Actor Jurell Carter, who plays Nate Robinson in Emmerdale, has revealed he initially auditioned for a different role in the soap.
The actor plays farmhand Nate but recently revealed he first tried out for the role of Billy Fletcher, played by Jay Kontzle.
Jurell lost out on the part to Jay, but it all worked out as he came into the soap a few months later as the farmhand.
Speaking to The Daily Star, Jurell said: "I was seen for the part of Billy and was a bit gutted when I didn't get it. I'd also met Jay during the audition process.
"But now, having watched Billy's character develop, I was definitely more suited to Nate. So it all worked out.
"I'm still the same Jurell but sometimes I forget that I'm on a massive show. I'll be at home in Leicester in my local supermarket and just forget."The pair have been sneaking around for months, however it looks like it could all come to a dramatic end.
