Pargeter: Wedding dress was awful
Lucy Pargeter plays bride-to-be Chastity Dingle in Emmerdale
Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter has revealed the Emmerdale costume designer almost refused to make Chastity Dingle's wedding dress - because it was so ugly.
Lucy's character Chas is set to marry Dan Spencer in an hour-long live episode next month to celebrate the ITV1 soap's 40th anniversary, and the soap star helped costume designer Anita Massarella create the dress for the big day.
Lucy revealed: "Anita does all of our wedding dresses at Emmerdale - she's just based literally up the road and is the most amazing seamstress. When we came up for the concept for the dress, she was extremely gutted, very disappointed and she almost refused to make it because it's so horrendous.
"We tried to make it look like it had come from eBay or somewhere really nasty. And Anita doesn't do nasty, she does amazing. She kept on saying 'If I just tweak it, if I could just finish that seam off...' and we were like 'No! Don't finish it off, don't make it look nice, leave it.'
"She really went to town on Sammy's [Winward] wedding dress though, so she had the nice as well as the awful. I had the most amazing dress by her though when I was getting married to Carl, so I've had the nice frock, this one had to be practical and more in character."
Liam Fox, who plays Dan, confessed: "I thought it looked glamorous, but that says a lot about me!"
