Emmerdale boss Jane Hudson has revealed major spoilers for 2021.
The executive producer has teased births, marriages and deaths – and a huge return of a “much loved” character.
Speaking on an online press junket, she said: “We have a very much loved character coming back to the village.
“They are fantastic, light up the screen, the actor is shooting already, we are massively excited. That’s coming up very soon!”
Jane added: “We have births, wedding, funerals, relationships starting and ending.
“It’s a massive year – we have loads coming up. We will keep drip feeding across the year and we are still shooting – we stood down in March as they were no safety procedures in place.”
Meanwhile, the soap has two new characters Charles and Ethan.
Jane said the pair “don’t come quietly” and come in with “a bang that keeps on exploding”.
