Emmerdale star Natalie Anderson has claimed that fans want a happy ending for Alicia and David.
Speaking to What’s on TV, Anderson who plays Alicia on the hit show, said: "Everyone I meet, everywhere I go, says, 'When are you going to be with David? You have to be with David'. Women especially say that to me, they're so upset.
"I went shopping the other day and so many people came up to me and said, 'You need to give Priya a smack! Why's that David being so stupid?'"
She continued: "It's so funny and it is lovely that the audience are supporting Alicia, considering she is a bit crackers and very hot headed.
"But I think they see she's a good mum, and she would have been a very good wife, that's all she wants in life.
"Yes she'd probably argue like cat and dog, but she would be a good wife and mother."
The 31-year-old actress further admitted that she would like to see the on-screen couple walking down the aisle together, adding: "Ultimately, I would love Alicia and David to properly get married.
"We've always got someone in the background. Leyla is Jacob's real mother and David absolutely loved Leyla to bits, she broke his heart.
"So I think that's why I'd like them married, because there's always that third person lurking around, to throw a spanner in the works."
