The cast of Emmerdale have revealed all on filming an explosion and underwater stunt.

It’s going to be a huge week on the ITV soap as Cain finally discovers his wife Moira has been cheating on him with farmhand Nate.

The buddies are divers who stay with you underwater to make sure you always have access to air.

As Cain lures them to the fishing boat and they head out on the lake, he confronts Nate and all hell breaks loose, eventually leading to an explosion.

Speaking about filming the dramatic scenes, Jeff Hordley, who plays Cain, said: “I am just thrilled to not only be working on the show but to be given the opportunity to do the high octane stunts and sequences such as underwater and diving it is a real thrill.

“Filming like this is exciting as you step outside your normal limits and push yourself. It then becomes a great sense of achievement.”

“I was very anxious about the underwater sequence to begin with, but once I had acclimatised to the surroundings and being in a water tank it was better.

“Personally I love snorkeling, going underwater and seeing marine life when I’m on holiday but this was a bit different.”

Natalie J Robb, who plays Moira, also admitted to having some trepidation about going under water.

She said: “Before we started I was apprehensive, but we had buddies underwater. I had a buddy called Wayne.

“The buddies are divers who stay with you underwater to make sure you always have access to air.

“Jeff’s buddy was called Matt and they are really reassuring as they gave us so much confidence.”

Natalie also revealed the regulator would remove the air and she would hold her breath whilst filming before they returned to make sure she had air.

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