Emmerdale boss reveals SEVEN massive spoilers including dark Christmas and exit
EMMERDALE’s boss has revealed seven massive spoilers viewers can expect this Christmas.
The festive season in the Yorkshire dales is set to be filled with drama with a heartbreaking drama in store.
Laura Shaw, who produces the hit ITV soap, has shared what exactly viewers can expect.
Speaking to UK Times, she revealed there’s a new baby on the way, a saucy affair and a batch of new characters.
Special Dingle episodes
Viewers can expect to see special episodes that will be based around one of the show’s most beloved families.
Teasing them, Laura said they will be ‘memorable’ with fans.
She said: “I think pretty much all the Dingles are going to be involved and the episodes were filmed in a slightly different way from our usual style and, true to its form, we’ve played with the format a little bit.
“There’s going to be lots of secrets being revealed and all the cast and crew that have been involved in the filming of it have been absolutely raving about it. Having seen the final episodes myself last week, I think it’s going to be very memorable.”
The show will tackle an important health storyline that is currently being kept close-guarded by bosses.
Laura did tease that the diagnosis will have a huge impact on the character’s lives including their family’s.
She explained: “We’re working closely with an amazing charity who have been guiding us every step of the way.
“It’s going to be quite a long storyline. It’s going to run over a period of months, years. Think along the lines of Ashley’s dementia storyline, it’s going to be like that.”
Laura said: “We’ve got some new people joining us as well. You’re going to meet Anil Goutam who plays Amit shortly – a new character joining us as part of the Sharma family.
“Obviously, we found out not so long ago that Rishi was actually not Jai’s biological father, and actually Jai’s father is Amit, who is Rishi’s brother and Suni’s father. So, clearly, we weren’t going to leave that one hanging for too long before we brought Amit in.
“What you’ll see with Amit is quite a dark and complex character, and although we see Suni wanting to stick around, could Suni end up regretting that? Is Amit hiding another secret that threatens to blow the whole family apart?”
The soap boss also shared that Emmerdale will welcome a new baby in the coming months.
As we already know Dawn and Billy are pregnant and waiting for the birth of the little bundle of joy.
Laura stopped short of revealing who will be giving birth to the mysterious newborn.
Soaps just wouldn’t be soaps without a saucy affair storyline – and script writers are lining one up.
Without naming names, Laura revealed one of the characters is currently very happily married…
She teased: “It’s going to affect a lot of our villagers. It’s also going to ultimately lead to a new arrival joining the show, which I can’t tell you about just yet because it won’t be until next year, but we’re very excited about it here.
“It’s going to be explosive, and that new arrival is going to cause uproar in the village.”
Just as you’d expect, there’s plenty of drama coming to the village this Christmas.
Emmerdale’s boss has said this year’s storylines will be different in tone to the last couple of years.
Laura hinted: “Heading up to Christmas we’ve got some exciting plans but I have absolutely, definitely been sworn to secrecy on this one!
“What I can tell you is that the last couple of years, we’ve kind of done a light, fluffier Christmas for Emmerdale, but this one is quite different in tone.
“A lot of it is edgier for us for Christmas and I can tell you that definitely not every one of our villagers will be sat down eating their turkey with all the trimmings on Christmas day.”
Finally, New Year’s will see the introduction of even more characters to the Dales.
Emmerdale airs on ITV1 and ITVX.
