The actor admitted that he would like to see new romance on the horizon for Rodney, who is currently involved in a storyline with scheming Carl King (Tom Lister) after being employed by him at the Emmerdale Haulage firm.
Mower told Inside Soap: "Rodney has been on the back-burner for some time now. I think we should see more of him this year. It'd be nice if he met a wealthy lady - Rodney is happy when he's a millionaire!"
Asked whether he would like Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) and Jimmy (Nick Miles) to make Rodney a grandparent again, he replied: "I don't really want that to happen. But I've heard that the actor Charles Dance is about to become a dad again at the age of 65, so how about Rodney being an older father? He just needs to find a rich young lady to have the baby with!"
Rodney receives a shock next week when he discovers that Carl has set him up to take the blame for a serious driving offence.
However, Mower added: "Rodney's a streetwise chap. If push came to shove, he'd drop Carl in it - even though he knows it could mean spending time in prison himself. Rodney is dangerous - Carl should watch out."
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV1.
