Emmerdale cast look unrecognisable as they return to filming

A lot of the actors have new looks from lockdown

The Emmerdale cast looked unrecognisable in behind-the-scenes pictures as they returned to filming.

It was announced yesterday (Wednesday, May 21) that the ITV soap was the first in the UK to resume prodcution and would be doing six special lockdown episodes.

The news was announced on This Morning by Sharon Marshall. Meanwhile behind-the-scenes clips showed Danny Miller and Jeff Hordley, who play Aaron Dingle and Cain Dingle, on the set.

The two actors looked completely different as they kept their lockdown looks.

Danny and Jeff’s new look

In the pictures, Danny’s hair was still extremely short after shaving it off during lockdown.

Meanwhile Jeff was still rocking the outline of his moustache, which he debuted in a This Morning interview last month. It does seem he’s shaved the bulk of it off, though.

The different looks will accurately represent life in lockdown, that’s for sure!

The channel is working with the government to make sure all cast and crew are protected and there are strict guidelines in place whilst filming.

The measures will not only include social distancing. Filming units will stay together to work in designated studios with the crew using their own, sanitised equipment.
