Pargeter: Chas settles for Dan
Lucy Pargeter says Chas Dingle thinks it is about time she chose the nice guy, even if she doesn't love him
Emmerdale star Lucy Pargeter has said her character Chas Dingle is just settling when she gets engaged to Dan Spencer.
Chas is embroiled in a risky romance with her pregnant niece Debbie's boyfriend Cameron, who is prepared to leave the mum-to-be for his new flame.
But when nice guy Dan, played by Liam Fox, asks her to marry him, Chas chooses Dan over Cameron.
Lucy said: "Chas thinks what does matter in life is someone who loves you unconditionally and will never treat you bad and be there for you through think and thin.
"She's never had that before apart from with Paddy and now Paddy's married she thinks 'Oh I should have stayed with someone like Paddy, so I think I'll settle for that. What more could a girl want'."
The actress added: "She's not IN love with him. She is happy because she can see a possible future of security and happiness, instead of the hell she's been through.
"It's not who she should be with, it's who she thinks she should be with."
With a wedding to play, Chas still has to battle her feelings for Cameron and Lucy revealed the storyline has a long way to go, before having a major part in Emmerdale's live 40th anniversary episode later this year.
Lucy revealed: "There'll be more than a few twists and turns, falls and climbs and it all comes to a head on the 40th."
