Mark Charnock and Dominic Brunt want a zombie themed episode of Emmerdale.
The two soap co-stars – who have also produced Zombie Film Festival event together at the Leeds City Varieties theatre – would love to take their passion even further and get bosses on board for a Halloween special.
Dominic – who plays Paddy Kirk on the show and directed 2013 horror movie Before Dawn – told The Sun newspaper’s TV Bizarre column: “I want to do a Halloween special – it’d be great. Everybody could be bitten to death by zombies and we all turn into zombies.”
His cast mate Mark, 50, (Marlon Dingle) would be delighted at the opportunity to give their day job a spooky twist.
He added: “It might be genius. Someone get me a pen and paper. I need to speak to the producer immediately.”

Although Dominic, 48, wants to add a dose of horror to the Dales, he previously admitted that he gets “petrified” before filming despite playing vet Paddy for over two decades.
He said: “I am loyal to the show and it still frightens the life out of me. I still shake before every scene because it’s petrifying.
“You put eight million people on a hillside watching each episode, that’s quite sobering.”
The Adult Babies star is still best mates with Mark after meeting him on his first day on set, and he admitted he “adores” the actor.
He added: “I walked into the green room on my first day and all these people off the telly were just sat there. I didn’t know where to put myself.
“Then Mark comes bounding over like Bambi and says, ‘Hi, I’m Mark Charnock. Who are you?’ I knew from that moment we’d be best mates. And he still makes me cry laughing every day. I adore him.”
