Emmerdale star Dominic Power has revealed that he has found his recent sex scenes ‘embarrassing’.
The actor’s soap character Cameron Murray has been having an affair with Chas Dingle over the last few months and has had to strip off to film some of the pair’s saucy love scenes.
Speaking to The Sun about filming, he said: “It’s always a little bit awkward when you are stripped. You do try to get a couple of gym sessions in beforehand!
“When I get the scripts and see it’s coming there’s no carbs until it’s over. I’ve been down to my boxer shirts a few times and it’s a bit odd because everyone else is stood in front of you fully clothed.”
Dominic has also revealed that his mum and daughter disapprove of his on-screen love life and want his soap character to be a good boy.
“My 16-year-old daughter [also] sent me a text with a picture of me in bed saying, ‘Will you stop this?’” he explained.
“My mum [also] watches all the soaps and 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, ‘Haha!’”
