Emmerdale spoilers – Tracy and David Metcalfe caught kissing – DigitalSpy.com
16 April 2019 MUSIC
Emmerdale fans will see ex-couple David and Tracy Metcalfe share a surprise kiss next week.
The pair give into temptation after David (Matthew Wolfenden) is left heartbroken by his current partner Maya Stepney.
The trouble starts when David confides in his stepson Jacob Gallagher about how he’s planning to propose to Maya (Louisa Clein) with Val’s ring.
Jacob is horrified by the news as he’s stolen the ring to raise money to pay off Liv Flaherty, who’s currently blackmailing him and Maya over their disturbing relationship.
While Jacob is busy fretting, Maya agrees to go clubbing with David and some of the other girls from the village.
Realising she needs to take control of the situation, Maya tells David that she knows about his proposal plan and gently encourages him not to go ahead with it.
Feeling stung by this rejection, David seeks solace in Tracy at the club and they kiss – unaware that Maya is watching.
It’s this moment that sends Maya into a spin and ultimately leads to her downfall, as she storms out of the club and later gets spotted with Jacob by one of the female villagers.
Amy Walsh, who plays Tracy, revealed: “David is feeling a bit sad and lonely. He confides in Tracy about the troubles he and Maya have had for the past few months. She tells him, for the first time, that she doesn’t think Maya is right for him.
“I never wanted it to look like Tracy was jealous and it comes in a really natural way. As much as I believe she probably still loves David, I do think she’s happy to let him go and move on, until Maya has started being a little bit fractious with her.
“She’s got an inkling in the last few months that she’s being ostracised from the family, which has been quite hard for her as she’s very loyal. Once she loves people, she’ll be there for them.”
Asked about the kiss itself, Amy continued: “I don’t think Tracy still holds a candle for David. It’s more to do with that fact that they’ve had a bit to drink and they’re physically close because they can’t hear over the music. They have a very honest moment where they talk about being there for each other.
“I genuinely think from Tracy’s perspective, it’s the comfort of it all and it doesn’t feel wrong because he used to be hers, this was her world.
“David is coming from a different angle. David is David – he always jumps on to the next thing to try and block out the other. It’s more to do with having had a drink and he feels lonely and unloved by Maya.”
Unsurprisingly, Maya’s reaction will be one to watch after she witnesses the kiss and lashes out.
Amy added: “When Maya sees the kiss, Tracy’s quite defensive. They’ve already pulled away and said: ‘This is ridiculous, what are we doing?’ It was a very fleeting kiss which doesn’t make it right, but in that moment she wants to explain. She doesn’t want to be the perpetrator and be in the middle of all this.
“But then Maya starts hurling abuse at her and Tracy starts to think Maya’s not who she’s been making herself out to be. She storms off and Tracy finds her in the toilet to try and explain it wasn’t just her and tells her to speak to David. Tracy sees it as David shirking responsibility for his actions.”
Emmerdale airs these scenes on Thursday, April 25 at 7pm and 8pm on ITV.
