“I’ve never done anything like that episode before.”

Emmerdale stars Mark Charnock and Zoe Henry have spoken about a big episode coming up for their characters Marlon Dingle and Rhona Goskirk.

Marlon and Rhona were recently announced for a special edition of the ITV soap, which will break from the show’s usual format.

The scenes focus on a dinner party as Marlon and Rhona socialise with Tom and Belle King.

Marlon and Rhona’s marriage has faced challenges in recent months due to Rhona’s fight for baby Ivy. Meanwhile, Emmerdale has been exploring issues of domestic abuse and coercive control in Tom and Belle’s relationship.

The teen’s time at work suddenly improves as a handsome customer arrives. She enjoys fixing his car, and sparks fly between the pair, although Cain is bemused by her unexpected change in mood.

Back home, Sarah confides in her grandmother Charity about how well her job is going.

Charity is proud of Sarah’s efforts, but Mackenzie is rattled when Sarah suggests that she might be replacing him at the garage. Is Mackenzie’s job under threat?

Speaking recently about Mackenzie’s future, Lawrence Robb – who plays Mackenzie – told Digital Spy: “At the moment I’m expecting it to be a little bit quieter for Mackenzie – and Charity, I guess. But it’s Emmerdale so you never know. There’s always something that they’ve got planned for each of the characters.

“I’m enjoying having a little bit of a break because I’ve been quite full-on for the last year at least!”

Asked about the possibility of more criminal hijinks between Mack and Aaron Dingle, he replied: “I do enjoy working with Danny [Miller, who plays Aaron]. It’s always a laugh. There’s a lot of hilarity when we’re on set together. I hope so but at the moment I’m not sure.

“I think it might be a little bit quieter now for Mackenzie for a little bit. It would be nice to see some of the hijinks that Aaron and Mackenzie get up to.”

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
