He’s set to perform the Whitney Houston classic I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Speaking about being lined up to perform, Bradley said: “When I was asked to perform for The Woolpack Sessions I was delighted.

“It’s a perfect opportunity to put a smile on peoples’ faces in such a strange time.

“Everyone loves a good sing song and I will find any excuse to get the piano out. Hopefully people will like it and it will entertain them.

“I hope everyone is staying well and staying safe.”

Meanwhile, Emmerdale’s Digital Producer added: “With filming stopped we thought it would be fun to harness the creativity of our cast under lockdown.

“It’s been tricky getting the tech side of things sorted out but the cast involved are all really talented and we hope you will be impressed.”

Bradley has previously appeared on BBC competition Let It Shine and was a finalist, so his vocal talents are well-known.

Isobel has also displayed her own singing abilities regularly on social media and has even released her own EP, Sounds From The Lounge.

When can you watch Emmerdale The Woolpack Sessions?

Bradley’s turn at the mic will fill the soap-shaped hole on Thursday, April 30, at 7pm.

With all the soaps reducing episode broadcasts due to filming shut down as a result of coronavirus, fans have been calling for something soapy to air on a Thursday night.

Currently, Emmerdale airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, as does Coronation Street, while EastEnders is on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The scheduling changes leaves a big gap in the Thursday night soap fans’ calendar.
