Emmerdale viewers have begged the ITV soap to bring in some ‘fresh talent’ after another cast member has confirmed they’re leaving.
And by that, they mean some young, hot totty!
This week, news broke that Anthony Quinlan will be leaving the Dales in the coming months.
The actor, who plays Pete Barton, will be exiting the soap to pursue other projects – which, of course, means that the last of the Barton men will be gone.
Viewers know that Ross left the village earlier this year, while Adam is currently on the run after being imprisoned for a crime he did not commit…
Writing on Digital Spy Forums, one viewer said: “Yet another Emmerdale actor quits the soap.”
Another responded by saying: “No totty left in the programme now, just women and kids.”
“The young(er) male cast are diminishing very fast, especially given that we’ve lost big characters like Andy, Ross and Adam, in the last few years. There’s just Aaron, Billy, Matty and Ryan in that age bracket – unless I’ve missed someone.”
“What is going on at Emmerdale? Everyone seems to be leaving. There hardly seems to be any young men in it and loads of single women,” asked one more.
Another said: “Goodbye Prozac Pete. You were really quite handsome under that woolly hat you always wore at the start. The auntie fixation was gross, but you did give Rhona a good time.”
Many others begged the show’s bosses to bring in a new family “to breathe some life into the show”.
One stated: “The show needs a bit of a shake up. I don’t care for most of the characters now.”
While Moira is still in Emmerdale, her character has become much hated of late after her passionate affair with Nate Robinson.
Could she follow Pete out of the village to make room for a new family?
