Dominic went back to work a few weeks ago

Emmerdale star Dominic Brunt has admitted he got “snappy” on set filming the lockdown episodes, as he revealed he found the process “terrifying”.

A couple of weeks ago, the ITV soap returned to filming to produce six special lockdown episodes. One of those episodes features Dominic’s alter ego Paddy and Paddy’s girlfriend Chas.

Today (Monday, June 22) the actor appeared on Good Morning Britain with Lorraine to talk about the episode. But he confessed that he found it all “terrifying” and got “a bit snappy”.

He said: “It was like 58 pages in a day or something like that. So we basically had to go from learning nothing for three months to leaning basically a 25-minute conversation between two people, so it was terrifying.

“And Lucy always knows what she’s doing and knows all of her lines so you just have to get everything ready.

“I definitely hit a wall by the end of the day and was a bit snappy. I had to make some phones calls that night just to apologise to some people because I was like ‘I can’t do it, I can’t do it, I need a glass of water.'”
