Irish Sunday Mirror - - TALK TV -

Em­merdale star Joe Gill was taken aback when pro­duc­tion crew con­tacted him be­fore his fi­nal scenes as Finn Bar­ton – and asked him his height.

He said 5ft 10in, then re­alised they wanted to know so they could get his cof­fin size. Finn was shot dead by his mum in dra­matic scenes last week.

Joe, 23, said of see­ing his cof­fin on set: “It was a weird, out-of-body ex­pe­ri­ence. In no other job would you get to see your own cof­fin, fu­neral or grave!”

Joe had to keep Finn’s fate se­cret and said his mum and nan were re­duced to tears by the plot.

One thing Joe won’t miss is daily shav­ing – and ad­mit­ted girl­friend Mel prefers his nat­u­ral stub­ble. Finn is shot
