Emmerdale star reveals evil Russ is capable of anything – including murder

Emmerdale star Susan Cookson has warned that Wendy Posner and Victoria Barton are in serious danger as Wendy’s ex Russ shows up in the village, demanding money.

Russ’ mum has disowned him after his life of crime and after her death, she has left her money to baby Harry.

When Russ shows up, wanting what he believes he is owed. Wendy is absolutely terrified as she was in an abusive relationship with him.

And as he knows dark secret s about her, she is trapped as he demands that he finds a way to ensure Victoria’s money is transferred to him.

Warning that he is more dangerous than first imagine, Susan Cookson told Metro.co.uk: ‘At the early stages, he wants that money back along the lines that his mother just did it to spite him. He feels entitled to it. She doesn’t realise how much money he needs so he is interested in her savings.

‘But he laughs in her face as it’s a couple of thousand; it doesn’t come close to what he needs. There’s something much more serious going on and it’s horrendous to know the kind of crime he is now involved in. It’s way ramped up from when she knew him. The minimum he needs the £50,000.’

She continued: ‘It’s just so scary. She says she will get him the money but I think she is trying to lay down ground rules and fight back. She orders Russ to stay away but he has a hold over Wendy that it doesn’t make it that easy but she really wants him to stay away especially as Victoria is being sucked up by this nice guy act.

‘Victoria has been through so much because of the other Posners and now Wendy is effectively putting her at risk again and that’s huge for Wendy as Victoria let her into her life.

‘When we were filming it, to be in that position was horrible. The idea to introduce a child to someone she knows to a criminal is intimidating. The minute he claps eyes on his grandson, there’s an ulterior motive.

‘He doesn’t want to know Harry, there is much more at stake. Wendy is on thin ice after the trust she has built with Victoria. Seeing Harry introduced to someone she despises is terrifying but Wendy feels she has no choice.’
