The feud between Emmerdale's Charity and Chas descends into a full scale food fight (ITV)

The feud between Emmerdale's Charity and Chas Dingle is about to explode into all-out war, according to the stars who play them.

Speaking at a recent press event, Lucy Pargeter explains that her character Chas will take a job at the B&B after rejecting new landlady Charity's offer, which she sees “as an opportunity to be in big competition with the Woolie.”

Co-star Emma Atkins says that in the wake of this revelation, her alter ego reverts to type. “I guess when Charity’s confronted in that way, she just goes ‘right, this is war!’ I just think it’s game on.”

Chas accepts a job at the B&B with Pollard (ITV)

“It’s rooted in sincerity, really,” Pargeter says. “It’s all the past two years of them being at each other’s throats, so all these things get brought up and then it all gets blown up. It doesn’t put a plaster over it, but it’s been coming for a long time.”

The argument soon turns into a food fight, and the stars didn’t always relish the filming process.

“The thought of doing a food fight [in] the village which is at least 20 degrees colder than anywhere else in the world in January, involving wet food stuffs wasn’t appealing at all,” Pargeter explains.

Years of pent up anger explodes between the cousins (ITV)

“Although weirdly, adrenaline always seems to kick in in these moments, when you think ‘this is going to be awful’,” adds Atkins.

“It was awful!” laughs Pargeter. “There was one bit, [Emma] said ‘I don’t like anything going in my ear’ so during this fight, I did manage to tip an entire bowl of melted chocolate on her head but kindly avoided her ear!”

“I think we love each other so much as people and as human beings, I don’t care what I’m doing with [Emma] as long as I’m doing something with her,” Pargeter says of their working relationship.

Atkins agrees. “There’s a lot of trust there, I think. We have a friendship to begin with anyway, that always helps. There’s a lovely understanding, a lot of respect.”
