Emmerdale's Lucy: 'Carl admits he loves Chas'

Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter reveals to Soaplife that Chas is stunned when she realises Carl isn't really after her money... He wants her love! He's just got a funny way of showing it! Does Chas believe Carl really would tell Debbie about her affair with Cameron? "Yes and she's terrified. Chas is desperate to keep Carl quiet about her affair. Letting this secret come out is just not an option for her." In fact she's so desperate she lets Carl talk her into robbing The Woolpack to get his money! "Carl rings her and menacingly suggests she uses the pub takings to pay him back. Chas tells Cameron to steal the cash as she can't take it from Diane. She's deeply shaken, but Carl says he wants the money by the next day." But the robbery goes wrong so Cameron sells his van to raise the cash. What happens when Chas takes the money to Carl? "He gets very intense and Chas realises it was never about the money - that's worthless to him. It's about him and her. Later he admits he loves her. He says he wants to be back with her and they belong together. Chas is shocked." Does she want Carl? "She's completely determined to marry Dan and get back to normality. She just wants to get the wedding over and done with as quickly as possible. Carl's getting scarily involved with her life. He seems to be obsessed with her again and loving the fact he can control her like a puppet." Is she really in love with Dan? "She sees in Dan everything that she had hoped she'd find in Carl and Cameron. Dan totally adores her and would do anything for her. With Dan she sees security and she loves him for the person he is." Ah, yes... Cameron. Is she really over him? "She does still have feelings for him, but she has to get on with her life. She might go back to him if he could completely convince her he wasn't going to change his mind. Jeepers! Can you imagine trying to live in the village as a couple around Debbie and the family?"
