'Emmerdale' Lucy Pargeter: 'I'm glad Chas is innocent'

By
Emmerdale star Lucy Pargeter has admitted that she is "glad" her character Chas Dingle did not kill ex-fiancé Carl King.

Chas is currently awaiting trial for murdering Carl (Tom Lister) following a violent altercation between them in the soap's live episode, but viewers are aware that Cameron Murray was the culprit who delivered the fatal blow.

Speaking to Inside Soap's Yearbook 2013, Pargeter predicted that things will ultimately turn out well for Chas despite her current dire situation.

Asked whether she was disappointed not to be Carl's killer, Pargeter replied: "No, I'm glad. It means Chas won't be sent down for murder and I'll get to keep my job!

"But I also think it's a nice twist that Cameron's letting her take the blame for something he did, and there'll be big repercussions for a long while to come."

Chas had an affair with Cameron (Dominic Power) this year, despite the fact that he was in a serious relationship with her niece Debbie (Charley Webb).

On the reaction to the plot, Pargeter commented: "It's strange, because I haven't had an awful lot of negativity about the affair. A lot of people have sympathised with Chas, especially after what happened in the live episode. You can't control your heart, can you? The only negative thing people say to me is that I've had too many storylines recently!"

Confirming that she wants more busy times to come, Pargeter added: "I hate not working. I've had quite a bit of time off recently, and my fiancé Rudi is happy for me to go back because I tend to knock down walls in the house when I'm off! I can't sit still - I like being challenged."
