Fellow Emmerdale actor Lucy Pargeter has praised the writers of the show for tackling the gay story line from a different angle in a hope that it will reach out to many other young men battling with their own acceptance of being gay.

Over recent weeks viewers have seen seen Aaron Livesy (Danny Miller), who is the son to Pargeter’s on screen character Chastity Dingle, come out as gay. The storyline has kept people around the nation gripped to the TV as they saw the young ‘tough guy’ come to terms with his sexuality.

Speaking on This Morning the actress said: "Emmerdale's done it fantastically.



"A gay storyline isn't new, it isn't groundbreaking, but I think it's the fact that they've [used] a lad such as Aaron. I hope it's been really true to [life]."

Miller has reportedly struggled with some abuse from the general public since taking on the gay storyline and on a number of occasions has found himself being heckled in the establishments he used to go to.

"He's a young lad and I think when he's out in places that he used to go out in, I think a lot of lads can feel threatened by a lad that's on the telly and [it's] anything they can throw at him to knock his confidence and try to get one up over him."
