Emmerdale star Lucy Pargeter has admitted that she is worried that fans will turn against her character Chas Dingle as she begins an affair.
Chas is beginning a relationship with Cameron Murray (Dominic Power), who is the partner of her niece Debbie (Charley Webb).
Pargeter told the Daily Mirror: "I always worry, no matter what Chas is doing.
"Our job is so precarious, and you don't know when you might fall out of favour and it's all change.
"Don't get me wrong, it's been a great year. Now Chas has The Woolpack, it feels like I'm part of the furniture.
"But still, you don't know what's round the corner. I'm just one of these people who's always been a bit of a worrier."
Lucy added: "I am a bit nervous about what people are going to say about Chas and Cameron too.
"Chas has never really been bad before, people have always liked her and the comments I get are usually 'go on love', but that all could change with this storyline.
"I'm hoping the fans won't be too hard on her and get too cross. Who knows? I might start getting bashed up in the street, attacked by little old ladies and their handbags!"
