Inside Emmerdales Jonny McPhersons life onboard traditional canal boat with rescue dog
Emmerdale actor Jonny McPherson has given a glimpse inside the cosy narrowboat where he lives with his recuse dog, Molly.
The 40 year old, who plays Dr Liam Cavanagh in the ITV soap, has been living on the 60ft barge named Benedict for four years.
Jonny moors the beautiful boat near the Emmerdale studios in Leeds, Yorkshire, and has given an insight into his life on the canal to his 6,373 Twitter followers.
The traditional boat features navy paintwork and a gorgeous emerald green corner sofa decked with mustard yellow cushions.
Jonny has opted for dark wooden panelling throughout the boat and has even made room for a wine rack to store bottles of red.
The cosy narrowboat has pretty floral curtains to frame the quaint windows along with stained glass lampshades to add a warm glow to the cabin.

The Emmerdale star has chosen white brick tiles in the kitchen area and has hung cooper pans above the stove.
We can also see a beautiful wood burner in the living area and patterned tiles to complement the wooden features.
The tiled steps lead up to the cockpit where Jonny has placed a table and chairs to enjoy dinner al fresco.
Jonny has also shared a glimpse of everyday life on the barge which involves navigating the boat through locks and tunnels.
The top of the boat features solar panels to provide an eco-friendly source of power for heating and electricity.
His collier lurcher Molly often stars in many of Jonny’s snaps on-board the narrowboat after he adopted her from the RSPCA in January last year.
Jonny shared a snap of Molly relaxing on his check bedsheets while the room also features green leaf patterned wallpaper and oak wardrobes.
Posting a collection of snaps of his gorgeous pooch on the boat, the soap star captioned the snaps: "Was introduced to this lovely collie lurcher last week."
“Her name is Molly and I’m so grateful that we have an organisation that allows me to adopt an animal that, through no fault of her own, is now looking for a lifelong friend. She’s incredible. Thank you @RSPC_official.”
The actor was previously in a relationship with his Emmerdale co-star Natalie J Robb, who portrays Moira Barton in the hit ITV soap.
The pair confirmed their romance in July 2020, and quickly moved in together during lockdown.
Speaking to The Mirror, Jonny previously said: "We had to make a decision as lots of couples did.
"We decided to move in together and so, yes, lockdown did fast forward our relationship," he admitted.
When asked about what initially drew the pair to one another, Jonny admitted: "We get on so well. We come from quite different backgrounds but we are essentially the same person.
"We are both a pair of big kids. We have exactly the same stupid humour."
Jonny and Natalie moved in after just three months of dating after falling head over heels for each other during a trip to Lapland.
The soap stars said choosing to move in together during lockdown, after only three months of dating, could have been a make-or-break situation.
"There is nowhere to hide during lockdown. It's a real test of whether you do get on with a person and thankfully we got through with flying colours."
However, Jonny and Natalie reportedly called it quits in 2021, according to Digital Spy.
