Natalie J. Robb enjoyed her kissing scenes with Jeff Hordley.

The 42-year-old actress understands why fans want her "Emmerdale" alter ego Moira Barton to get back with Cain Dingle because she likes working with the actor, but she insists there's never any real-life romantic undertones to their screen time.

Asked if fans ask when they're getting back together, she told OK! magazine: "Yes, and they're always saying how lucky I am that I get to kiss Jeff Hordley.

"I'm not going to lie, those scenes aren't unpleasant. Anyone who says they are is lying.

"Me and Jeff are friends though, so it doesn't feel like it would if you were on a date."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty would love to find love and settle down in the near future, but she's adamant she'd rather wait for the "right person" to pop up in her life than for her to join dating apps like Tinder and Bumble.

She said recently: "I have no time to date anyway. I would rather wait for the right person to come along, I'm not in a hurry.

"I am definitely not on Tinder or anything like that. Oh my goodness, no. Could you imagine Mucky Moira popping up on someone's phone? Nothing against other people who want to do that, but I'll wait for the right person to come along."

And Natalie has a strict criteria when it comes to what type of men will win her heart as she doesn't want someone who will talk back to her.

She said: "I don't know whether it is with social media now, but the dating scene and apps like Tinder have stopped people going out to meet as much as they used to do.

"I would rather meet someone by the way, fate bringing us together. Who would be my dream man? One who doesn't talk back to me, one that can put me in my place. Somebody honest, loyal and who makes me laugh."
