Ash Palmisciano's Emmerdale nightmare

Share article:

Ash Palmisciano has been having nightmares about an "Emmerdale" live episode.

The 29-year-old actor - who plays Matty Barton on the ITV soap - dreamt he had to say the opening line in a future live episode, but after missing his cue he had to climb through the window of the programme's fictional pub, The Woolpack.

He wrote on Twitter: "Had a dream last night we were doing a Live Ep of Emmerdale I had the opening line,all I had to do was walk in the pub door but I missed the que & the guys were waiting in silence,so In panic climbed through the pub window,army crawled behind the bar & popped up!All on camera (sic)"

Ash recently admitted it is important for viewers of the ITV soap - which last aired a live episode in October 2012 to celebrate the show's 40th birthday - to see the "highs, lows and vulnerability" his character Matty is going through to become himself.

The character - who was previously known as Moira Dingle's (Natalie J. Robb) daughter Hannah Barton - is to undergo gender reassignment surgery, and Ash is hopeful the audience will learn a lot about his alter-ego in the scenes.

"I hope they learn about his inner courage, and how he pushes himself to face his fears."
