Emmerdale star Mike Parr has hinted at a possible sex twist between his character Ross Barton and Rhona Goskirk, played by Zoe Henry.
Speaking on This Morning Mike teased that Ross could repeat history by betraying his brother Pete again, three years after sleeping with his fiancee Debbie Dingle behind his back.
Rhona and Ross have bonded recently over Ross’s addiction to painkillers as Rhona herself has previously battled the same addiction.
Rhona is currently keeping Ross’s drug habit a secret from Pete but has made it clear this is the only time she will lie for him.
Mike revealed: “She’s helping him because she’s been through it and it’s so planned you might be able to predict what’s going to happen, or is it not going to happen, how is it going to play out?
“He has a habit of sleeping with his brother’s partners!
“She’s kind of on his side as she realises he’s going through a lot and trying to do what’s best, and obviously they’ve got a bond. It’s got disaster written all over it. Of course the secret is going to get out – there’s no secrets in soap!”
Ross has been using prescription painkillers to cope since having a skin graft to help his face heal.
He was left scarred for life earlier this year when Simon McManus threw acid in his face in a case of mistaken identity.
Since then he’s struggled to come to terms with the fact his appearance will never be the same again and has sunk into a depression.

He hoped to reunite with Debbie but she left him heartbroken when she told him she didn’t love him.
So will Ross seek solace in Rhona’s arms?
