Emmerdale star Natalie Anderson has admitted that filming a love plot with Alicia left her feeling emotional.
The actress is currently pregnant with her first child and said her hormones made her tearful over her alter-ego's heartbreak because of David.
David proposed to Alicia earlier this month in a bid to help her keep her son Jacob.
She goes ahead with the wedding even though she knows her ex, Justin, is not fighting for custody.
Anderson told Inside Soap: "It made me cry! As a viewer, I think you're going to see all the happiness and then all the heartbreak play out."
On the even of the ceremony, David hurts Alicia by saying they will divorce quickly.
Natalie said: "She's really heartbroken. She just says, 'Get me a drink!' That comment brings Alicia straight back down to earth.
"She'd love the fairytale that's going on in her head to be real, but that's not going to happen."
