Emmerdale star Danny Miller believes his character Aaron Dingle is “a lot harder” than serial killer Meena Jutla and would “leather her” in a fight.
As the 50th anniversary episode fast approaches, fans of the ITV soap can’t wait to see the return of some of their favourite characters over the years.
Last month, telly bosses announced that Aaron Dingle, Diane Sugden and Tracy Metcalfe will all return to the show for a huge storyline ahead.

In the past 12 months, the star has left the long-standing show, won I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! and helped his wife Steph Jones to raise their newborn son Albert.
With the highly-anticipated anniversary episode just around the corner, the King of the Jungle was asked if he was ever worried his character would be killed off by the killer nurse during his break away from the show.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Star and other publications, the actor proudly boasted that he had no concerns Meena would kill him offscreen.
He chuckled: “I think Aaron’s a lot harder than Meena anyway, I reckon he’d leather her.”
All jokes aside, Danny added that he was extremely grateful the ITV bosses “spared” his character from the wrath of Meena so that he could return in the future.
The TV hunk added: “It’s a risk because you can’t just go up there and say, ‘I’m leaving – don't you dare kill me off’.
“You’ve not got a say, you’re not the boss by any means. So, I was grateful to Jane and the team for sparing me.”

When the TV star was asked how it felt to step back into the role again after more than a year away from the show, the doting dad confessed that he felt “nervous” to step into his shoes again in case he didn’t do Aaron justice.
Danny continued: “I was nervous which I think was a good sight that I didn’t want anyone to think that I was slotting back in or that it would be easy.
“So it was a good thing that I was nervous and I thought, ‘Could I still do it after a year of doing nothing with Albert and Steph?’ So it’s great to see that the brain still works.”
