Like every expectant parent, Chas and Paddy have been preparing for the arrival of their unborn baby, which is due any day now.
But unlike most births, the Emmerdale couple won’t get the chance to see their child grow up.
Viewers know that Chas and Paddy’s baby Grace has been diagnosed with bilateral renal agenesis and won’t survive long after being born.
Fans can expect extremely emotional scenes coming up as Chas goes in to labour and the pair welcome and then say goodbye to their baby girl.
But Lucy Pargeter reveals that the scenes should surprise viewers, too.
In an interview published in The Sun, she revealed that watchers will be “smiling through their tears”.
Explaining how they hope the episode will help people going through similar experiences, she said: “It’s not your typical episode.
“I was pleased to see it because I didn’t want to do as much harrowing birth [acting] and everything.”
She added: “It will hopefully have people smiling through their tears as well as being deeply upset by it.”
Admitting that the scenes have been some of the most “difficult” she’s ever filmed, Lucy revealed she didn’t have to dig too deep to find the emotions as both she and Dominic Brunt [who plays Paddy] have young children.
She continued: “We’ve had to go to some pretty dark places.
“It’s been difficult but the writing has been so beautiful and the topic is so emotive anyway that it’s been ridiculously harrowing and really hard but, as I say, we’re not going through it – we get to go home to our beautiful kids and we’ve been lucky to have healthy kids.”
The emotional scenes will air in the next few weeks.
