Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden has confirmed that his alter ego David Metcalfe will start a romance with Priya Sharma in coming weeks.
Fans have already seen the chemistry between the pair as David confided in Priva about the truth behind his sham wedding.
David married Alicia Gallagher so he would have custody of her adopted son Jacob during her time in jail.
Discussing David's future, Wolfenden told Inside Soap: "He's still playing daddy to Jacob, but he's also set to develop a soft spot for Priya.
"They're going to go off for secret snogs in the woods!"
Meanwhile, Wolfenden revealed that his real-life girlfriend Charley Webb (Debbie Dingle) will have a big role to play in the show's 40th anniversary live episode.
He said: "I'm one of the lucky ones, because I'm not doing too much!
"But Charley is doing an awful lot. She's got one of the biggest parts in it."
