Emmerdale star Jessie Elland has opened up on her real-life friendship with ‘incredible’ co-star Emma Atkins.
The pair’s respective characters, Chloe Harris and Charity Dingle, have been involved in a chaotic love triangle with Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) – with Chloe planning revenge on the pair after Mack finally chose to reunite estranged wife Charity.
He destroyed his marriage to Charity (Emma) by sleeping with Chloe (Jessie) after an argument with Charity in the aftermath of her suffering a devastating miscarriage. Charity lashed out and told him to spread his seed elsewhere, and the stupid man went off and literally did exactly
Speaking ahead of the big showdown, actress Jessie praised her relationship with Chloe telling Digital Spy: ‘Emma is incredible to work with, we get on far better than Chloe and Charity do (thank goodness).
‘She’s such an amazing actress, I’ve learnt so much from working with her.’
She added: ‘I’d jump at any excuse to keep working together so I’d be all for a storyline of them both teaming up to bin Mackenzie off.’

This comes after Jessie revealed what lies in store in the run up to Christmas.
‘In all her excitement for their first family Christmas, Chloe decorates the house early to surprise Mackenzie; even buying him a Santa outfit to wear for Reuben,’ the actress said.
‘It’s at this moment that Mackenzie blurts out that they are over. Chloe is beyond crushed and knows instantly that Charity is involved.’
Determined not to give Mack the satisfaction of seeing her upset, she brushes him off in a cold manner, only to cry to sister Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) later.
‘Chloe tries to hide how devastated she is by acting cold and numb, but this is only a bid to protect herself and her pride, as soon as she is alone, and with Amy we she just how utterly bereft she is: it’s one of her biggest fears finally realised.
However, Chloe can’t keep her cool in front of Mack for long, especially when she spots him kissing Charity in the middle of the street, as Jessie explained.
‘I think she’s embarrassed being taken for a fool; to think that Charity and Mackenzie were together, or at least planning to be while she was wilfully oblivious and trying to play happy families.’
