Emmerdale's Natalie J Robb reveals she broke her toe filming saucy scenes

Moira and Nate have been having an affair for months

Natalie J. Robb broke her toe filming saucy scenes in a tiny caravan on Emmerdale.

The former Dream Team star, who plays Moira Dingle in the ITV soap, took one for the team when she "soldiered on" after fracturing one of her little toes during an intimate segment with Jurell Carter, who portrays Moira's bit on the side, farmhand Nate Robinson.

Jurell joked: "The caravan is so small. I'm 6ft 3ins and the caravan is tiny, we have to do loads of intimate scenes in there."

Natalie said: "I fractured my little pinky toe in the caravan doing a love scene. It was all the somersaults. I soldiered on."

Moira and Nate's affair came crashing down earlier this week when her husband Cain Dingle, played by Jeff Hordley, found out, leading to a brawl on a boat.

Natalie admits she was a bit out of her "comfort zone" with some of the water stunts, but not as a much as Jurell who had to learn to swim especially for the scenes.

Speaking in a joint interview on Lorraine, he added: "I couldn't swim.

"Before the storyline came about I spoke to Jeff and he spoke to the production manager, and he mentioned about the swimming stunt.

"I said to him, 'I can't swim,' and I think there was a massive panic. But it was the nudge I needed. I took swimming lessons, and I can now swim. It was the nudge I needed, so it was really good.
