Emmerdale star Paige Sandhu has shared a "hilarious" behind-the-scenes secret from her character Meena Jutla's chilling barn scenes earlier this year.
Viewers will recall that in January Meena locked Manpreet Sharma and Vinny Dingle in an abandoned barn and planned to kill them both in a horrific double murder plot.
However, Manpreet and Vinny were thankfully saved by Liam Cavanagh with Meena managing to escape before she was eventually caught months later and sentenced to a minimum of 75 years in prison.
Speaking exclusively to OK! at the 2022 British Soap Awards, Meena star Paige shared a "hilarious" behind-the-scenes secret from the chilling scenes.
She said: "When Meena was trying to kill Vinny and Manpreet, we were very very cold. It was the middle of January, we were out in a barn and there was no heating.
"So everyone had about five layers of clothing underneath all of our costume, so sometimes we were walking around like this…
"Even Rebecca, who is tiny, her arms looked like they had muscles on top of muscles. It was so hilarious!"
Paige also addressed whether her character Meena could make an explosive return for the ITV soap's 50th anniversary in October.
The hit ITV soap concluded murderer Meena's dramatic storyline in April as she was finally sentenced in court with actress Paige, 25, bidding farewell.
However, this hasn't stopped fans speculating that Meena could return to the village and escape from prison in an explosive twist for the ITV soap's 50th anniversary.
Discussing viewers' theories, Paige, who won Best Leading Performer at the event, teased: "Never say never!
"You know what, never say never, anything goes in Emmerdale, especially for the 50th.
"It's going to be the biggest and best year yet. In the past, historically, Emmerdale has broken other prisoners out of jail so it could happen… but we'll see."
It comes after Paige shared an emotional goodbye message last month after her character Meena's dramatic exit from the ITV soap.
