Emmerdale: Matthew Wolfenden thinks David's plan is daft

Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden has admitted that he thinks his alter-ego David Metcalfe is "daft" to go ahead with the wedding.

David is planning on marrying his friend Alicia Gallagher (Natalie Anderson) so he will get custody of her adopted son Jacob when she goes to prison.

However, Wolfenden said he would never pull off such a stunt in real life.

He told the TV Times: "I'm totally different to David and take the marriage vows really seriously.

"He's so flippant about it and thinks they can get a quickie divorce, but I couldn't do that. It's daft."

The current storyline is leading up Alicia leaving the village for a while as Anderson goes on maternity leave.

Natalie is expecting her first baby with husband James Shepherd.

Wolfenden continued: "I'm really going to miss Natalie. She's great to work with, we have a real ball on set - and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens between David and Alicia."

The actor admitted that he hopes there will be a happy ending for the couple.

He said: "From the build-up, I would love for her to come back and for him to say, 'Let's get divorced' and then, as he's signing the papers, realising that he's in love with her. That would be a great end to this story."
