It has been revealed that the actor who plays Aaron Dingle is leaving Emmerdale.
Aaron will not be quitting for good but will be off our screens for a long time due to a lengthy prison sentence.
It has been confirmed that the mechanic will be sentenced to 12 months behind bars for attacking Finn Barbon’s ex – boyfriend Kasim Sabet.
Robert Sugden played by Ryan Hawley, has been doing everything he can to give Aaron his perfect surprise wedding with all their family and friends at The Woolpack. However, the big day will be ruined when the police turn up to arrest Aaron.
Danny has said: “If Aaron goes to jail without marrying Robert first, it’ll make his sentence ten times worse. Aaron totally didn’t see this wedding coming. He honestly thought Robert proposed as a way of shutting him up after they’d argued about Rebecca. So when he goes and organizes everything behind Aaron’s back it comes as a big shock.”
Danny added: “But if the police arriving means that the marriage can’t go ahead before he gets sent to prison Aaron will he left feeling like he and Robert have got unfinished business.
He and boyfriend Robert Sugden both face the axe in this evening’s explosive scenes as they’re among the several characters involved in a huge pile-up on the motorway.
ITV has confirmed that at least one character will die in the crash, but we won’t find out who until tomorrow night.
Talking about potentially being killed off, Danny admitted he was touched by the public’s support for his character: “I’ve never seen anything like it, to be honest. It’s a phenomenon. Before I came to Emmerdale, I thought I understood it. But it’s only when you’re immersed in it that you realise how passionately our audience cares about these two characters. And we’re properly rooting for them too – so let’s hope they make it.”
Will the pair ever get married? And now Aaron will be behind bars, will Robert go back to Rebecca?
Emmerdale is on ITV tonight at 7pm and 8pm.
