why Paddy feels the need to suddenly walk down the aisle with Chas, Dominic explained: “Well, because he’s insane.
“He wants to give her the best present he possibly could after a few really bad years for them, after losing Grace.

“So I think a sticking plaster is the right term, but I think he gets carried away with the idea. I don’t think he really thinks things through.
“He’d rather do something practical to display his love, rather than saying, ‘I love you.'”
And because so many things go wrong for him, Paddy gets “ridiculously stressed”.
“ I think he straightaway realises he’s bitten off more than he can chew,” Dominic remarked.
“And then [he] starts asking everybody else to help him and for them to do [things for him].”
How does the wedding turn out? “It’s very sweet. It’s very romantic,” the actor commented.
“It’s a really lovely episode, but he’s an idiot. He’s not really thought it through at all, but then it’s too late and he’s got to do it. So the whole thing’s quite farcical as well!”
Emmerdale weekday evenings at 7pm on ITV.
