Share article:

"Emmerdale" star Jeff Hordley gets told off for corpsing on set during serious scenes.

The 48-year-old actor plays Cain Dingle on the ITV soap and his alter ego is embroiled in a major storyline with his daughter Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) with her believing that her dad is responsible for the death of fiancé Joe Tate (Ned Porteous) following a fight but Joe's associate Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough) may actually be the man responsible.

The pair will be seen in some very heavy scenes in the coming weeks as Debbie can't forgive her father Cain for his part in Joe's passing but in between takes the two friends can't stop making each other laugh despite the serious scripts much to the annoyance of the crew.

Speaking in a joint interview on "This Morning", Jeff said: "This has been great to play because Charley and I are really just good friends and we really enjoy working with each other as sort of serious and dark and intense as some of the scenes can be. There's a lot laughter on set.

Charley then interjected: "Sometimes too much!"

Jeff added: "When we make each other corpse sometimes, you can see the crew going, "Please can we get it together because we've got to get on." "

Jeff admits there are trying times ahead for Cain because he believes he has "blood on his hands" and he knows his daughter Debbie can't forgive her dad this time.

Jeff said: "People are asking the question is he alive, is he not, and I killed him, for the first time, blood on my hands.

"There's be one constant in Caine's life, it's been its daughter and now that this happened because she's always been for him and he's always been there for her and this seems to be the end for them."

Hinting there will be no reconciliation for the pair any time soon, Charley said: "We knew it was coming up, but it's a big thing for them because it's like will this destroy them forever and that's the question that we don't know at the moment. We're filming stuff still aware they're not speaking so who knows how long that's going to go on for."
