'Emmerdale' Dominic Brunt: 'Arrest aftermath shocks Paddy'

By
Emmerdale star Dominic Brunt has revealed that his character Paddy Kirk's upcoming arrest could be the final nail in the coffin for his plans to move abroad.

Paddy is currently hoping to relocate to New Zealand for two years with his new wife Rhona and her young son Leo, having secured a lucrative job there.

However, next week's episodes see Paddy arrested for assaulting a police officer amid a violent clash with Leo's father Marlon over their ongoing custody battle.

While a desperate Rhona leaves for New Zealand with Leo anyway, Paddy finds himself in much bigger trouble than he expected as he remains on home soil.

Brunt told Inside Soap: "Paddy thinks that if Rhona can get Leo out of there, he'll be able to meet them later on. She needs to get away while she can - so Paddy tells his wife to just head off while no-one is looking."

Confirming that Paddy will be charged over the assault, the actor continued: "He thinks he's just going to get a caution, and doesn't realise the consequences until later.

"He doesn't take it seriously until a letter comes from the veterinary council saying he's got to go and see them, as they might have to suspend him from being a vet. He never for a moment thought this would prevent him taking up his new job abroad."

Emmerdale airs the arrest scenes on Friday, September 14 at 7pm on ITV1. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
