Members of the Emmerdale cast have been filming in Whitby for the fourth day in succession. Today saw them at sea filming on John Whitton’s boat Never Can Tell A. The word from a local man in the know is that the whole cast – with the exception of Pauline Quirk – were sea sick!
Although those involved in the shoot have been sworn to secrecy, word on the grapevine suggests that Jackson Walsh (played by actor Marc Silcock) is to be written out of the ITV soap and may meet his maker in Whitby.
Last month there were rumours of a possible assisted suicide storyline involving Aaron and Jackson, although this has yet to be confirmed.
Here are a few shots that Real Whitby News managed to get hold of from Thursday’s filming:
Updated: Marc Silcock, Danny Miller and Pauline Quirke have been spotted filming scenes in a boat off the coast of Whitby, leading many to wonder where this will leave Jackson. Despite speculation about a possible watery grave for Jackson, we can confirm that this fishy tale is far from true.
“They are not filming exit scenes for Jackson,” said our official source.
Phew! Poor Jackson has enough on his plate already, paralysed from the neck down after a train crash, without being man overboard as well. The three actors who play mother, son and his boyfriend, have been on location for the last four days, taking a break from their usual filming haunts in Yorkshire and getting some sea air.
