Emmerdale star Dominic Power has admitted that his family are not keen on his latest storyline.
The actor plays Cameron Murray in the Dales drama who is currently cheating on girlfriend Debbie Dingle with her aunt Chas.
Dominic told The Sun: "My mum hates it.
"She watches all the soaps and like lots of people she records them. She then fast-forwards the storylines she doesn't like... I'm currently being forwarded.
"She sent me a text recently saying, `Will you tell the writers your mother is a good Catholic girl and she does not like her son doing this?' I said to her, `Mum, you were a teacher. You are an educated woman -- this is fiction!'
"She texted back, `Ha ha!' "
His mum is not the only family member who is unhappy with his character's bed-hopping ways.
Powers said: My 16-year-old daughter sent me a text with a picture of me in bed saying, `Will you stop this?'
"My children are actually dead proud which is nice and Emmerdale has become part of their lives, which it wasn't before.
"When I got the job my son said, `Why couldn't you get Waterloo Road?' That would have been cool for him."
Dominic is currently single but said since becoming a Dales bad boy he has gained some admirers.
He said: "My twitter following has increased since I turned into a bit of a rat.
"It seems women must like a bad boy."
