Emma Atkins, 47, said she wished she’d worn something dressier after realizing her boyfriend’s 30th birthday party was actually their wedding anniversary. Charley Webb surprised friends and family by marrying Matthew Wolfenden at her birthday party
Emmerdale star Emma Atkins said she was “devastated” to find out she was Charley Webb’s bridesmaid.
The soap favorite thought she was attending her co-star’s 30th birthday party, when in fact it was her secret wedding to Matthew Wolfenden.
Emma ended up being one of the bridesmaids but said she was “gutted” that she wasn’t dressed for the occasion.
Accompanied by co-star Lucy Pargeter for the video interview, Emma recounted OK! magazine : “I was disappointed because I didn’t look that great and she had said to me ‘make sure you look good’ and I was like ‘okay, it’s only a 30th’.
“When it turned out that I was one of the bridesmaids, I was absolutely devastated,” she added.
Emma had worn a black smock dress with flowers sewn into the material with black tights and boots for Thurs 2018.
Though she didn’t feel the part, Emma, who plays Charity Dingle, said the wedding was “brilliant.”
Charley and Matthew said “I do” after meeting on the set of the ITV soap in 2007.
They have since had three children together – Buster, 11, Bowie, five, and Ace, two.
The couple’s 100 guests arrived at Ripley Castle in Harrogate before receiving the surprising news that Charley and Matthew were actually getting married.
After the pair were asked to reveal their most embarrassing moments on set, Lucy revealed how she struggled with wind.
She said she was “cancelled” during filming during the pandemic: “My wind just happens, it just comes out, so I was told by someone I don’t put a mask on when I burp, so that was really quite embarrassing .”
Emma’s moment was when she got dressed and noticed there was a lump in her jeans, she fished around to see what it was and pulled out a panty in front of the costume crew.
Although, Lucy could top that and said she’d done the same thing once, but in a restaurant.
Lucky for Lucy, who plays Chas Dingle, she said the person she was having dinner with at the time “knew her pants.”
The women shared a few secrets, revealing that the village hair salon is actually their dressing room.
They said that there is a special button that makes the chimney smoke, and that the wool pack is just a shell and is actually empty.
When they discussed what they liked most about being on the soap opera, they agreed it was the “people.” They praised the cast and crew, adding that Emmerdale had a good atmosphere.
