Speaking with Daily Mirror newspaper: “It’s always unnerving when we’ve got big storylines coming up, or events like the 50th anniversary this year. I immediately think, ‘Oh god they’re going to have to do something big for the 50th.

“Do they need to kill off a long-standing character in a spectacular way. Is that my exit?”

Emmerdale spoilers: What’s happening this year?

In a recent interview, producers Jane Hudson and Laura Shaw revealed what’s to come in 2022.

Emmerdale has confirmed there will be three big days this year, as well as a baby!

Jane revealed: “There may be a wedding this summer. You’ll have to wait and see, but you might not guess who that is right now.”

One couple we know are getting married are Billy and Dawn.

Laura spilled details of their big day: “Their wedding definitely will happen this year and it will happen on the most romantic day of the year on Valentine’s Day!

“Is it going to be happy ever after for these two or will disaster strike? I suspect it’s probably the latter.”

She continued: “We’ve also got another wedding coming up, a third one beyond that, and that’s a bit more of an unexpected twist, that’s going to shock a few of our villagers and ruffle a few feathers.

“But that is for later in the year and I can’t tell you too much about that.”

A baby arriving in 2022

Jane also said: “There will be a baby arriving in Emmerdale before the year is out.”

However she didn’t reveal who the mum would be, teasing there are plenty of female characters in the village who could give birth.
