Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) meets a new man named Ben (Simon Lennon) in Emmerdale, but is he ready to move on from husband Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley)?
Aaron and Robert’s love story was certainly one for the ages, but a cruel twist resulted in the latter being sent to prison for manslaughter, meaning that Robron was torn apart.
Aaron was devastated at the loss of his beloved husband, but almost a year later, and he’s seemingly set to embark on a new romance.
But is he really ready to move on from the love of his life?
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, actor Danny Miller said: ‘I think the Robert thing, from Robert’s point of view, he’s said “it’s dead and buried”. He’s going to be in prison for the foreseeable future, he told him to move on and everything, and it’s been quite hard for him.
‘He doesn’t necessarily want to move on because of how much love he’s got for Robert, but he knows he has to move on otherwise he’ll find himself in the dark hole that he was many years ago. I think he’s certainly ready to allow somebody into his life again and trust them.
‘I think Ben is entirely different. I think in some ways, Robert was the rock of the relationship, he was the anchor, and he would be the one that would make everything work together, and because of that, he almost sort of needed Robert.
‘Whereas in this situation, I think he feels as though he’s the one having to drive the relationship almost, because he owes an apology, he owes an explanation.
He wants to make up for it and because of that, that means he has to really work at this, which makes him almost the one who’s running the relationship, or is certainly trying to drive it forward.
‘It’s a tough one, because Robert was such a big part of Aaron’s life, when someone then goes and creates a big hole in your life like Robert did, it’s difficult to fill it. But I think he’s doing his best to try it, and Ben seems like a very down to earth, genuine lad whose obviously got similar interests.’
