Emmerdale star Fiona Wade has said there is "a lot more drama to come" in the cheating storyline involving her character, Priya Sharma, Al Chapman and Debbie Dingle.

This week, fans of the soap saw Al (played by Michael Wildman) getting his marching orders after his fiancée Priya and his secret lover Debbie (Charley Webb) joined forces to exact their revenge.

The moment of truth

Appearing on Virgin Media One's Six O'Clock Show, Wade teased: "Basically, I can't say too much. There is a lot more drama to come - I don't think Priya's done quite yet. She's definitely turned. I think she's snapped and had enough.

"So, will he leave the village or not? Obviously, I can't say what's going to happen, but there is more drama to come. It's not over."

"It's not over"

Wade said she worries about giving away any plot details. 

"We're about six weeks ahead [of broadcast] and, to be fair, we forget almost. We then are on to the next thing, and so we've got to be very careful what storyline we're talking about. So yes, I have to be very careful, and also, I don't want to ruin it for the viewers, because it's an exciting little storyline." 

Wade was also sounded out about whether she would like her actor husband Simon Cotton - who previously appeared in Emmerdale as Hugh Bryant - to make a return to the soap as a new flame for Priya, bypassing the social distancing required for romantic scenes.  

"I'd love him to," she replied. "I don't know how much he'd enjoy working with me! I think he thinks I'm probably a bit bossy! [Laughs]

"I hear... Some people are saying that would be a good idea [casting the actor partners of stars in soaps] , because obviously everyone has to be at two metres and it's hard to do romantic storylines. But I'd be very happy for him if he came into Emmerdale, of course!"
