Emmerdale actor Dominic Brunt has spoken about the shows current gay storyline and how the writers have tackled a different stance on the realisation of your sexuality.

In the interview, Brunt, who plays Paddy Kirk, stated that he feels the storyline surrounding Dales character Aaron Livesy, played by Danny Miller, is different from other soaps as the character is reluctant to accept his sexuality.

According to the Associated Press Brunt said: "The gay thing has been tackled by soaps forever, but it's differently done because he didn't arrive gay - he's almost a homophobic homosexual because he doesn't like what he is at all."

"His peer group don't like gay lads.

He even punched a gay lad in the past to get in with his mates. It's just really interesting because he's really fighting it.

"It's done more realistically than I've seen in a soap. There have been gay storylines in here before but [in this one] there are no cliches whatsoever. It's just fantastically done."

The longstanding actor hopes that this storyline will help other people who watch the soap come to terms with their sexuality. The storyline which has had many fixed to the TV shows the young man live in fear of what people will think – a fear that many feel.

"I think there'll be people out there that don't know what they are, or they've been hiding it, and I think this will help. All Aaron's problems, anything that goes wrong is his own thoughts. He's his own worst enemy, no one else is bothered."

Emmerdale is on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 19:00 and on a Thursday at 19:00 and 20:00 on ITV1
