Emmerdale’s Anthony Quinlan admitted he hurt his crown jewels during tonight’s wedding scenes in the Dales.
A funny twist during tonight’s show saw bride and groom, Leyla Harding and Pete Barton, both decide to do a runner from their wedding only to get stuck making a jump for it out of a toilet window.
The scenes took several hours to film leaving the two actors in an uncomfortable position – especially Anthony.
The soap’s top boss, Iain MacLeod teased: “I was told, and I don’t know if this is true, that they had to go and get Anthony a protective device to make sure he didn’t injure himself!”
Anthony added: “Yeah, they got me a child size cricket box! Obviously it didn’t fit! By the time it came we’d actually done most of the filming and I was in pain!
“I had a props guy holding onto my legs from behind the window. We were sticking out of the windows for a long time and it was right in my groin!
“Oh no, don’t quote me on the box! I can see the headline already, ‘Anthony’s got a child sized box!’.”
