'Emmerdale' Matthew Wolfenden: 'I don't know David plot outcome'

By
Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden has admitted that he still doesn't know whether the show's bosses have a happy ending in store for David Metcalfe and Alicia Gallagher.

David recently brought his sham relationship with Alicia (Natalie Anderson) to an end and is now concentrating on building a future with Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade), with the pair set to get engaged in tomorrow night's (January 25) episode.

Speaking on This Morning today (January 24), Wolfenden heaped praise on the ongoing love triangle storyline.

Wolfenden commented: "It is just like a rom-com. It's a great story - I've loved it. It's a hard job, being on there with them two beautiful girls!

"It's nice when you get these storylines. To be honest, everyone at Emmerdale's lovely, so whoever you're working with, you're going to have a great time. But it's nice to get a good storyline."

However, asked whether he knows where the story is heading in the long-run, Wolfenden replied: "No!"

He explained: "We only get to know about two weeks before filming, when we get our scripts. We get our scripts every two weeks, so we all pick our scripts up and quickly go through them."

The actor added that the ideal outcome to the storyline would be David settling down with Alicia.

He said: "As a rom-com love story, I think he needs to eventually end up with Alicia again. In the end, I think he needs to go full circle. For the time being, he is staying with Priya, but there needs to be a happy ending. I think the happy ending is him getting with Alicia."
