Emmerdale fans call for Bob and Bernice romance amid B&B venture

Emmerdale fans have shared their hopes for a new romance in the village, after spotting some very ominous chemistry between new business partners Bob Hope (played by Tony Audenshaw ) and Bernice Blackstock, (played by Samantha Giles.)

The duo recently embarked on a new business venture together, as they pooled their finances to buy the B&B, however some fans have predicted there might be more than just a career in hospitality on the cards for the duo, after the pair appeared to hit it off on screen.

This was especially apparent in Tuesday night’s episode when the pair got stuck in to renovations on their new property, with Bernice even sporting a pair of overalls for the privilege.

Dressed ready for a spot of DIY (or an “80’s Bananarama reunion”, according to one fan) Bernice revealed she was ready to begin painting the property and ordered a few sample pots to test out the colours.

However, Bob soon pointed out that they hadn’t even signed the paperwork yet and that she was getting ahead of herself.

It was this exchange that sent fans into overdrive, as the pair were bickering like an old married couple, before Bob finally caved to Bernice’s wishes and confessed that there was no harm done.

Immediately following the scene, fans were adamant that Bob and Bernice would make an adorable couple, with many feeling Bob’s current relationship with nurse Wendy was too stale and dull for the dose of levity the village needed.

“Bob needs to dump fake nurse Wendy and try his luck with Bernice, they have much better chemistry, plus may mean Wendy moves far far far far away,” commented one fan on social media.

Another agreed adding: “Don't let Wendy get in the middle of Bernice and Bob's partnership they are the humour #Emmerdale needs not her misery.”

“Bernice and Bob are the most perfect couple. I give it a month before they get together,” added another. Before continuing: “ And HOW have they never been an item? They've been in #emmerdale for decades!”

Following the purchase of the B&B, Bob has been left caught in the crossfire as of late, as he struggles to find a way for business partner Bernice and her sister Nicola King to see eye to eye, after the pair scooped the sale from under her nose.

Yet as well as the business to take care of, Bob’s own daughter Cathy has been struggled with debilitating periods lately, and confided in Bernice about her woes – showing there are already signs of approval for the redhead from Bob’s own children.

Could a romance truly be on the cards for the pair?

Emmerdale continues weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV and ITVX.
