Emmerdale star Natalie J Robb has been discussing her upcoming romance storyline.
The 37-year-old actress, who plays Moira Barton, is to start a fling with farm worker Alex Moss, played by 21-year-old Kurtis Stacey.
Discussing their first romance scene, Robb told the Daily Record: "He starts taking his top off in the house and there's a lot of torso showing.
"It's not a bad body, I have to say, and I'm getting paid to look at it."
"Moira thinks he's quite sweet, and when he splits up with his girlfriend she starts to fancy him."
However, Natalie admitted she found it strange kissing Kurtis, saying: "It's not because he is young, more the way he kissed me. I thought, 'Right, you've been thinking about that, sunshine'. He just went for it.
"The producer said to me afterwards, 'I can't believe I'm putting this on at 7pm'. He said the scenes looked fantastic but he was worried about the watershed."
Robb revealed that in real-life she often dates younger men, however not as young as her co-star.
She said: "They're getting younger as I'm getting older but you're as old as the man you feel!
"I'm not talking a massive age gap... possibly six years tops. I probably looked older when I was 22 than I do now.
"Age isn't an issue to me. I don't know why Harry from One Direction gets so much criticism for dating older women. He's enjoying life and maybe he just prefers girls who are older.
"He's a little bit young for me though - he's what you call just out of the wrapper."
