Emmerdale star Danny Miller, who plays Aaron Dingle, has revealed his fears over returning to work.

The actor, who went back to filming on Wednesday (May 20), recently revealed on Twitter that everyone was "anxious" of the changes they were going to face.

He tweeted: "Wow - it was so good to be back in Aaron's house with his lodger.

"The Aaron and Cain episode was the first of the six episodes to be shot out of that block and under the new structures and rules so everyone was naturally anxious of how and what changes we would face."

The news of the six special lockdown episodes was revealed yesterday (Thursday, May 21) during This Morning.

Danny was filming alongside co-star Jeff Hordley, who plays Aaron's uncle Cain Dingle.
