Emmerdale’s Tony Audenshaw has revealed why the show will look so different this week amid the current cornoavirus restrictions.
The cast and crew have returned to set despite the pandemic, however, they are adhering to all of the social distancing guidelines – including the two-metre rule – to help stall the spread of Covid-19.
But, fans might notice the actors getting close to one another in the next few installments, as the Bob Hope star explained the upcoming episodes were filmed before the global crisis.
Appearing on Lorraine today, the 55-year-old opened up on what it’s like to be back on set.
He said: ‘It is very different it has taken some getting used to. The main difference is, I have got to do my own hair and makeup, as we all do – and my daughter has given me a great haircut.’
Showing off his new do, the actor beamed: ‘First of all to match up episodes going out this week – we filmed some of it in the middle of March and some of it 10 days ago, so she had to look at a picture and cut my hair the same style it was then so it matched.’
The host, Lorraine Kelly, then quizzed her guest about the changes on set, and how it has affected the soap.
‘You’re limited to a certain number of people on set, mainly because of the two-metre rule,’ Tony stated.
‘I was due to be in an episode in a couple of weeks’ time, and simply because they can’t get five people on the set, I have been cut out of that episode and that’s how it is.’
But viewers need not worry about the chances for some time, as he reassured them: ‘People will be hugging and kissing this week because some were filmed before lockdown.’
Bob’s story line is currently getting more and more complicated as he tries to keep Wendy (Susan Cookson) sweet, despite her constant texting.
Revealing what fans can expect, Tony teased a little of what lies ahead for the couple.
‘Yeah, it has been unfortunate,’ he said of their relationship. ‘The last thing with the love letter and now she keeps getting these texts all the time.
‘He is fearing the worst, he thinks she might be seeing someone else, he doesn’t know what is happening, really.’
