Tilly joined Emmerdale in 2016 as Dotty alongside fellow child actor Ellerie Carroll, however Tilly is now the only actress to play the part.

Alfie has been playing Arthur for 10 years, joining the soap in 2009.

Currently Arthur is at the centre of a bullying storyline.

Arthur has been bullying Archie Breckle, the son of his mum Laurel’s boyfriend, Jai.

Back in September Archie was brought back to Emmerdale village after the sudden death of his mum Rachel.

Archie’s uncle Dan brought the little boy to live with Jai.

For the first few weeks Archie didn’t speak a word, until Arthur managed to bring him out of shis shell.

However Arthur soon became jealous of the attention Archie was getting and began tormenting him.

After Arthur knocked Archie unconscious, Laurel and Jai found bruises on the little boy and questioned where they had come from, but Arthur lied blaming family friend Jimmy King.

A couple of weeks ago, Archie slapped Jimmy’s daughter Angelica after she and Arthur had been cruel to him.

Seeing this, Jimmy pulled Archie off his daughter, but when Archie ran away, Jai was quick to blame Jimmy, not knowing that Arthur had encourage him too.

When Arthur learned Archie had really run away, he went to the woods, where he knew he would be, and bullied him into coming home.

Although Arthur picks on Archie in the soap, in real life, actors Alfie and Kai Assi, who plays Archie, are “best buddies”.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
