“Heading up to Christmas we’ve got some exciting plans but I have absolutely, definitely been sworn to secrecy on this one,” Laura teased. “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.”
