Emmerdale star Lucy Pargeter has claimed that her character Chas Dingle can see a future with Dan Spencer.
Next week, viewers will see villagers shocked after Chas decides to marry Dan (Liam Fox).
Chas decides to get hitched despite being on the rebound from her secret relationship with Cameron Murray.
However, Pargeter insists that Chas can genuinely see the good in Dan.
She told All About Soap: "They've been flirting across the bar for a few weeks, but now something is changing.
"Chas sees everything in Dan that she saw in Paddy - security and a complete selfless devotion.
"He'd never dream of cheating on her, or treat her the way Carl and Cameron did. Chas is starting to wonder whether she could settle down with Dan full time."
Discussing Dan's proposal to Chas in The Woolpack, Lucy added: "It's all a bit awkward to be honest, especially as Cameron sees the whole thing.
"However, Chas is over the moon. She can see a happy future with Dan, even if she is marrying him because he's a safe bet."
Emmerdale bosses have hinted that Chas's love life will be a big part of the soap's 40th anniversary episodes.
Pargeter said: "Never mind twists and turns - this time there are going to be falls, climbs and loads of other obstacles. Where is all this going to end? We'll have to wait and see.
"Everything is going to come to a head in Emmerdale's big 40th birthday celebration in October, so I'd say stay tuned."
