Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden accidentally got drunk while filming

Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden has recalled some of his earlier scenes of the soap which saw him accidentally get drunk while filming as David Metcalfe – not realising that the booze that he was drinking was alcoholic.

The actor – who in real life is married to co-star Charley Webb – was fairly early in his Emmerdale career and at the time, the pints that were pulled were indeed boozy.

Speaking on ITV show Emmerdale: Soapy Slip Ups, he confessed: ‘I was on my second day of the job when I was filming in The Woolpack. I didn’t know this fact. I had a stage direction that David downs his pint and storms out.

‘He’d had an argument with Eric, and I kept doing this and this, and I was sober at the beginning and by the end…’

That’s certainly an interesting start to a job.

The actor has been in the show since 2006 and has been at the centre of many storylines over the years, including several turbulent romances, a testicular cancer plotline and the controversial child abuse affair between Maya and Jacob.

Off screen, Matthew and Charley have children Buster, 10, Bowie, four, and 15-month-old Ace.

The ITV programme will feature many unseen bloopers and outtakes from the cast and crew of the Dales.

And we’re sure that a sozzled David is just one of many interesting behind the scenes stories…
